Acuity Insurance is named to the Forbes list of The Best Employers for Diversity 2019, identified from an independent survey of more than 50,000 U.S. employees working for large companies and organizations.
In collaboration with Statista, Forbes ranked the top 500 employers across all industries in the United States, based on surveying thousands of employees and examining employer diversity policies, as well as diversity in executive suites and on boards. Employees who took part in the survey were not contacted through their employers but, rather, did so on their own through several online access channels.
This latest award adds to recognition Acuity has received for its employee-focused workplace.
“In 2018, we were honored to be named to the Forbes list of America’s Best Midsize Employers as well as The Best Employers for Women. Today, we are grateful to be recognized as one of The Best Employers for Diversity,” said Ben Salzmann, Acuity President and CEO. “This recognition is particularly rewarding because a company cannot apply for the Forbes awards. These awards come from a grassroots effort of our employees feeling so strongly about Acuity that they took the initiative to share their thoughts on their own accord.”
“We strive to create a great workplace where everyone can feel welcome and supported,” said Joan Ravanelli Miller, Acuity’s General Counsel/Vice President - Human Resources. “Creating a positive work environment is important to every one of the more than 1,300 people who work for Acuity.”
