Advantage Solutions has been named one of “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2023″ by Newsweek and market data research firm Plant-A Insights, which released a list of 1,000 companies that employees say “really respect and value different kinds of people.”
“Most companies these days talk a lot about diversity,” said Nancy Cooper, global editor-in-chief, Newsweek. “It is common to hear employers emphasizing their efforts to recruit and promote people of different ages, races, genders, sexuality and abilities. And that makes sense, not only because diversity is important particularly to younger job applicants, but also because it is well-documented that workplaces filled with people with different world views are more creative, more innovative and generally make better decisions. Employing a wide variety of people who feel comfortable and respected isn’t a desirable perk, it is simply good business.”
The scoring was based on a review of publicly available data, interviews with human resources professionals and an anonymous online survey of a diverse pool of employees at companies with 1,000 or more employees in the United States. Respondents were asked questions about corporate culture, working environment and other subjects at their own companies and at others they were familiar with. The survey yielded more than 350,000 company reviews.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as a workplace that respects and encourages diversity. Our responsibility at Advantage is to keep diversity, equity and inclusion centered in everything we do,” said Giannina Seaman, senior director of diversity, equity and inclusion. “Through our diversity training programs, eight employee resource groups and work of our DE&I Councils and DE&I Board members, we continue to infuse DE&I into our Advantage DNA and cultivate a workplace where everyone is welcome, included and valued and all can succeed.”
