Diversity is the fuel that drives innovation at successful companies.
In the end, it starts with people and ends with breakthrough product, but along the way it is fed by a company’s ability to maintain a diverse, nurturing and inclusive work culture.
There is no shortage of these values at FCA US LLC as confirmed by the editors of Latina Style Magazine who named the Company to the prestigious list of the top 50 U.S. employers for Hispanic women for the fourteenth time in the past two decades. The ranking is part of the magazine’s annual Latina Style 50 Report (LS50 Report).
The LS50 Report highlights companies that have a dedicated commitment to diverse recruitment and promotion initiatives, including programs to recruit veterans and military personnel. The Report is considered “the most respected evaluation of corporate America’s employment opportunities and policies as they pertain to Latinas.”
FCA US ranked #12 of 50 top employers named to the list. More than 800 U.S employers were evaluated. This was the fourteenth year the Company has been included in the Top 50 Report since the benchmark was established in 1998.
“Diversity and inclusion are core elements of the FCA US’ business strategy, and vital to our efforts to develop a workforce that enables the Company to innovate and compete in a dynamic, competitive industry,” said Kelly Tolbert, Head of Diversity, FCA US LLC. “Our consistent high performance on this important benchmark is a testament to the Company’s commitment to maintaining a work environment that respects and engages all people and cultures.”
“We congratulate FCA US on the outstanding career advancement opportunities it continues to provide its employees,” said Robert Bard, President & CEO, Latina Style Magazine. “Such an outstanding record of performance can only be achieved when there is full commitment throughout the Company to diversity and Inclusion.”
Latina Style Magazine began the LS50 Report as “a quest to explore deeper into the business world and bring forth powerful and useful information on the increasing importance of recruiting professional Latinas.”
In 1997, with the assistance of the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and national Hispanic organizations, the magazine developed a comprehensive survey that is sent annually to Fortune 1000 companies. The LS50 Report, the result of that annual survey process, highlights each selected company's leadership programs, employee benefits and Latina representation in senior positions.
The report is distributed to Hispanic professional and civic organizations, national women's organizations, colleges and universities, all Members of Congress, the White House, and Members of the Cabinet, military and veteran’s organizations as well as at major Hispanic and recruitment conferences.
