The Best Employers for Diversity 2024 were identified in an independent survey from a vast sample of over 170,000 U.S.-based employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S. The evaluation was based on three different criteria:    

  • Personal Recommendations: Employees were asked to give their opinions on a series of statements regarding Age, Gender, Ethnicity, Disability, LGBTQIA+ & General Diversity in their current workplace.    

  • Public Recommendations: Participants were also given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively with regard to diversity.    

  • KPIs: Extensive research was carried out to evaluate how companies fared across a range of diversity-related best-practices. This included things like Representation, Accountability & Communication, Internal Initiatives, and External Involvement.  

“We are proud to be included on this year’s Forbes List of Best Employers for Diversity,” said Andrea Lawson, Equifax Chief Talent & Diversity Officer. “While we celebrate this accomplishment, we recognize there is more to be done.
