Humana Again Listed Among Top 50 Companies for Diversity


Humana climbs to No. 42 on the DiversityInc list, which honors
leadership in such areas as hiring, retaining and promoting women,
minorities, people with disabilities, LGBTQ and veterans

(NYSE:HUM) has again been named to The DiversityInc list of Top
50 Companies for Diversity
, the most rigorous, data-driven analysis
of diversity management practices in corporate America. Humana is No. 42
on the list, up from No. 48 last year.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

This extensive annual survey recognizes companies that excel in such
areas as hiring, retaining and promoting women, minorities, people with
disabilities, LGBTQ and veterans. This year's competition was improved
by adding questions that connect talent programs and workplace practices
to desired talent results.

"By fostering an inclusive and welcoming work environment, Humana makes
it possible for all employees to give 100 percent effort toward
improving the health of our members," said Humana President and CEO
Bruce D. Broussard, who attended the awards ceremony in New York and
took part in a panel discussion titled "Male CEOs Having a Candid
Conversation About Mentoring Women." "Inclusion and Diversity is a key
business imperative for us … it's one we celebrate too as it brings
growth and innovation, and drives greater empathy and understanding of
our members and teammates."

Humana also was named the No. 7 company for Philanthropy, No. 15 for
Veterans, and No. 22 among Companies for Diversity Councils.

More than 1,800 companies are evaluated for the DiversityInc Top 50 list
each year, rated in four key areas of diversity management:

  • Talent Pipeline: workforce breakdown, recruitment, diameter of
    existing talent, structures
  • Talent Development: employee resource groups, mentoring,
    philanthropy, movement, fairness
  • Leadership Accountability: responsible for results, personal
    communications, visibility
  • Supplier Diversity: spend with companies owned by people from
    underrepresented groups, accountability, support

"Our company is committed to a healthy work environment, where all
associates are comfortable and confident being their whole selves," said
Tim Huval, Humana's Chief Human Resources Officer. "We believe that our
workplace should reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. By
recognizing the potential in all associates, we will retain the best
talent and be the employer of choice."

The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list is derived
exclusively from corporate survey submissions, and there is no cost. To
be considered for a spot in the DiversityInc Top 50, a company must
score above average in recruitment, talent development, senior
leadership commitment and supplier diversity. Companies are evaluated
within the context of their own industries.

The list began in 2001, at the same time many corporations were
beginning to understand the business value of diversity-management
initiatives. Like diversity management itself, the list has evolved
significantly and continues to be refined and improved to reflect how
rapidly companies are adapting these strategies.

This year's award dinner was well attended by C-suite executives —
including 22 CEOs and 24 CHROs — from 28 industries representing more
than 3 million US employees.
