Maximus Named to Forbes’ List of America’s Best Employers for Diversity

RESTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Maximus (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, was named to Forbes’ list of America’s Best Employers for Diversity 2021. Maximus is honored to have received such recognition highlighting our ongoing efforts to create a more inclusive workplace and culture for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I).

“Today’s social justice movement has brought needed focus and renewed energy to issues our nation has faced for hundreds of years. We must ensure our efforts and resources support the right initiatives. And to do so, Maximus must lead by example. This recognition showcases our continued strides toward our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion,” said Michelle Link, Chief Human Resources Officer, Maximus.

As part of our ongoing strategy to increase DE&I in the workplace, Maximus seeks to foster a culture that respects and values individual contributions and differences. A commitment to create a more inclusive workplace has materialized through many forms, including developing DE&I workshops, monthly Community Conversations, and networking events. In 2020, the Company launched its DE&I Steering and Design Committees which lead efforts around employee diversity across race and ethnicity, gender, position, and division.

“We are seeing a shift in nationwide consciousness. Systemic change won’t happen overnight, but that won’t keep us from advocating and leading our efforts. We could not have the positive impact on the lives of the individuals and families we serve without a diverse and inclusive workforce and culture,” said Link.

In partnership with Statista, a market research company, Forbes selected America’s Best Employers for Diversity based upon an independent survey of over 50,000 U.S. employees who work for companies with a minimum of 1,000 employees. Participants rated organizations based on several criteria, including age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, equality, and general diversity. The list recognizes the top 500 employers who received the most recommendations from employees and have the most proactive diversity and inclusion initiatives including the most diverse boards and top governing ranks.

In 2020, 41% of PPG’s intern class and approximately 33% of professional hires globally were women.

“PPG believes in sustaining a workforce that is representative of the customers and communities we serve, and that includes a focus on our female population,” said Marvin Mendoza, PPG global head, diversity, equity and inclusion. “Countless studies have proven that gender diverse teams enhance business performance, but aside from being a smart organizational initiative, focusing on diversity, equity and inclusion is the right thing to do. At PPG, we know there is exciting work ahead, as we continue to cultivate a truly inclusive and equitable workplace. We are elated to celebrate the progress in our company’s journey.”

Forbes ranked the top 300 employers based on an independent survey from Statista of around 50,000 U.S. employees, including more than 30,000 women, at companies with a minimum of 1,000 employees. Survey participants evaluated companies on a number of criteria, including diversity among top executives and board members, working conditions, wages, parental leave policies, family support, flexibility, representation and pay equity.

Pitney Bowes Named One of Forbes’ Best Employers for Women 2021

Company receives award for fourth consecutive year

STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pitney Bowes Inc. (NYSE:PBI), a global technology company that provides commerce solutions in the areas of ecommerce, shipping, mailing and financial services, has been recognized as part of Forbes’ annual list of America’s Best Employers for Women 2021. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

The Best Employers for Women 2021 were chosen based on an independent survey of 50,000 employees currently employed at companies with at least 1,000 workers in their U.S. operations and focused around issues relevant to women in the workplace. The participants assessed their companies according to the following criteria: Discrimination, Family Support, Flexibility, Parental Leave, Pay Equity, and Representation & Career. Additionally, participants were asked to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively with regards to gender issues, from which only the recommendations of women were considered.

“Pitney Bowes is a place that not only talks about diversity and inclusion, but actually demonstrates it as well. I feel it in every conversation. Everybody is being valued. People pause and listen or ask that clarifying question,” said Ana Chadwick, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Pitney Bowes. “It’s both the diversity and the inclusiveness that I have felt that makes me incredibly proud to have joined—be a part of—Pitney Bowes.”

“Pitney Bowes is thrilled to be recognized by Forbes as a Best Employer for Women for the fourth consecutive year,” said Sheryl Battles, Vice President Global Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement at Pitney Bowes. “Through generations of leadership and continuing changes in our business, we’ve sought to deliver our best to our stakeholders by creating a diverse and inclusive culture. We are proud of our long history of strategic action and advocacy for diversity and inclusion, but also know there is more work to do and are energized to continue moving forward.”

Pitney Bowes established its first Women’s Resource Group in the late 1980s to support the growth of women throughout the company. The Pitney Bowes Women’s Inclusion Network (PBWIN) was established in 2016 to create a community of advocates and allies of all genders who want to grow their awareness and understanding, enhance collaboration and support the professional advancement of women. It is based on the belief that when women win, the company wins and is designed to create opportunities for conversation, learning, and best practice exchange for women’s growth and development.

In 2020, in response to the challenges of the pandemic, PBWIN created a separate network for caregivers of all genders, the Pitney Bowes Caregiver Assurance Network (PBCAN). PBCAN provides a voice and forum to leverage practical information, education and support about the joys and challenges of caring for others while navigating the professional world.

Pitney Bowes’ history of diversity and inclusion started in the 1940s, and that legacy of leadership continues through today with active support from the Board of Directors, CEO and leadership team and employees. The company’s vision is to use diversity and inclusion as a competitive differentiator to attract and engage the best talent, generate enhanced value for clients, work together better and deliver relevant innovation in the markets it operates. The company’s belief in the value of leveraging differences to produce superior results can be seen in the fact that Women have led a variety of Pitney Bowes businesses and operations since the 1990s. Today, women comprise 50% of the company’s Board of Directors, 43% of the global workforce, 30% of the Senior Management Team and 32% of management.
