Humana is among Mogul’s Top 100 Innovators in Diversity & Inclusion in 2018, a list that honors companies making the greatest strides in leadership diversity, employee resources and mentorship, and service to the community and sustainable efforts.

These companies excel in “hiring a diverse talent, creating welcoming environments and communities for employees and contributing to society in meaningful ways,” Mogul said. “The Top 100 were determined through weighted scoring, taking into account minority representation in top leadership roles, support and resources for employees, and social contribution within each organization.” Humana is No. 58 on the list.

“We’re honored to be recognized as part of this group,” said Maria Hughes, Humana’s Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer. “Our vibrant, diverse workforce and inclusive culture at Humana helps us thrive as a team and inspires our work every day. We work hard to make sure every employee feels valued and engaged, despite differences in race, age, culture, sexual orientation or gender. It’s that inclusive culture that makes us strong and allows us to understand and empathize with our members as we help them achieve their best health.”

Mogul said, “At Humana, 61% of the management and supervisor roles are held by women and 43% of associates are people of color. Humana pursues several multicultural initiatives in the communities where their associates live, including the YMCA Black Achiever’s Program, Habitat for Humanity, Project BUILD and a partnership with the National Council of La Raza.”

Humana’s Bold Goal is to make the communities it serves 20 percent healthier by 2020. Key to that are efforts to promote employee health and well-being — including the right to bring their true selves to work — and to be good corporate citizens who work sustainably.

Humana has ranked No. 2 in its industry – the company’s highest-ever ranking – in Fortune magazine’s 2018 listing of the World’s Best and Most Admired Companies. Humana was No. 3 last year in the category of Health Care: Insurance and Managed Care.

The Fortune annual ranking is the worldwide gold standard for the measurement of corporate reputation. Humana ranked No. 1 in the category of Social Responsibility, and also ranked high in areas such as Innovation and People Management.

To conduct the survey, Fortune and partner Korn Ferry started with about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue, along with non-U.S. companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database that have revenues of $10 billion or more. The list was pared to the highest-revenue companies in each industry, a total of 680 in 29 countries. The top-rated companies were picked from that list of 680.

To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, Korn Ferry asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.

As the world’s population ages, and chronic conditions become epidemic, healthcare leaders around the world “must shift from reactive, episodic care to managing health holistically, where the focus is helping people change their lifestyles so they can live healthier lives,” Humana President and CEO Bruce Broussard wrote in a World Economic Forum blog post.

Bruce’s blog, in advance of this year’s World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, noted that for decades health professionals have reacted to health problems, rather than addressing their causes.

“America’s costly, fragmented healthcare system, known for isolating and confusing people, is not sustainable in managing a growing population of ageing people living with chronic conditions,” he wrote.

“But it’s not just a US problem. The global population of the oldest seniors, 80 years of age or older, is expected to triple, to 446.6 million people, by 2050. Combined with the 50% of the world’s population that lives with chronic diseases today, this will certainly challenge healthcare systems around the world.

“Healthcare leaders worldwide must shift from reactive, episodic care to managing health holistically, where the focus is helping people change their lifestyles so they can live healthier lives.”

He offered suggestions to hasten change, from addressing the social determinants of health, to moving toward value-based care, to adopting interoperable workflows and systems. Together, such initiatives can slow chronic disease progression across the world.
