Humana has been honored with the top 5-star rating in employment by the 2018 HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (HACR CII), a research initiative conducted by the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) and the HACR Research Institute to measure Hispanic inclusion in corporate America.
Humana also received high marks in the categories of governance, philanthropy and procurement.
The employment category assessed:
• Recruitment, hiring, attrition and turnover
• Inclusive development opportunities with goals (internships, mentoring, sponsorships, succession planning)
• Success of a Hispanic Network Resource Group (Humana’s Unidos NRG has over 1,500 members. Twenty-nine percent of Humana associates are in at least one NRG)
• Overall I&D strategy and leadership support
“We’re honored to be on this list, because it speaks to our goal of having a culture where every associate feels welcome, appreciated and encouraged to speak up and provide their unique perspectives,” said Maria Hughes, Senior Vice President and Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer at Humana. “Our associates reflect the communities in which we work, increasing engagement and innovation as we help our members achieve their own best health.”
The HACR CII survey lets companies better understand the needs of the evolving Hispanic community, develop Hispanic initiatives, and make significant progress toward greater Hispanic inclusion in the business world.
“By adopting Hispanic inclusiveness, companies are cultivating a corporate culture that promotes forward thinking, which sustains their ability to outpace competitors,” said Dr. Lisette Garcia, HACR senior vice president and COO of HACR’s Board of Directors.
