I believe our inclusive culture is one of our greatest strengths and that by doing the hard work, we will make a measurable impact in advancing a culture of inclusion and in building stronger, healthier and safer communities."

Companies are evaluated within the context of their own industries. More than 1,800 companies participated in 2020.

"At Humana, our Inclusion and Diversity journey is a part of the fabric of who we are as a company," said. Chris Johnson, Interim Chief Inclusion & Diversity Officer. "We have taken intentional steps to nurture a culture where all employees, no matter who they are, feel like they can be their best selves, to do their best work. When our associates are free to bring their best selves to work, we can make the best decisions for our members and guide them toward better health and well-being."

Humana works intentionally to create a culture of inclusion by focusing on:

  • Culture & Engagement teams, Network Resource Groups, and many other associate-driven initiatives anchor Humana's inclusive culture.
  • Diverse recruiting and hiring practices as a specific focus helps combat bias and balance our workforce in a way that gives us the competitive edge we need. 
  • Associate support like Career Cultivation and the Employee Assistance Program help our associates thrive, adding to our appeal in the rankings. 
  • Philanthropy, volunteerism hours and Humana's giving programs are carefully analyzed to show the good we give back to our communities. 
  • Supplier Diversity teammates ensure Humana's is investing in businesses owned by diverse groups such as women, people of color, people with disabilities, and veterans.  
  • Our Human Capital Analytics team tracks and maintains diversity data that allows us to successfully complete surveys like the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies in Diversity.

With every stride we make toward advancing Inclusion & Diversity, we see how much further we still need to go. Together, we'll remain dedicated to achieving our goals for diversity, inclusion, and equity. 

This award, yet again demonstrates, our continued commitment to driving cultural competency forward but we can't take our foot of the pedal. Together, we will remain dedicated to achieving our goals for diversity, inclusion, and equity.
