Aramark Recognised by Black Enterprise
Aramark has again been named a Black Enterprise magazine "Top 50" company for its policy of inclusion of people from all races and demographics.
“We strive to create a workplace culture of diversity and inclusion, and we are honored to once again be recognized by BLACK ENTERPRISE,” said Lynn B. McKee, Executive Vice President of Human Resources for Aramark. “Our 270,000 team members, who represent many different backgrounds, perspectives, talents, beliefs and values, are the backbone of our vibrant workforce, and essential to our success. We share this year’s recognition with them.”
BLACK ENTERPRISE is the premier business, investing and wealth-building resource for African Americans. The magazine surveys the top 1,000 publicly traded companies, as well as the 100 leading global companies with strong U.S. operations. The qualitative survey focuses on activities related to the participation of African Americans and members of other ethnic minority groups in four categories: employee base, senior management, board of directors and supplier diversity.
Aramark has nine employee resource groups (ERGs), giving team members access to like-minded people with similar backgrounds and interests.
Aramark’s diversity and inclusion efforts have consistently been recognized by other notable organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign, DiversityInc., the Disability Equality Index and CAREERS & the disABLED Magazine.
