In today's corporate landscape, diversity is a widely discussed topic. Employers highlight their commitment to recruiting and advancing individuals of various ages, races, genders, sexual orientations and abilities. Companies recognize that a diverse workforce contributes significantly to organizational success. Diverse workforces cultivate creativity and innovation that stem from a mix of perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds, fostering a dynamic environment where new ideas come to life.

Companies also value diversity for its positive impact on talent attraction and retention. In a globalized job market, attracting diverse, skilled professionals is vital for staying competitive. Job seekers, particularly younger generations, seek employers that prioritize diversity and inclusion. Employees are more likely to stay with a company that nurtures an inclusive culture where everyone feels valued—contributing to higher levels of job satisfaction and reducing turnover rates.

While the attention on diversity has surged among companies, it can be challenging for job seekers, customers and potential partners to discern which organizations are genuinely dedicated to supporting a diverse workforce. In response, Newsweek and market data research firm Plant-A Insights Group are proud to present, for the second year, America's Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2024, featuring the top large and mid-size companies recognized by their employees for genuinely respecting and valuing individuals from different walks of life.

Our scoring process involved a thorough examination of publicly available data, interviews with HR professionals, and an anonymous online survey conducted among a diverse group of employees at companies in the U.S. Respondents shared insights into corporate culture, working environments and other aspects of both their own companies and others they were familiar with, resulting in over 1.5 million company reviews.

The winning companies are categorized into 78 industries. We recognize large companies with more than 5,000 employees and mid-size companies that employ more than 1,000 people but fewer than 5,000. Notably, the top-scoring companies on our list represent a diverse array of businesses, including A+E Networks, American Savings Bank, Boeing, Live Nation, PDQ, SurveyMonkey and World Wide Technology, to name a few.
