Randstad US recognized as a top-scoring company on the 2020 Disability Equality Index

PR Newswire

ATLANTA, July 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Known for its commitment to diversity and inclusion practices, Randstad US has earned a top score of 100 on the 2020 Disability Equality Index (DEI), recognizing the company as a "Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion." Earning such a high score means Randstad adheres to numerous leading disability inclusion practices. Randstad US joins a list of companies known for their outstanding commitment and leading disability inclusion practices.

"We may be in the thralls of a global pandemic and social justice reform crisis, but nurturing a more inclusive workplace can't just fall by the wayside," said Audra Jenkins, chief diversity and inclusion officer at Randstad North America. "It is just as important as other business strategies, and it ought to be at the top of the priority list for many organizations now more than ever before."

"The best way to attract, retain and grow talent with disabilities is to create an accessible, inclusive workplace. This year's top-scoring Disability Equality Index companies are demonstrating their commitment to many of the numerous leading disability inclusion practices featured in the DEI, recognizing that there's still room for improvement," said Jill Houghton, president and chief executive officer, Disability:IN. "We are proud to have developed strong partnerships with corporate allies who are committed to advancing disability inclusion and equality across their businesses in the United States and around the world."

The DEI is a unique, joint initiative of Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). It serves as the nation's most comprehensive annual benchmarking tool allowing America's leading corporations to self-report their disability policies and practices. This evolving index objectively scores each corporation on a scale from 0 to 100 — with 100 representing the most inclusive.
