Two magazines have recognized Clorox in their special August 2013 issues for promoting inclusion in the workplace and employment opportunities for those who have served in the U.S. military. Hispanic Network Magazine named the company to its Best of the Best list for diversity, while U.S. Veterans Magazine recognized Clorox on its Best of the Best list for veterans.
The magazines polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies to compile their “Best of the Best” lists.
The goal of the annual evaluations is to not only bring the latest information and guidance to readers, but also to encourage active outreach and diversity policies among corporations and government agencies. They also work to open up immediate, lucrative employment, business and supplier opportunities for veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans and veteran business owners.
The lists were compiled from market research, independent research, diversity conference participation and survey responses that were performed by DiversityComm’s agents and/or affiliates. This year, more than 250 companies and institutions participated.
“The companies that make our Best of the Best list are committed to helping individuals and small businesses realize a better future by providing an inclusive environment for employment and subcontracting,” said Mona Lisa Faris, president and publisher of the Hispanic Network Magazine. “Because of their efforts, Hispanic representation is on the rise in all areas of business.”
Adds Faris, who serves in the same role for U.S. Veterans Magazine: “It is our firm belief that veterans possess the character, discipline and skills that every business can profit from. This magazine was created to support our troops, and we are proud to recognize other businesses that are also making veterans a priority.”
