Alight, Inc. (NYSE: ALIT), a leading cloud-based human capital and technology services provider, today published its 2023 Global Impact Report covering Alight’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy, performance and progress in 2022. Alight’s ESG priorities are aimed at delivering innovative solutions focused on the social component of ESG to improve employees’ overall wellbeing.
“Leaders today have no higher calling than to care for the wellbeing of workers and their families,” said Stephan Scholl, CEO at Alight. “We are uniquely positioned to support employers as they answer this call and are proud to support thousands of clients including 70 percent of the Fortune 100—encompassing 36 million employees and dependents worldwide—in caring for their employees, a key component of the “S” in our ESG strategy.”
Alight’s ESG strategy focuses on three core pillars —championing our people, social innovation and responsible business practices— that are directly tied to the company’s culture, products and operations. Alight’s 2022 ESG accomplishments include:
- Championing our people. In 2022, Alight formalized its diversity, equity and inclusion policy, to drive diversity of Alight’s workforce across the U.S. As a result, Alight filled 25% of job openings with internal candidates and reported a 66% female and 41% ethnically/ racially diverse workforce.
- Social innovation. Alight expanded its employee experience platform, Alight Worklife®, to create a more personalized and integrated experience for employees and support them across the four pillars of total wellbeing including a healthy mind, body, wallet and life. Additionally, Alight launched solutions to advance employee accessibility and support for complex and challenging medical care situations.
- Responsible business practices. Alight aligned with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures recommendations and assessed the materiality of Scope 3 emission categories in its continued commitment to measure and reduce greenhouse emissions across the company’s international portfolio. As well, Alight initiated the development of a new Supplier Management Program that will fully be operational in 2024.
