Alight, a leading cloud-based human capital and technology services provider today announced it has been named to Seramount’s sixth annual Inclusion Index. The Inclusion Index measures organizations in three key areas: best practices in the recruitment, retention, and advancement of people from underrepresented groups; inclusive corporate culture, including leadership accountability; and demographic diversity for women and racial/ethnic minorities.
Alight was among the 54 organizations of the 175 that were judged to be recognized for creating an inclusive workplace based on this criterion.
“We are honored to be recognized in Seramount’s 2022 Inclusion Index,” said Michael Rogers, chief human resources officer at Alight. “Championing people is one of our core values and we believe that diversity should be visible, valued, and sustained throughout the organization. We are committed to enabling an inclusive culture of belonging that engages all colleagues and grows the diversity of our talent to proudly represent the clients and communities we serve.”
Over the past two years Alight has launched several colleague-led communities (CLCs) designed to serve as employee resource groups to build more cultural awareness, professional development and networking opportunities among colleagues. The CLCs are an integral component of Alight's commitment to drive change in diversity and inclusion by:
- Sharing knowledge and acting as a bridge across cultural issues
- Working as an employee support system providing education, personal growth, information and idea sharing
- Assisting with recruitment and retention efforts
- Supporting managerial effectiveness, leadership development, succession planning and communication with colleagues
“We are pleased to see corporations continue to focus on their DEI efforts effectiveness by evaluating their accountability measures through precise metrics that pinpoint any challenges and create opportunities for next steps” says Katie Oertli Mooney, Managing Director of Diversity Best Practices at Seramount. “We are proud to recognize our Inclusion Index companies for their progress and dedication to creating inclusive workplaces where all talent is valued and set up for their own success.”
Seramount has also recognized Alight as a Top Company for Executive Women, a Best Company for Dads and as one of the top 100 Best Companies for 2022. To read the full Inclusion Index report, visit Seramount.com
