MENLO PARK, Calif. – November 11, 2023 – Global consulting firm Protiviti has been named to the Seramount Global Inclusion Index. The annual index honors companies across the globe that excel at hiring and promoting women, measuring other underrepresented groups on a country-specific basis, creating and maintaining inclusive cultures, and holding country leaders and managers accountable for results. Protiviti achieved the index for Australia, China, Germany, India, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom. The firm was also named to the Seramount Inclusion Index in the U.S. for the sixth consecutive year.
“At Protiviti, we are committed to creating an inclusive, purpose-driven culture that celebrates diversity, acknowledges the importance of equity, and empowers employees across a broad range of backgrounds to thrive,” said Susan Haseley, Protiviti executive vice president, Global ESG & Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. “We are honored to be recognized for implementing programs and initiatives across our global locations that help to build an even more inclusive and equitable environment.”
To determine the index, Seramount reviewed in-depth information from participating organizations, including policies and programs centered on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), along with leadership accountability and practices. Other factors considered included measurements of women’s progress, including demographic data at each level; recruitment, mentoring and sponsorship efforts; Employee Resource Groups; pay equity; and supplier diversity.
“We continually evaluate our DEI initiatives to determine the most impactful ways to nurture equity, inclusion and belonging throughout our organization,” said Andy Clinton, Protiviti executive vice president, International Operations. “One of our core values, inclusion is integral to the work we do and resonates not only in our workplace, but also among our clients and the global communities we serve.”
Now in its fourth year, the Global Inclusion Index provides organizations with the metrics needed to understand trends and opportunities in demographic representation, creates a roadmap to drive internal change, and identifies DEI solutions to close any gaps.
In 2023, Protiviti was also honored by Seramount as a Best Workplace for Multicultural Women and a Top Company for Executive Women. Additionally, the firm earned places on the Fortune Best Workplaces for Millennials™ and PEOPLE Companies That Care lists.
