TIAA-CREF was named to DiversityInc's 2015 Top 50 Companies for Diversity for the company's ongoing commitment to establishing effective and successful approaches to diversity and inclusion.
The Top 50 Companies for Diversity is considered the premiere recognition for organizations with a clear and sustained allegiance to diversity and inclusion in and beyond the workplace setting. TIAA-CREF ranked 37 on the list.
"Diversity and inclusion is integral to who we are as a company and who we've always been, "said Roger Ferguson, President and CEO of TIAA-CREF. "For us, it's not just a nice to have. It's a must. A diverse workforce helps us better understand and address the needs of our customers. It brings a range of experiences and perspectives to the table, which leads to more innovative thinking and better problem-solving".
"At TIAA-CREF diversity and inclusion is deeply woven into our culture - and while we're proud to be counted among the most diverse companies, we don't ever take it for granted, "said Natasha Radden, Vice President and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer of TIAA-CREF. "It's something you continually need to keep a close eye on. It will always be a top priority for us because we've seen the impact it can have for our employees and our business."
