The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and Disability:2022 IN's Disability Equality Index® awarded Randstad USA a flawless score of 100, the company revealed today. Randstad has got this high score for the third year in a row.
“Ensuring Randstad is an inclusive and equitable environment for all of our employees is at the core of all that we do,”
said Denise Dettingmeijer, Chief Financial Officer, Randstad North America and executive sponsor of Randstad’s Abilities in Motion business resource group.
“We are honored to once again receive the best possible score on this year’s Disability Equality Index and are committed to finding new ways to further disability and inclusion for both our employees and our customers.”
The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a benchmarking tool that helps companies build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions that they can take to achieve disability inclusion and equality. As a top-scoring business ranking 80 or above, Randstad has been recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion.”
“Achieving this score on the Disability Equality Index reflects the hard work of everyone at Randstad to foster a workplace culture that is as inclusive as possible,”
said Audra Jenkins, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Randstad North America.
“We are eager to continue to engage with and learn from the disability community on how to create accessible, inclusive work environments. I also want to thank our Abilities Business Resource Group (BRG) which has been instrumental in raising awareness of issues impacting our diabled team members.”
The DEI is the world’s most comprehensive benchmarking tool to help companies improve in disability inclusion. Each participating company receives a score on a scale of zero to 100. Over 400 corporations used the Disability Equality Index this year to measure their disability inclusion efforts.
“Companies can no longer treat diversity and inclusion as an afterthought,”
said Rebecca Henderson, CEO of Randstad Global Businesses and Randstad N.V. Executive Board Member.
“Randstad aligns itself with efforts like the Disability Equality Index to continue our leadership in establishing and executing initiatives that are successful in making progress on workplace equity and inclusion.”
The DEI is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the nation’s largest disability rights organization, and Disability:IN, the global business disability inclusion network, to collectively advance the inclusion of people with disabilities.
