Eastman has been recognised as part of Forbes’ annual list of Best Employers for Diversity for 2020. The prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista, the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. Headquartered in US, Eastman is a specialty materials company that produces a range of products found in items people use every day.
Out of the tens of thousands of qualified organisations in the US, 500 companies earned this distinction, and Eastman is one of them. The study was an anonymous online survey taken by more than 60,000 employees working for firms or institutions that employ 1,000 or more people. The following parameters were considered in the study: age, gender equality, ethnicity, physical ability, LBGTQA+, and general diversity. Additionally, an index of objective and publicly available
diversity KPIs were considered.
“A diverse and inclusive environment is exceptionally important for how Eastman will continue to innovate and deliver on our strategy. Eastman is a 100-year-old company and we’ll be here for another hundred years by continuing to focus on growing a powerfully diverse workforce with increasingly diverse talents, perspectives and experiences that bring the best ideas to the table. We’re exceptionally proud to be recognised by Forbes and Statista, as a Best Employer for Diversity for 2020,” Mark Costa, Eastman’s board chair and CEO said in a press release.
