- Chrysler Group is named to the top 12 companies listed on the annual Latina Style Top 50 Report
- The Report "is the most respected evaluation of corporate America's employment opportunities and policies as they pertain to Latinas"
- This was the tenth time the Company has been included in the Top 50 Report
The editors of Latina Style magazine have again selected Chrysler Group LLC for inclusion on the magazine's annual list of the 50 best companies for Hispanic women to work in the U.S. This year, Chrysler Group was included among the top 12 companies listed in the Report and will be featured in August issue of the magazine.
The Latina Style Top 50 Report highlights companies that have a dedicated effort to diverse recruitment and promotion initiatives, including companies that have programs to recruit veterans and military personnel, and is considered "the most respected evaluation of corporate America's employment opportunities and policies as they pertain to Latinas."
This was the tenth time the Company has been recognized in the Top 50 Report since the benchmark was established in 1997.
"Chrysler Group's leadership team believes strongly that our commitment to recruiting diverse talent is a source of energy and innovation that fuels our continued success," said Nancy A. Rae, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Chrysler Group LLC. "This recognition validates the strategic value of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, and contributes to our Company's growing reputation as an employer of choice for diverse talent."
Latina Style magazine began the Top 50 Report list as "a quest to explore deeper into the business world and bring forth powerful and useful information on the increasing importance of recruiting professional Latinas." In 1997, with the assistance of the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and national Hispanic organizations, the magazine developed a comprehensive survey that is sent annually to Fortune 1000 companies. The LS50 report, the result of that annual survey process, highlights each selected company's leadership programs, employee benefits and Latina representation in senior positions.
More than 800 companies are evaluated for the Report each year.
