CHERRY HILL, N.J., May 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank®, announced today that it ranks among the 2017 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity for the fifth year in a row, excelling at hiring, retaining and promoting women, minorities, people with disabilities, LGBT and veterans.
The DiversityInc Top 50 list has recognized the nation's top companies for diversity and inclusion management since 2001.
"TD Bank is proud to be recognized as a leader in fostering and integrating diversity and inclusion into everything we do, including our strong commitment to recruiting talented people who reflect the diverse communities and customers that we serve," said Allen Love, Chair of the Diversity Leadership Team at TD Bank.
DiversityInc also ranked TD on two specialty lists: Top Companies for Global Diversity and Top Companies for People with Disabilities. DiversityInc's annual survey yields an empirically driven ranking based on recruitment, talent development, senior leadership commitment and supplier diversity.
"There are simply not enough qualified people to hire. A company's ability to find the best and brightest, advance and retain them equitably is a decisive competitive advantage," said Luke Visconti, founder and CEO of DiversityInc. "The DiversityInc Top 50 have a decisive metrics-evidenced ability to treat people more fairly than other large companies. They also have a greater-than-average return for their shareholders."
