AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
- Chrysler Group is named to the top twelve 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"
- For the eleventh year the Company has been included in the Top 50 Report
After the evaluation of more than 800 corporations, the editors of Latina Style magazine have named Chrysler Group LLC as one of the top twelve companies for Hispanic women to work in the U.S. The ranking is part of the annual Latina Style Top 50 report. Chrysler Group and its program will be featured in the 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 eleventh time Chrysler Group has been recognized in the Top 50 Report since the benchmark was established in 1998.
"Diversity and inclusion are core elements of Chrysler Group's business strategy and vital to our efforts to develop a workforce that enables the Company to innovate and compete in a dynamic, competitive industry," said Georgette Borrego Dulworth, Director, Talent Acquisition and Diversity—Chrysler Group LLC. "This recognition is a testament to the Company's commitment to maintaining a work culture that respects and engages all people and cultures."
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.
