BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Sept. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Kellogg Company has once again been named among the "Best Companies for Diversity Practices" in 2012 by Hispanic Business magazine. The recognition reflects the company's ongoing commitment to modeling and embracing diversity and inclusion.
"Kellogg has a very involved and engaged employee resource group for Latinos that plays an important role in shaping our marketing to consumers as well as our recruiting and retention efforts," said John Bryant, Kellogg President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to promote the growth of all of our employee resource groups, which are a tremendous asset to our employees and our business."
Kellogg and other companies identified as among the "Best" by Hispanic Business were evaluated on how embedded diversity is in their board leadership and personnel; recruitment, retention and promotion; marketing and community outreach; and supplier diversity.
"We are incredibly proud and honored to once again be recognized by Hispanic Business, but we're also mindful that we must continue to earn these accolades every day across our business and within our teams," said Mark King, chief diversity officer for Kellogg Company. "We have great momentum and have made significant strides in nurturing a richly diverse and inclusive culture, but there's always more to do on this journey."
Hispanic Business started publishing its "Best of" list in 2005, and Kellogg has been on the list every year since. For more information, visit www.hispanicbusiness.com.
