WORCESTER, Mass., Sept. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. (NYSE: THG) announced today that John C. Roche, the company's president and chief executive officer, has joined a growing coalition of more than 750 CEOs in signing the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge, reinforcing the company's commitment to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace and to foster a culture based on trust and respect.
CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace through the individual and collective efforts of business leaders and the organizations they run. Founded in 2017, CEO Action aims to cultivate workplaces where diverse perspectives are encouraged and appreciated, and where employees are empowered to have candid, and at times complex, conversations on the topics of diversity and inclusion.
"We are proud to join forces with CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion and the hundreds of CEOs and organizations that have pledged to create workplaces that are more open, aware and accepting, and by extension, more responsive, innovative, and successful," said Roche. "As an organization, The Hanover is dedicated to delivering training and other resources that help employees at all levels to feel a sense of belonging and that they are supported as they strive to reach their full potential."
"We are determined to address biases and inequities that may exist in our own company, in our industry, and in business more broadly," Roche said. "We believe our focus on diversity and inclusion will enable us to further strengthen our unique and collaborative culture, continue to enhance employee engagement and satisfaction, and drive innovation and improved performance."
