Henkel, a global developer of adhesives, sealants, and functional coatings, has been recognized as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2024 by Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group.
America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity were selected based on a survey of over 220,000 individuals and reviews from over 1.5 million companies in North America, and the ranking considers key factors such as work-life balance, compensation and benefits, training and career progression, sustainability and awareness, corporate culture, and proactive management of a diverse workforce.
“Henkel is honored to be chosen among America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity in 2024,” said Valeria Gladsztein, head of Regional Human Resources, North America. “Our people are the key to accelerating innovation, sustainability, and corporate responsibility within the Henkel organization. To continue building on these initiatives, we focus on fostering a culture of trust and belonging, empowering employees to embrace their unique identities, and collaborating in strong, diverse teams to make an impact.”
By providing resources for ongoing career development and supporting a variety of programs designed to connect employees with each other and with local communities, Henkel works to create an environment where employees are supported, heard, and encouraged to excel.
For example, a network of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) represents nine affinity groups including the Henkel Women’s Network, PRIDE at Henkel, the Henkel Black Alliance, the Asian American Professional Association, and more. Twenty chapters with more than 2,000 members work with the organization to give voice to multiple cultures and experiences, provide perspectives and advice, generate dialogue, and build community inside and outside of Henkel.
“Diversity is a widely discussed topic — and it remains a crucial factor as people look for an employer or a business partner,” said Nancy Cooper, global editor-in-chief of Newsweek. “Newsweek and market-data research firm Plant-A Insights are proud to introduce ‘America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2024,’ highlighting companies that are committed to offering diverse and inclusive work environment.”
