CSX Recognized For Corporate Diversity Leadership, Top Company For Veterans

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX Corporation (CSX) announced today that the company was named to DiversityInc's 25 Noteworthy Companies list, and ranked number one on the list of Top 10 Companies for Veterans.  

DiversityInc recognizes companies with demonstrated commitments to diverse hiring and business practices. The publication has recognized CSX several times in the past.

"Our commitment to diversity, inclusion, engagement and equal opportunity remains strong, and that's evident in our workforce of 32,000 people and their accomplishments," said Michael J. Ward, CSX chairman, president and chief executive officer. "Clearly, our future hinges on making sure that we are properly resourced: that we have the right locomotives, the right rail cars, the right tracks to the right markets, and most important, the right people who are up to the challenge."

The faces of CSX from the board room to the crew room reflect increasing diversity in age, gender, ethnicity, background and physical abilities. The company is inclusive in its hiring practices as well as in its supplier relationships, community outreach, management practices and leadership goals.

"On the heels of the demographically revealing 2012 presidential election, it is clear that U.S. companies are increasingly conscious of the importance of diversity," said Luke Visconti, CEO of DiversityInc. "We are very encouraged to see more companies applying for this distinction and embracing diversity more deeply than ever. We also note a continued positive correlation between achievement in diversity and overall positive stock performance."

CSX has a longstanding history of promoting inclusion and diversity. Employees are encouraged to join one of our many diversity and inclusion groups, which are employee-driven and focus on a shared interest. Nearly one in five employees is a military veteran and since 2006, G.I. Jobs has recognized CSX annually as one of the top 50 Military-Friendly Employers. In recent years, CSX has received other honors from Diversity MBA Magazine, Black MBA Magazine, the Association of Diversity Councils, CollegeGrad.com, Hispanic Business and Disability Matters. Additionally, CSX is a charter member of GettingHired.com, an organization for employers and job applicants designed to help the millions of Americans living with disabilities secure sustainable employment and flourish in their careers.

The DiversityInc 25 Noteworthy Companies is the leading assessment of diversity management in corporate America and globally, comprised of a voluntary survey that evaluates CEO commitment, human capital, corporate and organizational communications and supplier diversity. This year, 893 companies participated in the survey. The full list for 2013 can be found at www.DiversityInc.com/top50.
