Nissan Named One Of DiversityInc's Top 25 Noteworthy Companies For 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of the company's significant progress in workforce diversity, DiversityInc Magazine has named Nissan to its Top 25 Noteworthy Companies for 2014. This honor recognizes the company's advances in workforce diversity largely supported by the launch of 15 affinity groups that have given employees with a common background the opportunity to work together to accelerate progress and facilitate inclusion.

Nissan Group.

"We know that the human connection is crucial to recruiting and retaining talented employees," said Jeffrey Webster, Nissan's director of Diversity and Inclusion. "As we continue to grow the number of affinity groups at Nissan, we're giving employees more opportunities to grow as professionals and to make cross-functional relationships that foster more creativity and more deeply engage them in their day-to-day roles."

The rapid growth of these affinity groups makes them the most successful elements of Nissan's diversity strategy. Groups such as the recently launched Gay-Straight Alliance at Nissan promote a more inclusive work environment for employees and helped the brand land a perfect score in the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index in December 2013.

"Based on the growth and success of these groups, we've also started Multicultural and Women's Business Synergy Teams in other offices throughout the country," said Webster. "Not only have membership numbers dramatically increased, but employee participation within these groups has nearly doubled in the last year, outpacing the national average for the automotive industry by nearly four times."

Nissan's diversity strategy extends beyond the walls of its buildings and into the community through partnerships with other businesses and organizations. For example, Nissan works with groups such as the 100 Black Men of America and FUTURO, to offer mentoring programs that give high school and college students exposure to the variety of career opportunities available, as well as guidance on how to draft a resume and showcase strengths in interviews. In addition, Nissan regularly hosts students for job shadowing opportunities, where students get a first-hand look at the inner workings of a global company.
