Back Next 21 of 50


For nine years, Cummins has been ranked on our list. The company has strong supplier diversity, employee resource groups and diversity councils.

The company’s supplier-diversity initiatives include linking procurement compensation to supplier-diversity goals, in addition to working with businesses owned by minorities, women and members of the LGBT community.

Cummins’ employee resource groups are available to all employees, including hourly workers. This includes groups for employees with less than five years’ tenure and members of Gen Y. The groups are used for recruitment, on-boarding, talent development, diversity training and mentoring.
Diversity councils at Cummins are typically plant- or building-based, and the councils participate in various activities around the country.

For example, the council in Columbus, Ind., sponsors a Diversity Olympiad. Employees spend an afternoon at a city park playing games designed to increase their awareness of a particular culture or ethnicity.

The company also has a strong philanthropic history and organizes Community Involvement Teams at each of its sites. They provide volunteer opportunities with local nonprofits for employees.
