Why It’s on the List
In its third consecutive year on the list, Dell continues to be a leader in resource groups and in global cultural competence.
The company, which last year received our award as Top Company for Resource Groups, has global groups that are open to all employees. They are used for recruitment, talent development, on-boarding, marketing and community relationships.
Each group is asked to provide a charter of its strategy and mission. Annually, each group submits its results measured against targeted goals and objectives. The groups are asked to provide a strong value proposition for members, the business and the external community.
The resource groups have produced value-added programs such as a six-month Cross ERG Leadership Series; an internal program called Embracing the Stage to help build team members’ personal brands; Top Floor Coaching, virtual brown-bag lunches with top leaders; and networking events with members of the board of directors.
Dell also has a long history of philanthropic donations to multicultural nonprofits, including Out & Equal, the Human Rights Campaign, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, and the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility.
