According to Time Warner, “Cultivating diversity — of our content, products and people — is a business imperative for Time Warner.”
One way the company cultivates diversity is through its new OneFifty program, which the company uses to create content for its audiences. Time Warner seeks out diverse talent to keep its content new and appealing to its diverse audiences. This program links diversity and philanthropic efforts directly to the organization’s goals.
The company also has a strong commitment to veteran hiring. “One Veteran at a Time,” its military hiring mission, brought more than 4,000 veterans into its workforce, and 8.2 percent of its employees are now veterans, the company reported. In addition, the company features a veteran and military hiring page on its website to help veterans seeking employment with Time Warner. The company also has a veterans’ Employee Network, VetNet, comprised of veterans, allies and members of military families.

“Our success as a business is directly correlated to our ongoing efforts to attract diverse talent and maintain a progressive and inclusive environment where employees can thrive, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Time Warner’s diverse workplace strengthens our ability to create content that resonates with audiences across the globe.”
