Abbott Earns Workplace Diversity Honor

Originally posted on Abbott.com and LinkedIn

Employee survey results rank Abbott among the 100 top U.S. employers for creating inclusive work cultures.

Diversity is ingrained in who we are at Abbott.

It’s how we innovate and how we collaborate. It’s how we think and how we are. It’s how we do what we do.

That’s why we’re proud to be among this year’s Fortune 100 Best Workplaces for Diversity, a list that reflects employers that are doing the most to create inclusive company cultures.

“Diversity and inclusion are ways of life at Abbott,” said Mary Moreland, Executive Vice President, Human Resources. “It’s in our DNA as a company and an employer. More than a century ago, Clara Abbott, our founder’s wife, was one of the first women in the U.S. to serve as a corporate director. Today we have more than 103,000 employees around the world who come from innumerable walks of life. We’re thankful to Fortune and Great Place to Work for recognizing our efforts to create a diverse and inclusive workplace culture.”

You can find our commitment to diversity and inclusion at every level of our company, from the board of directors to those tens of thousands of employees. It’s their varied ideas and insights that give Abbott the edge we need to create health technologies that can change people’s lives for the better.

“We’re always focused on reflecting the diverse customer base we serve,” said Vildan Kehr, Divisional Vice President, Global Talent Acquisition. “The diversity and inclusion efforts span everything from recruitment to development and leadership accountability. It’s how we work and how we drive innovation.”

Fortune and research partner Great Place to Work put together the annual list, which highlights U.S. companies. They base their rankings on answers employees give to survey questions about their experiences in the workplace along with diversity of a company’s leaders and workforce.
