Top 50 Free Report Card and Benchmarking Report: Snapshot vs. Roadmap

Every company that fills out the DiversityInc Top 50 survey receives a free report card. We also offer benchmarking services. Here’s the difference between the free report card and the benchmarking report.

Free Report Card

The report card is a snapshot of where you are at one moment in time; the Benchmarking report is a management tool that enhances your competitiveness in recruitment, talent development and brand reputation by giving you hundreds of comparators to set and track diversity and inclusion goals.

All participants in the DiversityInc Top 50 survey receive the free report card, an annual measurement of their performance versus the other participants (893 last year), which points out their diversity-management opportunities. The report cards were completely revamped this year to show Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in four areas: Talent Pipeline, Equitable Talent Development, CEO/Leadership Commitment and Supplier Diversity. To see a sample of the free report card, click on the thumbnail to the left.

The report card offers a valuable assessment of where your company is in its diversity journey. For most companies, that will be enough. But for companies that use diversity and inclusion to further competitiveness in recruitment, talent development, procurement and the marketplace, the full Benchmarking report is a roadmap to effectively assess comparative success.

Benchmarking Report

The Benchmarking report includes in-depth information on comparative indexes, including cross-tabs in all human-capital KPIs by race, gender and age, as well as two-year trend lines showing progress against the DiversityInc Top 50. To see a sample of the Benchmarking report, click on the thumbnail to the left.

Benchmarking results are a significant indicator of a company’s effective corporate governance. That superior governance is demonstrated by The DiversityInc Top 50 Stock Index, an example of how well run companies perform better in the market. While diversity and inclusion are not the sole factors in determining financial performance, diversity management is a critical aspect.
