WATERTOWN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 6, 2017--
Horizons Family Solutions (NYSE: BFAM) has been named one of the 2017
Best Workplaces for Diversity by FORTUNE. The ranking considered
more than 440,000 employee surveys from organizations in a wide range of
industries across the U.S. Bright
Horizons is the only child care organization on the list.
“From classrooms to staff rooms to our company offices, we have always
believed that every workplace is better when it is made up of people
from many cultures, backgrounds, and experiences, and that celebrating
our diversity makes us a stronger organization,” said Bright Horizons
CEO David Lissy, who also chairs Bright Horizons Diversity and Inclusion
Council. “Teaching children in their earliest years to respect and
celebrate everyone, treating each other with dignity, supporting
families and employers with the resources to do the same, is all at the
core of what we do at Bright Horizons.”
Bright Horizons demonstrates its commitment to maintaining a diverse
community in a number of ways, including the CEO-chaired Diversity and
Inclusion Council, as well as holding managers accountable for creating
and sustaining an inclusive environment.
In November, Bright Horizons received a perfect score of 100 percent on
the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2018
Corporate Equality Index, a national benchmarking survey and report
on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality.
Great Place to Work®, the organization that administers the
survey for FORTUNE evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’
experience on the job. These included professional development,
behaviors linked to innovation, leadership confidence and consistent
treatment among employees of different backgrounds. The ranking also
accounted for the share of women, people of color, Baby Boomers and LGBT
