Best Companies Group, in collaboration with COLOR Magazine, recognized Greenleaf Trust as an Inclusive Workplace in December 2023.

Best Companies Group, in collaboration with COLOR Magazine, is proud to announce the recognition of businesses that have demonstrated exemplary commitment to fostering inclusivity and a sense of belonging in their work environments through the Inclusive Workplace Program. This acknowledgment is not a ranking or competition, but rather a celebration of organizations that surpass our data-driven benchmarks to promote inclusivity.

The program, initiated last fall, assesses participating companies through comprehensive surveys and data analysis. Areas of evaluation include inclusion, belonging, psychological safety, community and purpose. “This program highlights the real strides companies are making in cultivating inclusive cultures that help all employees feel valued and engaged,” said Jaime Raul Zepeda, Executive Vice President of Best Companies Group.

Recipients of this recognition have shown significant commitment to ensuring all their employees feel included, heard, and valued. Their commitment to inclusive work environments has had meaningful impacts on employee engagement, retention rates and brand recognition.

President and Chief Executive Officer, Michael Odar, commented, “At Greenleaf Trust, inclusivity isn’t just a checkbox; it’s our heartbeat. Inclusivity means our teammates can bring their unique selves to work and have it seen as an asset that makes us better.”

The organizations making up this list will be celebrated in the Winter 2024 Top Inclusive Workplaces digital publication, scheduled for January 2024, and published by Best Companies Group and COLOR Magazine.
