Grand Rapids, MI, Jan. 29, 2024 – Steelcase, a global design and thought leader in the world of work, has been recognized by Newsweek as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity in the Commercial Products and Office Supplies category, and as one of America’s Most Responsible Companies in the Consumer Goods industry.
Now in its second year, Newsweek’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity list recognizes large and mid-sized companies based on their acknowledgement and embracement of diversity and their measures to nurture inclusive work environments. This survey of over 220,000+ individuals included representation at over 1.5 million companies in America.
“We continue to make progress toward our commitment to do better for people by building community and belonging where everyone feels seen, heard and valued in the workplace and the world,” said Donna Flynn, vice president, global talent management for Steelcase. “We collaborate with our employees, dealers, partners and customers around the globe to build inclusive strategies, programs, places and spaces for all. While there’s more work to be done, we’re honored to be recognized for the strides we have made.”
Newsweek’s Most Responsible Companies list, now in its fifth year, ranks 600 of the top 2,000 publicly traded companies in America based on a holistic view of corporate responsibility that considers the three pillars of corporate social responsibility — Environment, Social and Governance.
As shared in its 2023 Impact Report, Steelcase is doing its best work for the places we all share by designing better futures for the wellbeing of people and the planet. It’s doing better for people by bringing equitable access to opportunity in the workplace and the world in many ways, including through its innovative social programs, inclusive design practice, investment in diverse suppliers and support of now 12 Business Inclusion Groups. It’s doing better for the planet by making, sourcing and delivering products responsibly to reduce its carbon footprint, designing for circularity, and choosing and using materials responsibly.
“Working toward a more inclusive, sustainable and resilient future has always been part of who we are,” said Beth O’Shaughnessy, senior vice president, chief administrative officer, general counsel and secretary for Steelcase. “We constantly challenge ourselves to expand the ways we can do better. This is forever work — an ongoing commitment to generously participate in the world, to create a more sustainable, inclusive and equitable global society.”
