Holcim Building Envelope received the inaugural America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2023 award, recognizing the best workplaces in the U.S. that are committed to respecting and valuing a diverse workforce. The rankings are based on publicly available data, interviews with HR professionals, and an anonymous online survey of a diverse pool of employees at companies with 1,000 or more employees in the United States. Criteria for employee surveys were based on corporate culture and working environment, among others.
Holcim Building Envelope earned the maximum equality score of five stars on the list of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women, one of only 13 American companies categorized as “Industrial Products/Industrial Machinery” to receive the top score. The rankings stem from a survey of more than 37,000 female employees on criteria like compensation and benefits, work-life balance and proactive management of a diverse workforce.
“At Holcim, we are built by our people and enriched by the talent and diversity of a highly skilled workforce,” said Jamie Gentoso, President, Holcim Building Envelope. ”We draw our strength from hiring people from various backgrounds and experiences that help cultivate a culture of inclusion. Holcim is committed to creating opportunities for ALL individuals.”
Holcim Building Envelope shares the goal of Holcim, its parent company, to further increase gender inclusivity and diversity in its workforce. The 2025 target is for women to comprise at least 25% of senior management, an increase from the current 14%.
“This is a tremendous achievement for our company and our industry. We are working hard to be the model that shows there are opportunities for ALL individuals in construction and manufacturing. Regardless of your sex, race, religion, or culture, we believe that anyone can achieve success and hold leadership positions. Our differences and unique perspectives help make us better as a company and as an industry,” continued Gentoso. “The progress we’ve made in hiring and retaining women at all levels of the company proves that the mold has been broken, and my goal is that we will continue to serve as both an example and inspiration.”
