Spirit Recognized for Diversity Management Initiatives
At Spirit, we view creating a diverse workplace as not just the right thing to do, but as a business imperative. By drawing on employees’ unique backgrounds and experiences, innovation is accelerated and the business achieves greater success. Our global diversity vision for Spirit is to be an integrated, global team achieving performance excellence and competitive advantage through diversity leadership. We drive toward that goal in a number of ways, one of which is benchmarking ourselves against other companies using DiversityInc’s annual survey of corporate diversity performance.
For the fourth consecutive year, Spirit AeroSystems was named a DiversityInc Noteworthy Company, being recognized for its efforts in talent and pipeline development, leadership accountability and supplier diversity. And, for the second year in a row, Spirit was named a Top Company for Veterans, earning the #5 ranking amongst the 17 companies who were recognized. Veterans account for nearly 10 percent of Spirit’s total workforce and more than 30 percent of all management new hires.
We are honored to have been recognized by DiversityInc for our efforts to create and foster an environment where diversity not only thrives, but drives our business and industry forward.
