News : CSC Recognized With Two Disability Workplace Honors
Tysons, VA, USA, July 19, 2016 -- CSC (NYSE: CSC), a global provider in IT services and solutions, announced that it is among 27 organizations selected to receive the "2016 Leading Disability Employer Seal"™ from the National Organization on Disability (NOD). CSC also received the top score of 100 on the 2016 Disability Equality Index(R) (DEI(R)), receiving the designation of "2016 DEI Best Places to Work."
"We are proud that CSC is recognized as a diverse workplace where people of all backgrounds, age, skills and experience work together to accomplish great things," said Jo Mason, CSC’s Chief Human Resource Officer. "We actively promote and advance inclusive policies and practices that lead to better employment outcomes for people with disabilities as employees, customers and suppliers. Our goal is to provide as many avenues as possible for employee engagement and success, both professionally and personally, while reflecting the dynamic industry we represent."
The NOD "Leading Disability Employer Seal" is a new effort to recognize companies that demonstrate exemplary hiring and employment practices for people with disabilities. It is awarded based on data furnished by companies in response to NOD’s Disability Employment Tracker™, a free, confidential, online assessment and benchmarking of companies’ disability inclusion programs in the following areas:
Climate and Culture
Identifying and Sourcing Talent
Tracking and Measurement, including outcomes in the past 12 months and goals for the next 12-18 months
The DEI is a joint initiative between the US Business Leadership Network(R) (USBLN(R)) and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD). The survey was completed by 83 Fortune 1000-size companies, two-thirds of these companies top the Fortune 500 list. DEI points are awarded in four major categories:
Culture & Leadership
Community Engagement & Support Services
By receiving a top score on the DEI, companies demonstrate significant business leadership, going far beyond compliance activities, driving their business success through leading disability inclusion policies and practices.
The DEI was first introduced in 2012 and piloted in 2013-2014 with 48 companies prior to the official go-live launch of the inaugural DEI in Fall 2014, which concluded in 2015.
