MasterCard Worldwide is ranked among the top companies for diversity according to the recently announced 2009 list of Top 50 Companies for Diversity from DiversityInc. Of the 401 companies who vied for the honor, MasterCard was ranked No. 41.
This first appearance by MasterCard since its initial public offering in 2006 demonstrates the company’s increased focus on investing in human capital to drive its agility, innovation and performance in the marketplace.
As a worldwide organization that provides services in more than 210 countries and territories, MasterCard’s corporate vision to advance global commerce requires a keen understanding of the complex and ever-changing global business environment. As a result, diversity is a core enabler to deliver products and solutions that appeal to its diverse customer base and key contributor to the company’s overall business success.
MasterCard offers a number of programs and benefits that demonstrate its commitment to Diversity and Inclusion, including highly competitive benefits for same-sex partners of employees; adoption assistance; alternative workplace solutions such as teleworking and job-sharing; family medical leave; and relocation assistance. In addition, MasterCard supports five vigorous employee-resource groups, with 25 percent of employees participating in at least one of the groups. Also, earlier this year, MasterCard hosted its first MultiCultural Summit, with the goal to bring together employees from regions and business units to explore innovative ideas to drive business growth through its diversity and inclusion strategy.
