USAA’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion has once again been recognized by

FORTUNE ® Magazine and the Great Place to Work program in their list of the 50 Best

Workplaces for Diversity. The company jumped 23 places to No. 10 in the 2016 list, which

highlights U.S. companies doing the most to create inclusive cultures.

 

“We were very excited about the news, especially being ranked by such a reputable

organization as FORTUNE and knowing the rigor that was applied,” says Tiffanie McDonald,

USAA’s vice president for diversity and inclusion.

 

In creating the list, nearly half a million employees at companies across the country were

surveyed on issues such as perceived favoritism, the fairness of promotions and how

comfortable they feel being themselves. The results were used to develop the rankings.

 

For USAA, a diverse workforce that reflects the company’s membership and the broader

labor market makes good business sense. But McDonald notes that it’s not enough to recruit

diverse talent; their diverse perspectives must be taken into account when making business

decisions.

 

“It's about making sure that employees feel like they have a seat at the table and that they can

bring their whole self to work because we know that's when employees exert that additional

discretionary effort that allows us to stand out from the rest,” she says. “Diversity and

inclusion is the job of every one of us. It’s a part of what’s expected at USAA.”
