As we reflect on what we’re thankful for this season, we lead with the gratitude we have for the passion and commitment of our richly diverse Boston-area workforce. Our employees give their all every day to deliver the great products and experience we want for our customers.
At Comcast, we’ve found one of our keys to success in cultivating an engaged workforce is providing employees with opportunities to share their personal stories, best practices and development opportunities, especially through active Employee Resource Group (ERGs) supported by company leadership.
Locally, our seven ERGs are focused on women, veterans, young professionals, LGTBQ, African Americans, Latinos and those with different abilities – all of which share the common objective of building an inclusive and diverse workforce to reflect the communities we serve in Greater Boston and beyond.
Nationwide, 62% of our employees were women or people of color at the end of 2018. And, we remain committed to our goal of hiring 21,000 members of the military community by the end of 2021.
Recently, Jackie Gadsden, VP of Diversity & Inclusion for Comcast’s Greater Boston Region, received the company’s “ERG Catalyst Impact Award” for her role in growing the region’s ERGs from one to seven in three years, expanding employee participation in ERGs coupled with boosting employee engagement and overall employee satisfaction.
Earlier this month, Comcast’s Greater Boston Region (led by Tracy Pitcher, Regional SVP), was honored as one of the 2019 Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe and The Commonwealth Institute. The list is based on several factors, including the number of full-time employees in the state along with workplace and management diversity. And, Tracy will also be recognized as one of six “Women Who Mean Business” by the Boston Business Journal based in part on her work experience and community involvement.
Comcast’s workforce has received accolades locally and nationally from a wide variety of sources ranging from the Boston Business Journal to Fortune magazine. Just last night, Comcast in Greater Boston was recognized as one of the 2019 Top Places to Work in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe. Notably, this is the 11th year that Comcast has been rated a Top 25 company by the Globe.
