Herbalife’s efforts to promote diversity recently earned a nod from the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR).
The advocacy-oriented HACR represents 14 national Hispanic organizations in the U.S. In partnership with the HACR Research Institute, the association invited Herbalife to participate in its annual Corporate Inclusion Index, which gauges the inclusion of Hispanics in corporate America, where they account for about 15 percent of the reported employee base.
This marks the third year Herbalife has taken part in the initiative, and the California-based company was commended for its diverse workforce and support of the Latino community. “By adopting Hispanic inclusiveness, companies such as Herbalife are cultivating a corporate culture that promotes forward thinking, which sustains their competitive edge to outpace competitors,” said Dr. Lisette Garcia, HACR’s Senior Vice President and COO.
The HACR Corporate Inclusion Index is based on a survey that explores employment, procurement, philanthropy and governance on a company-by-company basis.
