Sevita has been named by Forbes as one of “America’s Best Employers for Diversity” in 2023, marking the third consecutive year that the company has received this distinction. The recognition was presented to organizations that have demonstrated progress in reducing racial and socioeconomic inequities in their workplaces and communities.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Best Place to Work for Diversity,” said Natasha Hudspeth, Sevita’s Vice President, Talent and Chief Diversity Officer. “This award is a testament to our commitment to our core values of integrity, respect, inclusion, and growth, which are at the heart of all that we do.”

Hudspeth continued: “At Sevita, we believe diversity is a strength, and this continued recognition reaffirms our dedication to creating an environment where individuals are valued, respected, and provided equal opportunities to thrive at work and in the communities we call home. We understand that embracing diversity both enriches our culture and drives innovation, creativity, and success. This recognition further fuels our determination to continuously improve and cultivate an inclusive workplace where every team member can bring their whole self, share their unique perspective, and together, achieve remarkable growth.”

According to Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, this year’s list was compiled using survey data “from approximately 45,000 U.S. employees working for companies with a minimum of 1,000 employees.” The evaluation was based on criteria including employee opinions on current workplace diversity as well as evaluation of other, comparator employers’ diversity efforts and best practices.

This award comes on the heels of Sevita’s launch of its Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) and the expansion of its Inclusion Council, both of which are working to build a collaborative environment for Sevita employees. Sevita’s ERGs were established earlier this year with the goal of bringing employees together to connect around shared identities, experiences, and interests ranging from LGBTQIA+ team members and allies; DEIB; Veterans, Military Service Members, and Families; employees who have disabilities; and more. At the same time, Sevita’s Inclusion Council has since expanded to include seven state-based Inclusion Committees.

“Sevita and the Inclusion Council have done an amazing amount of great work over the past year to strengthen our work community and show that employees should feel seen, heard, and valued,” said Inclusion Council co-chair Jennifer Allen, program director for NeuroRestorative, a member of the Sevita family. “The creation of local level inclusion committees and various employee resource groups are just some of the projects that are fostering opportunities for employees from across the country to connect, teach, learn, and grow both personally and professionally.”

In addition to being recognized for diversity three years in a row, Sevita was also previously recognized by Forbes as one of “America’s Best Employers by State” in 2019 (then operating as The MENTOR Network).
