NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), announced today that the company is one of 145 companies honored as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion” and included in the 2018 Disability Equality Index (DEI) in recognition of Voya’s commitment to prioritizing the inclusion of people with disabilities.
The DEI is a joint initiative between American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and the US Business Leadership Network (USBLN), designed by disability advocates and business leaders as the nation’s most trusted comprehensive benchmarking tool for disability inclusion. The Index measures key performance indicators across organizational culture, leadership, accessibility, employment, community engagement, support services and supplier diversity.
“We applaud those companies that choose to take the DEI year after year and truly commit to advancing disability inclusion,” said Jill Houghton, President and CEO of USBLN. “Although we are far from true inclusion of people with disabilities across the enterprise, the DEI signals corporate America is recognizing inclusion as a competitive edge and beneficial for all.”
“At Voya, we are committed to addressing the needs of our customers and employees living with disabilities — as well as their families and caregivers,” said Chairman and CEO Rodney O. Martin, Jr. “Providing products and services that enable individuals in the disabilities community to plan for the future that they envision is a business priority and an extension of our vision to be America’s Retirement Company. Our inclusion in the 2018 DEI serves as a positive proof point that our efforts are making a difference in serving the needs of the disabilities and special needs community.”
Voya’s commitment to serving the disabilities community is exemplified through its Voya Cares program which provides a platform for tailored advice and resources so that Americans living with special needs and disabilities, and their caregivers, plan for the retirement they deserve. Voya also has designed programming to support its employees with disabilities and those who are caregivers and most recently established a Disabilities and Special Needs employee resource group.
