Appliance maker Whirlpool Corporation announced that it has been named one of 25 Noteworthy Companies for Diversity by DiversityInc magazine, an online source of diversity benchmarking and career advice. Whirlpool was recognized for its community philanthropy, employee-resource groups, and measurement of diversity success.

The 25 Noteworthy Companies list is part of DiversityInc's annual Top 50 Companies for Diversity survey. It is a list of honorable mentions, companies that either came close to earning spots on DiversityInc's Top 50 Companies for Diversity list, and/or demonstrated real diversity strength in at least one of the four areas, including CEO commitment, human capital, corporate communications, and supplier diversity. In DiversityInc's estimation, each of the 25 noteworthy companies has a chance at making the Top 50 list next year.

"This recognition for our diversity and inclusion initiatives is a sign that we are making progress," said Jeff Fettig, chairman, president, and CEO of Whirlpool. "We still have progress to make, but receiving an honorable mention reaffirms that we're moving in the right direction from an employee engagement and overall business perspective."

"Our ultimate goal is to become employer of choice," said Angela Roseboro, corporate director of Global Diversity, Whirlpool Corporation. "This recognition is one indication that we are making real progress in driving our diversity, inclusion and engagement strategy to ensure that we hire, develop and engage great talent."

Other companies included on the 25 Noteworthy Companies list included Comcast Co., DaimlerChrysler, Hewlett-Packard, The New York Times Co., and Starbucks Coffee Co.
