Cummins Inc. has been named one of the top 50 companies for diversity by DiversityInc for the eighth consecutive year.
Columbus-based Cummins, which ranks 15th in the 2014 annual list, was selected from more than 1,200 companies that participated.
“Diversity gives Cummins a competitive advantage in producing the best products with the best people from all over the world,” said Kelley Creveling, executive director — global diversity and right environment at Cummins, in a statement posted Thursday on the company’s website.
“We’re fortunate to have exceptional commitment from our leaders and employees overall, and that shows in our ranking,” Creveling said.
The ranking is based on four areas of diversity management: talent pipeline, equitable talent development, CEO/leadership commitment and supplier diversity.
