Nielsen’s Diversity & Inclusion strategy is designed to infuse diversity and inclusion into all facets of this company’s work, but it’s also flexible enough to allow them to fulfill that mission in a way that’s tailored to each of the more than 100 countries in which they operate.
The fact that this strategy is working for them are the awards the company won this year for their work on diversity. “Definitions of diversity must be market-specific in order to be effective. That’s why we focus on creating regional D&I action plans that allow for our associates to take the core principles of our strategy and adapt them to the unique needs of their markets,” the company said in a statement.
These efforts have brought the company two prestigious industry recognitions. Namely, Nielsen was ranked No. 19 on the Inclusive Top 50 Companies in the U.K. This is the second consecutive year that Nielsen is named to this list, and this year it has jumped six places in relation to the previous year.
This achievement in the U.K. was made possible thanks to several standout efforts, including the Multinational Organization Supporting An Inclusive Culture (MOSAIC) employee resource group, which was created to celebrate the diversity within their offices, as well as the Women in Nielsen (WIN) employee resource group, which developed a mentoring program so successful and engaging that best practices from it are being exported throughout the company’s global offices.
In addition to success in the U.K., Nielsen was named the LGBT+ Supporting Employer of the Year at the inaugural NatWest Polish LGBT+ Awards. The award is a recognition of the work of PRIDE employee resource group in Poland, which has worked tirelessly to ensure LGBT+ policies and practices of the company are aligned with global best practices, and that the company’s LGBT+ associates are empowered to bring their whole selves to work.
“Nielsen’s commitment to supporting LGBT+ associates in all the markets we serve is steadfast,” said Karolina Zajdel-Pawlak, Managing Director, Nielsen Poland and Sponsor of the PRIDE ERG in Poland. “Our recognition as an LGBT+ leader in Poland is a signifier of how far we’ve come. We’re now tasked with the responsibility of being leaders in this space for our clients and communities, and continuing to drive innovation in our policies and practices to ensure they remain aligned with industry standards.”
