CSX earns top veteran-hiring honors for second-consecutive year


CSX Corp. yesterday announced it's ranked No. 1 on DiversityInc's Top 10 Companies for Veterans list for the second straight year.

An information resource, DiversityInc recognizes companies that demonstrate a commitment to diverse hiring and business practices. The Veterans list showcases companies with strong diversity-management initiatives that are producing the best results in recruiting and promoting veterans, CSX officials said in a press release.

"Diversity, engagement and inclusion are essential to achieving our business objectives," said Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Ward. "We're proud to create an environment that attracts, develops and retains the best and brightest talent – including those with the invaluable experience of serving our country."

Nearly one in five CSX employees are veterans. Since 2006, the Class I has been recognized annually by G.I. Jobs as one of the top 50 military-friendly employers.

The annual DiversityInc rankings are considered a leading assessment of diversity management in corporate America. Rankings are based on a voluntary survey that evaluates CEO commitment, human capital, corporate and organizational communications, and supplier diversity. The Top 10 Companies for Veterans list also includes Rockwell Collins at No. 2, Southern Co. at No. 3, Booz Allen Hamilton at No. 4 and Hilton Worldwide at No. 5.
