LONDON, UK—FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial and industrial property insurers, has been named to “America's Best Employers for Diversity” list by Forbes. The mutual insurer is ranked number 221 out of 250 companies.

According to Forbes, “One study after another has shown that companies with more diverse teams have stronger financial performance. But without being an employee, it’s often difficult to get visibility into how seriously a company takes diversity.”

To gain those insights, 30,000 employees working for large U.S. companies and organisations were surveyed by Forbes. Respondents were asked about diversity, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age and disability. Responses from ethnic minorities, women and people aged 50 and older received greater weight. 

“FM Global is committed to attracting, developing and retaining a diverse and talented workforce and providing an environment where every employee is respected and supported,” said Angela Kelly, vice president, diversity and international human resources. “Diversity and inclusion benefits our employees and makes us stronger and more successful for our clients.”

This is the third time since 2016 that FM Global has been recognised by Forbes for its employment practices. In May 2017, Forbes ranked FM Global number 112 among “America’s Best Employers,” a climb of 163 places from the prior year’s ranking.
