NS: Gains In Workforce Diversity
“There is a concentrated outreach effort around increasing recruitment of females, especially in operations. Having women in our workforce who are successful helps, because that makes it easier for us to recruit and retain more women. It doesn’t matter where you are in a company, if you can’t look around and see people like yourself, you’re going to ask, ‘Is this the place for me?’” ~ Cindy Earhart
Executive Vice President, Administration, Norfolk Southern
Norfolk Southern recognizes that a diverse workforce is essential to long-term business success in an ever-changing marketplace. In 2014, the company hired a record number of women in operations jobs and in the Management Trainee program.
