Best Small and Mid-Sized Companies for Diversity

Ben Tobin

As the United States continues to become increasingly racially and ethnically diverse, some companies have prioritized diversifying their workplaces as well.

Google, Costco and Netflix are among the best large companies for diversity, according to compensation, culture and career monitoring website Comparably.

Diversity was defined as "how non-caucasian employees rate their workplace overall" for the survey, Comparably CEO Jason Nazar said. While a lot of the companies on the list are led by diverse leaders, Nazar said that an overall focus on diversity helped earn companies top marks.

There is a “consistent message from not just senior leaders, but managers at all levels that diversity is important," Nazar said.

Nazar said there has been a "renewed focus" on diversity in the past couple of years, leading to "a lot more thoughtfulness and scrutiny" when analyzing diversity within the workplace.

The lists represent the best companies for diversity, as rated by their employees on Comparably.com, and are listed in alphabetical order. Large companies are organizations with more than 500 employees. Small-to-medium companies are organizations with fewer than 500 employees.
