Aramark Named Among 40 Best Companies for Diversity by Black Enterprise Magazine


Company Recognized for Workplace and Supplier Diversity

ARAMARK, a world leader in professional services, has been recognized as one of the “40 Best Companies for Diversity” by Black Enterprise magazine, one of the nation’s leading business publications. ARAMARK was further recognized in the top 15 companies for workforce diversity and in the top 15 companies for supplier diversity. This is the third consecutive year ARAMARK has been named to the list.

For this special report, appearing in the July 2007 issue, Black Enterprise evaluated more than 1,000 of the nation’s top companies and more than 50 leading global companies with significant U.S. operations. The companies that made the list outperformed other corporations in their peer group in four key categories: Supplier Diversity, Senior Management, Board of Directors and Employee Base.

“We are honored Black Enterprise has again recognized us for our commitment to diversity,” said Nicole Johnson-Reece, ARAMARK Vice President of Diversity. “ARAMARK understands that a mosaic of backgrounds, styles, and beliefs adds value to our workforce, our workplaces and our business partners, and we work hard to ensure that inclusiveness.”

“Being a company where the best people want to work has long been an integral part of ARAMARK’s mission,” said Lynn McKee, ARAMARK Executive Vice President of Human Resources. “ARAMARK employs 240,000 unique individuals around the world who make the company what it is and help secure our successful future.”

A key component of ARAMARK’s commitment to diversity is a comprehensive diversity strategy, called Kaleidoscope. Kaleidoscope focuses on retaining, developing and recruiting a diverse, high-performing team to meet the needs of clients and customers.

ARAMARK’s diversity efforts have been well-regarded. The company was recognized in FORTUNE magazine as one of The Diversity Network’s “2006 Top 30 Companies for Minorities,” and was named a “Top Diversity Employer” by Black Collegian magazine in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
