KUALA LUMPUR (Sep 26): Bhd was the sole Malaysian company to make the top 50 in the Thomson Reuters Global Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Index for 2018.

Ranked 46th on the Index, Digi was one of the three Malaysian companies to make it to the top 100 global listing.

The other two Malaysian companies listed were Nestle (Malaysia) Bhd ranked 88th, and CIMB Group Holdings Bhd, ranked 95th.

Digi was also one of the 15 Asian companies who made it to the Global D&I Index for 2018.

“We believe in providing everyone an opportunity to grow – a diverse and dynamic workforce is the way forward and we are able to learn from each other’s strengths and differences,” Digi’s Chief Human Resource Officer, Haroon Bhatti, said in a statement today.

He said he sees the recognition as an encouragement for the company to continue building an open and dynamic work culture, adding that adopting D&I strategy increases employee engagement, drives innovation and growth in the company.

Launched in 2016, the D&I Index ratings are calculated using Thomson Reuters environmental, social and governance (ESG) data, which objectively measures the relative performance of companies against factors that define diverse and inclusive workplaces.

Over 7,000 public-listed companies were ranked as measured by 24 separate metrics across four key pillars: Diversity, Inclusion, News & Controversies and People Development.

These include taking into consideration Board Gender Diversity, Women Employees, Diversity Objectives, Flexible Working Hours, Diversity and Opportunity Controversies, Employees with Disabilities, Employee Satisfaction and Career Development Processes.

At 12.03pm, DiGi gained 0.42% or 2 sen to RM4.80 with 1.12 million shares done.
