Both the Pawtucket-based toy company Hasbro and the Johnston-based property insurance firm FM Global made America’s Best Employers for Diversity 2018 rankings, a list released by Forbes on Jan. 23.

Hasbro ranked No. 136 on the list of 250; FM Global came in at No. 221.

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

That’s where the ranking comes in.

In conjunction with Statista, Forbes surveyed 30,000 employees at organizations across America, asking questions about ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, age gender and diversity. It gave increased ranking weight to responses from women, individuals aged 50 and over and from underrepresented ethnic minorities, and focused on companies with 1,000 or more workers.

Additionally, Statista studied the gender ratio of organizations’ leadership, its commitment to discussing diversity, and “the gap in diversity perceptions at a given organization,” the report adds. “For example, if women, older employees and underrepresented minorities rated an employer poorly on diversity, but everyone else rated it highly, Statista considered that a negative indicator and adjusted the score downward.”
