Mutual of Omaha Placed on Forbes Best Employers for Diversity 2022 List

OMAHA, Neb. (April 27, 2022) – Mutual of Omaha has been ranked #14 on the Forbes list of Best Employers for Diversity 2022. This is a significant move from #244 in 2021. In addition, the company is ranked in the top 3 among the insurance industry.

This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on April 26, 2022, and can currently be viewed on the Forbes website.

The Best Employers for Diversity were selected based on Statista’s innovative methodology, guaranteeing unbiased results and providing reliable insights. Over 60,000 U.S. employees were surveyed in companies with a minimum of 1,000 employees to identify The Best Employers for Diversity.

The evaluation was based on four different criteria:

  • Direct recommendations: Employees were asked to give their opinions on a series of statements regarding Age, Gender, Ethnicity, Disability, LGBTQA+ & General Diversity in their current workplace. The recommendations of women, elders and ethnic minorities were weighted higher than the non-minority groups.
  • Indirect Recommendations: Participants were also given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively with regard to diversity. Only the recommendations of minority groups were considered.
  • Diversity Among Top Executives/Board and Diversity Engagement Indicators were also part of the evaluation.

“We are honored to be among this prestigious group of employers and proud of the inclusive culture we are building at Mutual of Omaha,” said Christina Arellano, Vice President of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Mutual of Omaha. “We believe an environment where each person feels a true sense of belonging and respect is simply the right thing to do — and ultimately helps us serve our customers better.”
