Swords, Ireland, September 14, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, is named one of LATINA Style Inc.’s top companies on the 2015 LATINA Style 50 Report.

Reported annually and celebrating its 18th issue, The LATINA Style 50 Report identifies corporations that provide the best career opportunities for Latinas in the United States; it is one of the most respected evaluations of corporate America’s career advancement opportunities for Latinas. LATINA Style Inc. is the publisher of LATINA Style magazine, a national magazine for the professional Hispanic woman.

“We’re delighted to receive recognition on the 2015 LATINA Style 50 Report as this honor underscores our foundational belief that each employee offers skills and experiences that make us a better company,” said Nereida (Neddy) Perez, vice president of Global Diversity and Inclusion, Talent Management at Ingersoll Rand. “We are committed to women in our industry and Ingersoll Rand’s initiatives – like our Women’s Network and Women’s Leadership Program – help develop our female employees into industry leaders who excel at innovation, business opportunities and community engagement.”

Companies are evaluated based on criteria deemed most important in the workplace by LATINA Style magazine readers including: the number of Latina executives, Latina retention, mentoring programs, educational activities, alternative work policies, employee benefits, women’s issues, job retraining, affinity groups and Hispanic relations. Evaluations for the 2015 annual report are based on 2014 data.

“Preparing the 2015 LATINA Style 50 Report is an exhausting process that takes hundreds of hours of intense research and study,” says Robert E. Bard, president and CEO of LATINA Style, Inc. “It is our goal to provide the most accurate picture of what corporate America has to offer. We need to be sure that the companies listed on the report are the ones that truly are the best places for Latina professionals to work.”

Earlier this year, Ingersoll Rand was recognized for the second consecutive year on the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List, published by Corporate Responsibility Magazine, and was honored on the Best Companies for Leaders List by Chief Executive Magazine.
