CINCINNATI, June 12, 2024 /3BL/ - Fifth Third has been recognized as a top regional company by Fair360. A national leader in data-driven insights, Fair360’s annual evaluation recognizes U.S. employers for their excellence in promoting workplace fairness through talent strategy, supplier diversity practices and philanthropic engagement.

“Delivering an inclusive experience for employees, suppliers, communities and customers is essential to creating a future with equal access and opportunity for all to thrive,” said Stephanie A. Smith, chief inclusion officer at Fifth Third. “We strive to uphold the highest principles of inclusion and belonging in our relationships with others and create experiences that reflect the diversity of those we serve​​​. This award serves as a testament to our commitment to create an inclusive organization.”

To create the Top Regional Companies list, Fair360 assessed survey submissions from employers with at least 750 employees in the United States within the context of their industries on verified policies, practices and procedures. Fair360’s specialty lists evaluate companies on group performance, and the list cutoff takes place where there is a significant difference between the top companies and the next runner-up. The list is specific to companies with a certain geographic footprint and compiled using the same criteria to evaluate organizations as the Top 50 competition.

“This recognition showcases Fifth Third’s commitment to workplace fairness and its understanding of how an inclusive workplace improves company performance,” said Luke Visconti, founder and chairman of Fair360. “The data shows that over the long-term, companies that consistently put their employees first and have strong rack records of respecting and embracing diversity, equity and inclusion, are stronger performers and better equipped to adapt to market conditions.”
