CSX was named to DiversityInc's 25 Noteworthy Companies list and ranked number one on the list of Top 10 Companies for Veterans.
DiversityInc recognizes companies with demonstrated commitments to diverse hiring and business practices. The publication has recognized CSX several times in the past.
“Our commitment to diversity, inclusion, engagement and equal opportunity remains strong and that’s evident in our workforce of 32,000 people and their accomplishments,” said Michael Ward, CSX chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Clearly, our future hinges on making sure that we are properly resourced: that we have the right locomotives, the right rail cars, the right tracks to the right markets and most important, the right people who are up to the challenge.”
Nearly one in five employees at CSX is a military veteran and since 2006, G.I. Jobs has recognized CSX annually as one of the top 50 Military-Friendly Employers. Additionally, CSX is a charter member of GettingHired.com, an organization for employers and job applicants designed to help the millions of Americans living with disabilities secure sustainable employment and flourish in their careers.
