“We believe in providing everyone an opportunity to grow – a diverse and dynamic workforce is the way forward and we are able to learn from each other’s strengths and differences,’ he said.

Launched in 2016, the D&I Index ratings are calculated using Thomson Reuters environmental, social and governance (ESG) data, which transparently and objectively measures the relative performance of companies against factors that define diverse and inclusive workplaces.

Over 7,000 public-listed companies were ranked as measured by 24 separate metrics across four key pillars: Diversity, Inclusion, News & Controversies and People Development. These include taking into consideration Board Gender Diversity, Women Employees, Diversity Objectives, Flexible Working Hours, Diversity and Opportunity Controversies, Employees with Disabilities, Employee Satisfaction and Career Development Processes.

The data utilised is gathered from publicly available information sources and is collected manually to ensure that all information is standardised, comparable and reliable. All ESG data collected is quality controlled and then verified in a rigorous process by Thomson Reuters’ analysts and automated checks.
