MEMPHIS, Tenn., December 6, 2018—FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) announced today that Fortune Magazine has, once again, recognized the company as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Diversity. Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Diversity list focuses on the experiences of women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and employees who are Boomers or older, as well as those with disabilities. Rankings were based on what these employees reported in a survey about the trust, pride and camaraderie they experience in the workplace, and how those experiences compare to their colleagues’ reports of the same workplaces. Also considered were employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values, and the effectiveness of their leaders, to ensure they’re consistently experienced, as well.
