NEW YORK (August 5, 2021) – McGraw Hill today announced it has been recognized as one of the 2021 Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces®.
McGraw Hill was selected based on eight elements: Accountability & Performance, Belonging, Equity & Inclusion, Culture Alignment, Manager Empowerment, Professional & Personal Growth, Purpose & Leadership, Recognition & Rewards, and Wellbeing. A panel of 15 esteemed judges comprised of employee engagement academics, industry analysts, thought leaders, journalists, and influencers evaluated the applicants.
"We are delighted to be recognized as one of Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces," said Sheila O’Neill, Chief Culture & Talent Officer at McGraw Hill. "Our people are what make McGraw Hill a tight-knit community and a special place to work – whether participating in our award-winning mentorship program or helping foster our culture of belonging. This award demonstrates our dedication to supporting our employees’ wellbeing, especially during a difficult year."
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, McGraw Hill offered its employees flexible working arrangements, caregiver benefits and reimbursement, additional paid vacation days, mental health resources, and more. Additionally, McGraw Hill championed its employees’ commitment to equity and inclusion by forming three Employee Resource Groups in the past year: BLACK at McGraw Hill, the Women’s Leadership Initiative, and McGraw Hill PRIDE.
"The COVID-19 pandemic presented a myriad of challenges for businesses and their workforce," said Jeff Cates, CEO and president at Achievers. "But these unprecedented times also offered an opportunity for organizations to support their people. Companies that prioritized employee experience, recognition and employee voice have seen increased productivity, higher employee engagement and stronger loyalty. This year’s 50 Most Engaged winners embody what it means to be a "people-first" business and have proven how the prioritization of employee experience can help an organization withstand even the most difficult of times."
