Books-A-Million Inc. Recognized on Forbes Best Employers for Diversity 2020 List

February 10, 2020 GMT

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 10, 2020--

Books-A-Million has been recognized by Forbes Media and Statista Inc. as one of the Best Employers for Diversity in 2020. The retailer’s top 500 ranking is now live on Forbes, highlighting the company’s commitment to diversity across its entire workforce.

“It is an honor to be chosen as one of the Forbes Best Employers for Diversity,” said Vida Boyd, Vice President of Human Resources at Books-A-Million. “We are committed to a company culture that celebrates diversity and actively practices inclusion through valuing the voice and contributions of all its associates.”

Finalists were selected based on an independent survey from a representative sample of 60,000 employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. Respondents answered questions on the topics of age, gender equality, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQA+ and general diversity concerning their own employer.

This announcement is a second recent honor as last year Forbes Magazine named Books-A-Million one of America’s Best Employers. That award, also employee-driven, is determined by an anonymous survey of employees. It identifies companies that employees like to work for and would recommend to others.
