Forbes magazine has named CSX as one of “America’s Best Employers,” citing a commitment to employee development and diversity, combined with consistently high performance in key business areas.
“One of CSX‘s core values is ‘People Make the Difference,’ and being recognized as one of the most highly recommended employers is a true honor and testament to our collective efforts,” Michael J. Ward, CSX’s chairman and chief executive officer, said in a news release. “CSX is committed to hiring and retaining the best and brightest employees from a variety of backgrounds, and offering opportunities for competitive pay and benefits in an industry that provides critical support to our nation’s economy.”
Forbes determined its first-ever “America’s Best Employers” list based on a survey of more than 20,000 American workers at U.S. companies and divisions of multinationals, nonprofit institutions such as hospitals, and government agencies. CSX was also recently recognized as one of the “World’s Most Admired Companies” by FORTUNE magazine, as one of the G.I. Jobs’ 2015 “Top 100 Military Friendly Employers,” and as a “Best Place to Work in IT” by IDG’s Computerworld.
