According to a release that landed in my inbox this morning, Time Warner Cable — which provides cable and internet services across the Carolinas — has moved up in rankings by DiversityInc:
Time Warner Cable (NYSE:TWC) today has been named to the 2010 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity® list for its demonstrated use of measurable diversity best practices and results. A total of 449 companies participated this year, up 12 percent from last year. In its second year on the list, Time Warner Cable rose 15 spots to No. 23. The company has demonstrated strength in the four areas measured – CEO Commitment, Human Capital, Corporate and Organizational Communications and Supplier Diversity.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for our commitment to diversity and inclusion,” said Glenn Britt, Chairman, President & CEO of Time Warner Cable. “We have worked hard to build a workplace that blends, and benefits from, the unique experiences and perspectives of all of our employees. That commitment is also reflected in our community outreach, supplier relationships, and in the products and services we provide to our customers.”
“The competition to be on the DiversityInc Top 50 list has grown again this year to 449 companies. In addition, the total data reflected increased diversity across all companies that competed. That means Time Warner Cable has achieved a spot on our list as competition increased and as the competitors increased their accomplishments. This takes a remarkable commitment from top leadership,” said Luke Visconti, Chief Executive Officer of DiversityInc.
To qualify for the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity, participating companies must have more than 1,000 employees and must fill out a detailed questionnaire based completely on empirical questions. The list, now in its 10th year, is metrics-driven, and companies doing business with DiversityInc receive no advantage.
“This list represents the businesses that treat diversity as an ethical, moral priority and a powerful business tool. Far too many companies are way behind the curve and will find themselves in trouble in the next few years and decade,” continued Visconti, “A diverse work force changes the character and the culture of a company. Thinking that diversity is merely a ‘feel-good’ or politically correct strategy without real impact will leave companies on the wrong side of history.”
Time Warner also boasts a perfect 100 on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index.

According to Time Warner Carolinas media director Melissa Buscher, the company will soon implement a “common digital lineup” throughout all their Carolinas markets “so that no matter where you are in the state, the programming is on the same channel.”
Logo’s common digital lineup will be on channel 325.
P.S. — Programming from Logo is also available for free in Time Warner’s Lifestyle on Demand
