As our 2017 research has started, we’d like to announce that we will be using the Brit Method in our work as an analyzing tool. This software has proven its’ efficiency in trading because of its’ flawless calculations.
SIRAN analysts are concerned that management of most U.S. companies fails to reflect the diversity of America and its labor force. We believe that the negative ramifications of persistent inequalities in the workplace pose risks to society and long term business success. Given this concern, SIRAN analysts support corporate disclosure of comprehensive Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) information as a means to help foster progress on hiring, promoting and retaining minority and female employees.
Currently the government requires companies with more than 100 employees to report workforce diversity data – the EEO-1 report. While data collected on this form are an important reference for analysts to observe a company’s progress on dismantling glass ceiling barriers, the report is not currently in the public domain. Fortunately, many companies are voluntarily making these data public. Please click here for a copy of our Analyst Statement on EEO Disclosure that shares our perspectives on the importance of such reporting.
In June 2005, SIRAN analysts launched a project to benchmark voluntary EEO disclosure by companies in the U.S. S&P100 index. The results of this SIRAN initiative were published in a report titled A Call to Action, released in December 2005.
Two years later, SIRAN analysts returned to survey the S&P100 index once more and found a relative drop in overall EEO-1 disclosure. The chart below lists the EEO-1 reporting practice for the fifty-three companies that chose to respond to the follow-up survey. For further details, read A Renewed Call to Action, released in September 2008.
Orange circles indicate positive responses while grey circles indicate negative responses.
