Jan. 26 /CSRwire/ - NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - For the first time, companies competing in DiversityInc's annual "Top 50 Companies for Diversity" survey will enjoy the benefit of a free assessment of company strengths and weaknesses based on the four categories identified in the survey: Human Capital, CEO Commitment, Corporate Communications and Supplier Diversity. Results will be delivered in a report within eight weeks of completing the survey. Deadline for completing the survey is 5 p.m. EST Friday, Feb. 11, 2005.

The information requested is factual, analytical, and meaningful. We appreciate that the results are broken out into various demographic groups in a manner that is compelling, and that examples are provided of best practices" said Deborah Dagit, Executive Director, Diversity & Work Environment, Merck & Co., one of last year's winning companies.
