The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is one of 100 companies for Diversity

By SOP newswire

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is one of 100 companies and government agencies recognized in the June/July issue of Diversity/Careers in Engineering & Information Technology magazine. NRC was identified by the readers and website visitors for its diversity strengths and as an employer of technical professionals. The survey results strongly recognized a number of NRC’s diversity attributes including: support of minorities and women, attention to work/life balance and commitment to supplier diversity.

“At the NRC, we recognize that an organization's reputation for supporting workplace diversity is an important factor in attracting minority candidates and their decisions to work here,” said James McDermott, director of Human Resources. “Equally important to retention is the organization’s reputation for hiring and cultivating diverse talent.”
Creating a culture of inclusion at the NRC is supported by headquarters and regional offices. “Diversity and equality can only be achieved by full participation,” said Luis Reyes, executive director for operations. “Focused programs like those with emphasis on diversity help make the NRC a better place to work.”

This past April, the NRC captured the top ranking among large federal agencies in the 2007 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government by the Partnership for Public Service and the American University Institute for the Study of Public Policy Implementation.
