PNC Named Employer of the Year by Disability:IN

PNC has been recognized by Disability:IN® as the 2019 Employer of the Year for its "exemplary policies, strategies and initiatives that have resulted in measurable progress in the areas of disability inclusiveness in the workplace, marketplace and supply chain."

"As part of PNC’s Talent-Focused Culture, our approach to accessibility touches every part of our business," said Vicki Henn, chief human resources officer. "We have doubled down on our efforts, with a company-wide strategy focused on hiring people with disabilities, safe and inclusive customer and employee experiences, enhanced accommodations processes and barrier-free technology."

Disability:IN, formerly known as the U.S. Business Leadership Network, is the leading nonprofit resource for business disability inclusion worldwide. Partnering with more than 185 corporations, Disability:IN expands opportunities for people with disabilities across enterprises.

While accepting the award this week at Disability:IN’s annual conference, Vicki congratulated everyone at PNC whose hard work made the award possible.
