Intel surpassed its ‘workforce diversity’ goal set for 2015

Chip giant Intel released its 2015 Annual Diversity Report this week, revealing that the 'workforce diversity' goal which the company had set for the year was successfully achieved, and surpassed.

In its report, Intel has shared details about how it managed to achieve its workforce diversity targets set for the year 2015. In addition, the report also highlights the fact that the company has set even more ambitious goals for the coming years --- aiming at a "full representation" across its workforce by the year 2020.

According to the figures shared by Intel in its 2015 Annual Diversity Report, the company recorded a highly noteworthy 43.1 percent year-on-year increase in its rate of hiring underrepresented minorities and women in 2015; surpassing the targeted increase of 40 percent.

Intel further elaborated that the number of underrepresented minority workers was increased by 31 percent in 2015, as compared to the previous year. As a result, employees from underrepresented minorities accounted for 11.8 percent of the company's workforce in 2015.

Meanwhile, so far as the increase in the number of women hires in 2015 is concerned, Intel has revealed in its report that its women workforce saw a 5.4 percent increase year-on-year; with women comprising 24.9 percent of its workforce in 2015.
