BLOOMFIELD, Conn., 07 December, 2015 - Cigna (NYSE: CI), a global health service leader, has scored among the top companies measured in the 2015 HACR Corporate Inclusion Index (HACR CII).

The HACR CII is a research initiative conducted by the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) and the HACR Research Institute. Participation in the survey helps track trends in Corporate America to measure diversity and Hispanic inclusion at Fortune 100 companies and HACR Corporate Member companies.

"The HACR CII research affirms the progress being made among leading companies to ensure diversity and Hispanic inclusion in the relationships and processes that drive business performance. The diversity of Cigna's workforce, along with a continued focus on procurement and philanthropy are essential to Cigna's mission to help the customers we serve improve their health, well-being and sense of security," said Rosanna Durruthy, Cigna's chief diversity officer.

The 2015 HACR CII report focuses on the progress that participating companies have made over the last year as well as the progress for Hispanics more generally in corporate America. A total of 128 companies received invitations to take part in the survey and 53 companies submitted surveys.

Research and analysis was led by the HACR Research Institute, under the leadership of Dr. Lisette Garcia.

"On behalf of HACR's Board of Directors, we congratulate Cigna for their commitment to Hispanic inclusion," said Dr. Lisette Garcia, senior director of the HACR Research Institute. "Forward thinking companies such as Cigna recognize the importance of using data and analytics to identify gaps which can be used to help frame strategic plans to impact change and keep up with the demands of a diverse, ever changing marketplace."
