Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE/LSE: CCL;NYSE: CUK), the world's largest cruise company, today announced it has been recognized as one of the Best Companies for Latinos to Work by Latino Leaders Magazine, the only national magazine fully dedicated to showcasing and promoting leadership in the Latino community in the U.S.
Presented by Latino Leaders Magazine, the index recognizes the top 25 U.S. companies across various industries, including manufacturing, hospitality, health, finance, and food and beverage based on opportunities such as financial stability, clear paths to career advancement and an inclusive environment. The company's inclusion marks the second year it has been recognized on the listing of best employers for Latinos.
"At Carnival Corporation, diversity is a critical part of how we operate, and we are committed to a positive and empowering corporate culture for all of our dedicated and passionate employees," said Roger Frizzell, chief communications officer for Carnival Corporation, whose U.S. brands include namesake Carnival Cruise Line, Cunard, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn. "We believe that proactively building a diverse and inclusive workforce is not only the right way to operate, but it is also a business imperative.

The listing of top employers for Latinos was developed through a detailed analysis by the magazine's research team and based on information provided by partners including the Association of Latino Professionals For America, Prospanica and Latino Corporate Directors Association, among others. The final list of honorees was selected using a number of criteria that focused on several areas of an inclusive workforce, including both internal and external outreach initiatives; career opportunities; programs to recruit, promote and retain Latinos; representation in the boardroom and C-Suite level; percentage of Hispanic employees; and community service.
