This marks the second time U. S. Steel received the “Best Places
to Work for Disability Inclusion” designation, which is reserved
for those companies which score 80 or higher on the index. The DEI

“Inherent in our Best for All® strategy is our commitment to a
workplace that works for all,” U. S. Steel Senior Vice President
& Chief Human Resources Officer Barry Melnkovic said.
“Succeeding with our strategy naturally requires that we support
and value the contributions of those who have disabilities and
caregivers for those with disabilities.”
The DEI measures key performance indicators across culture,
leadership, accessibility, employment practices, community
engagement, support services and supplier diversity. The company
offers inclusive policies and programs, including benefits related
to parental leave, bereavement, and long- and short-term disability
leave. The company’s SteelABILITY employee resource group has been
instrumental in raising awareness of disability-related matters
companywide and developing several of the actions U. S. Steel took
to receive a top score of 100 this year.

"There is no single best way to practice disability inclusion.
However, the companies taking the DEI share the desire to create a
workplace that fosters the concept of bringing your whole self to
the office," said Maria Town, President and CEO of AAPD. "We look
forward to working with all of the participants to help identify
meaningful ways to build upon their current practices as we
continue on the disability inclusion journey together."
