Big Blue was under new leadership in 2020 after Arvind Krishna took over for Ginni Rometty as CEO just after the pandemic shut down IBM offices around the world. Adding some of the most rigorous safety measures, IBM has not had a single known case of workplace transmission of COVID-19. The company also offered additional weeks of paid emergency leave for employees dealing with the pandemic and backup child and elder care options. IBM also joined with the U.S. government and other researchers attacking COVID-19 and provided free access to its supercomputers. IBM also reached out to offer resources to historically Black colleges and universities, and CEO Krishna backed specific legislative recommendations for Congress to address racial justice. The company’s “dedication to diversity seems to be consistently reflected in programs and initiatives, rather than just in statements of support,” an employee said. “Actions follow words in meaningful ways.”
