(NYSE:IRM), the global leader in storage and information management services, today announced that John “JT” Tomovcsik has been named to the OUTstanding LGBT Leading Ally Executive list. Tomovcsik, executive vice president and general manager for Records Management, North America at Iron Mountain, was recognized for his support of and efforts to improve the working environment for LGBT people in the workplace.
Tomovcsik has personally sponsored and led efforts at Iron Mountain to support and embrace LGBT employees and causes. As a member of Iron Mountain’s senior leadership team, he serves as the co-executive sponsor for the company’s LGBT employee resource group, which launched in 2015 and has 140+ members committed to supporting an inclusive culture where LGBT employees and their allies can feel valued, connected and safe to be their true selves. Tomovcsik also has played a leading role in promoting Iron Mountain’s advocacy and support for its LGBT employee population, including extending health plan coverage for gender reassignment surgery, company participation in four Pride Parades, company-wide support of LGBT National Coming Out Day, and joining business coalitions advocating LGBT equality.
“I’m honored to be recognized as an ally for Iron Mountain’s commitment to LGBT equality for our employees and the communities where we live and work,” said Tomovcsik. “In my career, I have always strived to build a culture and teams where every employee can prosper. When employees feel comfortable being themselves in their work environment, they are more energized, engaged and productive, and more likely to stay and grow within our company. And that, in turn, supports the growth and success of our business.”
All of the 2016 Leading role models were nominated by peers and colleagues, with those nominations then reviewed by OUTstanding’s judging panel consisting of LGBT+ advocates from the world of business, academics and journalism. Each nominee was scored on the seniority and influence of their role, their impact on LGBT+ inclusion inside and outside the workplace and their business achievements.
