Mastercard Receives i4cp's Culture Renovation® Award

Beverly Kaye was also recognized and presented with the Industry Legend Award by i4cp

Seattle, WA. March 17, 2022 – The Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) presented its 2022 Culture Renovation® Award to Mastercard in recognition of the firm’s achieving, sustaining, and advancing a healthy and thriving culture. Beverly Kaye was individually recognized for her contributions in the field of human resources.

The best-selling book Culture Renovation: 18 Leadership Actions to Build an Unshakeable Company, by i4cp CEO Kevin Oakes, guides companies in planning, building, and maintaining a corporate culture that drives profits, growth, and business sustainability now and well into the future. As a data-driven company, Mastercard’s approach to measuring culture and helping stakeholders make stronger decisions exemplifies themes revealed by the i4cp research underlying the book.

Chief People Officer, Michael Fraccaro, accepted the Culture Renovation® Award on behalf of the Mastercard team at i4cp's 2022 Next Practices Now Conference. Fraccaro was instrumental in helping Mastercard establish governance, surveys, systems, programs and metrics to shape and monitor a strong and successful culture. The company measures culture quantitatively and qualitatively, creating a holistic way to provide visibility for its management and board of directors to uncover elements that sustain a healthy and vibrant culture. Further, the approach ensures the tone at the enterprise-level is aligned with organizational strategy, risk, and performance goals.

Mastercard created a Culture Health Index encompassing four components: succession planning, employer brand index, an inclusion index, and an innovation index. Within each component index, specific metrics are tracked quarterly or annually and average scores of each are taken to indicate whether results tracked above or below the target range set for each metric and the overall index. Mastercard uses its Culture Health Index to understand priorities and focal points and to aid in discussions about the allocation of capital and resources.
