RACINE, Wis., Mar. 28 /CSRwire/ - For the 14th time, SC Johnson has earned a perfect score of 100 percent on the Corporate Equality Index survey and report. This honor marks SC Johnson’s 17th year of recognition on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s annual workplace equality list. The Corporate Equality Index is the nation’s leading benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) employees.
“We are honored to receive a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign for the 14th time, in recognition of our commitment to cultivating an inclusive environment that retains, attracts and inspires the very best people,” said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson.
Companies achieving a Corporate Equality Index rating of 100 percent are given the distinction of “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.” For companies to be recognized and rated highly by the HRC they must have established sexual orientation and gender identity non-discrimination protections for employees, inclusive benefits, a commitment to diversity and cultural competency, and ongoing engagement with the LGBTQ community.
