We are proud to be disability inclusive and recognized as a 2019 “Best Place to Work” by the Disability Equality Index for the fourth year in a row! The Index is a joint initiative between Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities. It serves as the nation’s most comprehensive annual benchmarking tool allowing America’s leading corporations to self-report their disability policies and practices.
We are also honored to be part of the 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI). Companies are only included in the index if they demonstrate a commitment to supporting gender equality through policy development, representation, and transparency. The 2019 GEI included firms from 10 sectors headquartered across 36 countries and regions. Collectively, these firms have a combined market capitalization of $9 trillion USD and employ more than 15 million people — including 7 million women — around the world.
For the sixth year in a row, we scored a perfect 100 on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The CEI addresses topics such as equal opportunity at all levels and in all functions; equal benefits for same-sex and different-sex couples; the presence of an LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group; and the frequency of external engagement with the LGBTQ+ community.
