ManpowerGroup Scores Top Marks for LGBT Workplace Equality
MILWAUKEE, Dec. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) has received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2017 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality. This is the second consecutive year the company has received a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
"We are proud to have our leading approach to diversity recognized with a Best Place to Work designation from the Human Rights Campaign," said Christopher Rowland, Global Diversity Officer, ManpowerGroup. "Doing well by doing good has been in our DNA for nearly 70 years and we make it our priority to enable all individuals to participate in the workplace and achieve their potential. We do this not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes business sense – organizations with inclusive cultures have higher customer satisfaction, greater productivity and higher profitability than those that are not inclusive."
The 2017 CEI rated 1,043 businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBT-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBT community. ManpowerGroup's efforts in satisfying all of the CEI's criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.
