Thomson Reuters earns perfect score on HRC’s 2015 Corporate Equality Index

For the third consecutive year, Thomson Reuters earned a perfect 100% score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index, a benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality.

Thomson Reuters has announced that for the third consecutive year, it earned a perfect 100 percent score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) workplace equality.

As a result, Thomson Reuters also is recognized among the 2015 Best Places to Work.

Now in its 13th year, the CEI evaluates US businesses on their LGBT-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBT community.

“As a business, we support the essential mechanisms that power our legal system, businesses and society to promote a more transparent, inclusive, fair and ethical world, and we can only do so when we foster a diverse and inclusive workplace,” said Patsy Doerr, global head of corporate responsibility and inclusion for Thomson Reuters. “To put it plainly, we’re committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace because this aligns with our values, enables us to attract and retain top talent, and drive competitive advantage.”

Thomson Reuters ranks among 364 US businesses honored with a top score, and one of 972 businesses cited in the report.

It is worth highlighting that the report only looks at businesses in their performances within the US, even if these businesses have out-of-the-US offices, such as in the Philippines.
