For the sixth year in a row, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care has received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality.
The survey, which is administered by the Human Rights Campaign, evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. Harvard Pilgrim’s efforts in satisfying all of CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality. More than 1,000 businesses are ranked in the index. Harvard Pilgrim received its first 100% rating in 2006 and has had a perfect score for the last six consecutive years.
“It is a real honor to receive a 100% rating again this year on the Corporate Equality Index,” said Harvard Pilgrim’s Vice President and Chief Inclusion Officer Karen Young. “We care very deeply that our organization provides a welcoming and inclusive environment for all of our employees. We will continue to ensure that Harvard Pilgrim remains one of the top places for members of the LGBTQ community to work.”
