MILWAUKEE, Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) has been recognized for a perfect score of 100 percent for the third year in a row in the Corporate Equality Index (CEI). CEI is a national benchmarking survey focused on corporate policies and practices awarded by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
"Putting thousands of people to work every year is only possible because we embrace diversity of thought, culture and background," said Chris Rowland, ManpowerGroup's global diversity officer. "Our purpose to provide meaningful and sustainable employment starts with inclusion policies and people practices. We're proud to be recognized as a leading employer for LGBTQ equality so all people have the opportunity to develop successful careers. This is what we mean when we say that we're doing well by doing good."
The 2018 CEI rated 945 businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. ManpowerGroup scored 100 percent in all of CEI's criteria and is named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality for the third year in a row.
