The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation has recognized Experian with a 100 percent score on their 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), earning the distinction as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality”.
The CEI is the nation’s premier benchmarking tool in evaluating corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. We are honored to have received such top marks alongside some of America’s most respectable companies.
“Our mission as a company is to create greater financial inclusion for consumers, but inclusion also means creating an open and accepting workplaces where everyone can thrive,” said Craig Boundy, chief executive officer of Experian North America. “We work hard to make diversity and inclusion a priority in our company culture, and our efforts are showing real results.”
We strive to celebrate our company’s diversity by creating an inclusive workplace environment where employees feel supported and appreciated. We’ve launched initiatives and implemented policies that have solidified our commitment to being a strong ally to the LGBTQ community. Our dedication to foster a supportive work culture for our LGBTQ employees is exemplified by such practices as:
- Our progressive benefit programs, which include transgender services and offer equal coverage to same and different-sex domestic partners and spouses.
- Our non-discrimination and equal employment policies go beyond federal requirements, ensuring equal treatment regardless of “gender identity” or “sexual orientation.”
- Our dedication to be inclusive through executive sponsorship and the Power of YOU initiative which facilitates Employee Resource Groups and Clubs.
“The top-scoring companies on this year’s CEI are not only establishing policies that affirm and include employees here in the United States, they are applying these policies to their global operations and impacting millions of people beyond our shores,” said HRC president Chad Griffin.
Practicing an inclusive work culture has always been one of our top priorities and being honored by the HRC demonstrates our dedication to that goal. We are proud to support our LQBTQ employees, along with the diverse work force that make up the Experian family.
