Philips Earns Ultimate Score of 100 on Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Annual Assessment of LGBTQ Workplace Equality
The CEI rates hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars: non-discrimination policies across business entities, equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families, supporting an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility. Philips efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria earned a 100% ranking and the designation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
“It has been an incredible journey focused on continuous improvements based upon each year’s results to achieve CEI’s designation as a ‘Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality,’” said
Philips has taken many steps to create a work environment that reflects society, the partners it works with and the customers it serves. The most recent initiatives further ensure support for all employees, including changes to its pension hardship distribution policy to include domestic partners, launch of a vendor non-discrimination agreement, a mobility policy update to include LGBTQ colleagues and their partners and CSR giving guidelines.
“From the previously unimaginable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, to a long overdue reckoning with racial injustice, 2020 was an unprecedented year. Yet, many businesses across the nation stepped up and continued to prioritize and champion LGBTQ equality,” said
