Office Depot, Inc. has announced that it received a perfect score of 100 on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI).
The CEI is the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. This is the eighth consecutive year that Office Depot has been recognised with top marks.
“Being recognised by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality is a testament to Office Depot’s caring culture,” said Zoë Maloney, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for Office Depot, Inc. “We are truly committed to challenging ourselves to be our best, treating each other, our customers and our communities as we want to be treated.”
The 2019 CEI 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. Office Depot’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
“Time and again, leading American businesses have shown that protecting their employees and customers from discrimination isn’t just the right thing to do — it’s also good for business,” said HRC President Chad Griffin.
