Hyatt has been named one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality” after receiving for the ninth consecutive year a 100 percent rating on the 2013 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), an annual report administered since 2002 by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which is America’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization.
The HRC’s CEI report provides an in-depth analysis and rating of large U.S. employers and their policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees.
Hyatt’s 100 percent rating includes perfect marks for the company’s protection against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, parity of health care benefits for domestic partners, diversity training, internal resources for LGBT workers, and external support for the LGBT community.
The full CEI report is available online at www.hrc.org/cei and is the premiere national benchmark for LGBT workplace inclusion.“Enhancing and sustaining a positive work experience for our associates around the world is our priority. We must be an inclusive company if we are going to attract and retain diverse associates with the talent, energy and attitude to create experience for guests that will make Hyatt their first hotel choice,” said Robb Webb, chief human resources officer, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. Hyatt was the first major hotel company to offer domestic partner benefits, including changes to bereavement policies, which created FMLA-like benefits for domestic partners not required under federal law at the time. Hyatt has also included sexual orientation in its Equal Employment Opportunity policy since 2000, and added gender identity in 2002. In summer 2012, Hyatt made a statement in support of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). Over the years, Hyatt has worked with other LGBT organizations, including the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and the Point Foundation Chicago, among others.
