MetLife Receives Perfect Score On 2014 Corporate Equality Index For 11th Consecutive Year

MetLife (NYSE:MET) proudly announced that it received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2014 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the 11 th consecutive year. The result places MetLife among the top 29 percent of insurance companies on the index. This national benchmarking survey and report, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, recognizes corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality.

“People don’t want to come to work and feel like they have to leave their identity at the front door,” says Frans Hijkoop, MetLife’s executive vice president and chief human resources officer.

“As a company, our success depends on having talented people with diverse ideas and experiences, and MetLife is committed to creating an inclusive workplace, where people are comfortable bringing their whole selves to work.”

MetLife’s primary non-discrimination and equal opportunity employment policy includes both sexual orientation and gender identity or expression. Employees and their domestic same- and opposite-sex partners are offered a variety of health and other benefits.

The company also has a prominent LGBT affinity group, GLAM (Gay, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transgenders and Allies at MetLife) in addition to five other employee-led diversity business resource groups, including 15 Women’s Business Networks globally, and more than 30 Local Inclusion Action Teams.

“All these employee-led groups foster diversity and inclusion practices that support MetLife’s strong commitment to creating an inclusive work environment that welcomes and supports all employees,” says Elizabeth Nieto, MetLife’s global chief diversity and inclusion officer.

In addition to supporting employees, MetLife holds quarterly training sessions for MetLife financial representatives to better serve the needs of the LGBT market. These sessions are dedicated to legislative updates, marketing initiatives, best practices and education around LGBT issues. MetLife has also played a leading role in industry conferences and thought leadership forums to educate the community on the importance of proactive planning for the LGBT market.
