The Hartford Named A Best Place To Work For LGBT Equality For Second Consecutive Year

The Hartford has been recognized as a Best Place to Work for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Equality by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), an accolade it received for scoring 100 percent on the HRC's 2014 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The CEI, released each fall since 2002, 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. It is the premiere national benchmark for LGBT workplace inclusion.

“We are honored to once again be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign,” said Susan Johnson, vice president of diversity and inclusion at The Hartford. “Being named to the Corporate Equality Index demonstrates The Hartford’s commitment to workplace equality, a diverse workforce and an inclusive work environment for all of our employees.”

The Hartford has seven Employee Resource Groups that support the company’s diversity and inclusion strategy and diversity in the workforce. Each resource group is sponsored by a member of The Hartford’s executive leadership team. GLOBE (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Organization Benefiting Everyone), one of the resource groups, champions the growth and development of its members and allies by providing the enterprise with a center of expertise for LGBT awareness, networking and business practices.

The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.

The Hartford was one of 303 out of 934 companies to receive a perfect score. The policies, benefits and practices businesses must implement to earn a perfect score are best-in-class demonstrations of corporate commitments to LGBT workers.
