Discover Recognized As A Best Place To Work For LGBT Equality

Discover Financial Services has been named as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality by the Human Rights Campaign’s Annual 2014 Corporate Equality Index. Discover earned a perfect score of 100 in the report for advancing corporate practices, policies and benefits related to LGBT employees.

“Discover’s perfect score is a testament to the value we place on having a diverse workforce and practicing inclusive behaviors,” said David Nelms, chairman and chief executive of Discover. “Leveraging our diversity and providing options and benefits that support our employees’ well-being are not only the right things to do; they are also key business drivers that set us apart from our competitors and make us a stronger organization.”

Nelms is an executive sponsor of Discover's Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Board and supported the development of the employee connection groups. PRIDE, which supports LGBT employees and allies, is one of seven employee connection groups at Discover. These grassroots groups work with Discover leadership to drive business results, foster an inclusive environment, and promote company success in the marketplace and community.

Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2014 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) provides an in-depth analysis and rating of U.S. employers and their policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. Ratings are determined by the number of criteria that are met by each company, such as employment benefits and non-discrimination policies. Businesses that achieve a rating of 100 percent in the report are recognized as “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.”

“Corporate America has long recognized the imperative of LGBT inclusion by implementing their own LGBT-friendly policies ahead of lawmakers,” said Workplace Equality Program Director Deena Fidas. “We are at the front of a new era in which major businesses are not only meeting ever-higher new bars for workplace fairness, they are exceeding them by becoming social and public policy change agents in the process. They recognize equality is not just the right thing to do, it is sound business practice.”
