Unilever Recognized As Best Place To Work By Human Rights Campaign

For the sixth year running, Unilever has been named one of the “Best Places to Work” by Human Rights Campaign, achieving a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2014 Corporate Equality Index (“CEI.”) The CEI is used as a measure to rank U.S. companies on their treatment of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) employees, consumers and investors.

The 2014 CEI rated 934 businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBT-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBT community.

“We are proud and honored for Unilever to once again be named as a Best Place to Work for LGBT employees and achieve a 100 percent score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index for the sixth year in a row,” said Sumeet Salwan, Unilever’s Senior Vice President, Human Resources. “At Unilever, we firmly believe that diversity, agile working and performance are all inherently connected. To build a high performing organization and meet our growth ambitions, we need to foster an inclusive environment where our diverse employees can bring all of themselves to work every day. Building flexibility and inclusion drives this output-oriented culture for us.”

Unilever supports the LGBT community at work through its PRIDE Network. PRIDE (People Respecting Individuality, Diversity and Equality) is an LGBT Diversity Network open to all Unilever employees that share a common goal of endorsing respect, individuality, diversity, and equality throughout the organization.

“From the great work of our PRIDE business resource group, to the activism of Ben & Jerry’s to the benefits available for domestic partners and spouses, this recognition demonstrates our commitment to our values of equality and celebrating differences across gender, ethnicity, LGBT, generations and different working styles,” Salwan added.

Unilever joins the ranks of 303 major U.S. businesses which also earned top marks this year. For more information on the 2014 Corporate Equality Index, visit www.hrc.org/cei.
