Company recognized as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation
WORCESTER, Mass., Jan. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. (NYSE: THG) today announced it was again named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation.
The Hanover earned a perfect score of 100% on the foundation's 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality. The Hanover joins the ranks of more than 680 major U.S. businesses that earned top marks this year.
"It is an honor to be recognized as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality for the third consecutive year," said Denise M. Lowsley, chief human resources officer at The Hanover. "We strive to create an inclusive and diverse work environment where our employees are empowered to be their authentic selves and offer their unique perspectives. This award is a reflection of that ongoing commitment and we are proud to have our efforts recognized by the Human Rights Campaign."
The CEI evaluated companies based on their LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBTQ community.
"The impact of the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index over its 18-year history is profound. In this time, the corporate community has worked with us to adopt LGBTQ-inclusive policies, practices and benefits, establishing the Corporate Equality Index as a primary driving force for LGBTQ workplace inclusion in America and across the globe," said Alphonso David, president of the Human Rights Campaign. "These companies know that protecting their LGBTQ employees and customers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do -- it is also the best business decision."
