Best companies for LGBT workers

Workplace equality is improving, but some employees, unfortunately, still face discrimination because of their sexual orientation.

Of course, from a job seeker’s perspective, there are many good reasons to seek out employers with diverse workforces, but the most important one is the way the employees are treated. Everyone should feel like their workplace is a safe space (and if that’s not the case, you definitely need to keep reading).

In its annual Corporate Equality Index, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC) recently rated companies based on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality, taking into account issues like equal benefits and non-discrimination protections. While the report found that 887 of the nation’s largest businesses demonstrated committed to LGBT equality and inclusion, 515 of those received a top rating of 100%—the majority of which are hiring on Monster right now.
