Booz Allen Hamilton has once again achieved a 100% rating on the 2013 Corporate Equality Index and Best Places to Work Survey, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. This is the fourth consecutive year that Booz Allen has achieved a perfect rating.
The Corporate Equality Index rates large U.S. employers on their policies and practices pertinent to LGBT employees. Businesses were rated on a scale from 0 to 100, with a certain number of points awarded for meeting each criterion. Of the practices of those companies that received a perfect score, HRC says, “these are best-in-class demonstrations of corporate commitments to LGBT workers and the broader community at-large.”
Booz Allen continues to maintain an inclusive work environment by supporting various programs that champion diversity and professional development such as GLOBE, the firm’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Employees Forum, now comprised of 11 regional chapters.
