For a fifth consecutive year, Thompson Coburn has earned a perfect score of 100 points in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index and Best Places to Work Survey. The survey is conducted by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, which this year evaluated 734 businesses across the country on their treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees, consumers/clients, and investors.
Thompson Coburn was one of 304 major businesses nationwide to achieve a perfect score in the 2014 list. Across the legal industry, 81 law firms earned a perfect score in 2013.
“The policies, benefits and practices businesses must implement to earn a perfect score are best-in-class demonstrations of corporate commitments to LGBT workers,” the Human Rights Campaign Foundation wrote in a press release announcing this year’s survey results.
The Best Places to Work Survey rates organizations on a 1-100 scale and examines the degree to which companies protect employees from employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It also evaluates how well they implement effective policies on diversity and inclusion, training, health care and domestic partnership benefits. This year’s survey discovered that 91 percent of Fortune 500 companies provide explicit protections on the basis of sexual orientation and 61 percent on the basis of gender identity, a historic high.
Thompson Coburn's score of 100 in the survey underscores our firm’s commitment to a diverse and inclusive culture.
