Thomson Reuters is ranked “best place to work for LGBT equality”

The Human Rights Campaign has awarded Thomson Reuters the top rating of 100 percent on its Corporate Equality Index 2013. This score is based on the HRC’s evaluation of fair and inclusive workplace policies across large U.S. employers. Businesses that achieve this score are recognized as “Best Places to Work for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality.”

This is the first year in which Thomson Reuters has achieved the top rating of 100 percent.  We are one of 252 companies (out of 889 evaluated) to earn this distinction. “We’re proud to be recognized by the HRC for our ongoing efforts,” said Jim Smith, CEO.  “In the global knowledge economy, diversity and inclusion are essential.”

HRCPeter Warwick, Chief People Officer of Thomson Reuters said, “Cultivating an inclusive work environment helps us attract and retain diverse talent with wide-ranging skills and industry expertise, which provides the most innovative solutions for our clients.”

This recognition is the latest proof that diversity and inclusion is becoming part of what we do every day. Our progress is attributed to the ongoing efforts of our Pride at Work employee resource group.

The need to recognize and respect differences in a meaningful way is an important driver of overall Diversity & Inclusion efforts at Thomson Reuters. Interested in a career at Thomson Reuters? Check out all of our open positions.

About the HRC’s Corporate Equality Index

Launched in 2002, the Corporate Equality Index has served as a roadmap and progress report for major U.S. businesses’ adoption of inclusive policies, practices and benefits for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees.  Since then, the CEI has become the foremost benchmark for businesses to gauge their level of LGBT workplace inclusion against competitors.
