Huron Named ‘Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality’
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 29, 2019--Global professional services firm Huron (NASDAQ: HURN) today announced that it has been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.” Huron received a perfect score – 100 – on the HRC Foundation’s 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), which ranks employers on corporate policies, equal employment opportunities and benefits.
“Our diverse and inclusive culture is the foundation for Huron’s success, and we are proud to receive this recognition,” said James H. Roth, chief executive officer at Huron. “We are committed to fostering a culture of diversity to best support our clients with innovative and transformative solutions that help them solve their most complex business challenges.”
The CEI was created in response to limited federal protections against workplace discrimination. The report serves as the premier benchmarking tool for corporate policies that pertain to LGBTQ employees.
“Our inclusive culture is what drives our ability to attract and retain talent,” said Patty Olsen, chief human resources officer at Huron. “We are proud to receive a perfect score, but we know our work is not done as we continue to invest in our people and grow as an organization.”
