Best Companies for LGBTQ Workers

Find a job at a company that supports you.

Workplace equality is improving, but some employees, unfortunately, still face discrimination because of their sexual orientation and gender identity. Finding companies that include sexual orientation and gender identity in their non-discrimination policies is a way to identify companies that have made a public commitment to hiring more lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) employees.

But there's still a ways to go. In fact, according to a Monster survey, 56% of respondents think companies should be doing more to recruit and hire from the LGBTQ community, and nearly 20% think their current employer has a negative attitude toward LGBTQ hiring.

To right that wrong, Monster consulted the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI), which rates companies based on LGBTQ equality.

The CEI rating criteria have four key pillars in order to be considered among the best companies:

  • Workforce protections
  • Inclusive benefits
  • Supporting an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility
  • Responsible citizenship

This year, 767 businesses received a top rating of 100%. In addition, gender identity is now part of non-discrimination policies at 94% of all Fortune 500 companies, up from just 3% in 2002.

Click through the list below to see the top-rated LGBTQ-friendly companies, many of which currently have jobs on Monster.
