BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Liberty Mutual Insurance is proud to announce that it has received a
rating of 100 percent on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a
national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and
practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer
(LGBTQ) workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign
Foundation. Liberty Mutual joins the ranks of 609 major U.S. businesses
that also earned top marks this year.
Diversity & Inclusion is part of every aspect of how Liberty Mutual does
business including development, customer & community engagement, talent
acquisition, workplace environment, and communication. United by our
common purpose and principles, we value the unique backgrounds and
cultures of our employees.
“Earning a CEI score of 100 is a significant milestone,” said David H.
Long, Chief Executive Officer at Liberty Mutual Insurance. “It reflects
our commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace, one that
values our employees and supports our LGBTQ and ally community. We are
extremely proud of this achievement and thankful to everyone throughout
the organization who has made it possible.”
The 2018 CEI rated 947 businesses in the report, which evaluates
LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination
workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive
health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the
LGBTQ community. Liberty Mutual’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s
criteria resulted in the 100 percent ranking and its designation as a
Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
In placing a deliberate focus on shared principles, Liberty has
developed a stronger organization with an engaged and high-performing
workforce, a loyal customer base and sustainable competitive advantage
in the marketplace.
“When I joined Liberty Mutual Insurance in 2013 to lead Liberty’s D&I
efforts, my message to employees was simple: Diversity is about all of
us and inclusion requires all of us,” said Dawn Frazier-Bohnert, SVP and
Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Liberty Mutual Insurance.
“Receiving a 100 percent rating from HRC reinforces that we’re moving in
the right direction of strengthening our inclusive environment. With the
foundational work laid, we are now using the momentum we’ve built to
move from awareness to action by applying a D&I lens at a deeper level
throughout the organization.”
