VERMEG, the banking and insurance software solutions leader, is proud to announce it has received a top mark on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The CEI is recognized as the premier benchmarking survey and report in the United States and abroad on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, and is administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation.
VERMEG joins the ranks of over 560 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.
“The top-scoring companies of this year’s CEI are not only establishing policies that affirm and include employees here in the United States, they are applying these policies to their global operations and impacting millions of people beyond our shores,” said HRC President Chad Griffin.
Badreddine Ouali, Executive Chairman of VERMEG, stated, “We are very proud to be one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality, as inclusion is the pillar of our equal Employment Opportunities strategy and employee well-being. Vermeg Group’s CSR commitment, which has been embedded in the company’s DNA since its foundation.”
The 2019 CEI 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.
VERMEG’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
