Medallia is proud to announce that we received a perfect score of 100 on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The CEI is the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. Medallia joins the ranks of over 560 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.
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. Medallia’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.
“The top-scoring companies on 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.
Medallia is fortunate to have a vibrant and global community of Employee Resource Groups that help us to create an inclusive work environment. Rocco Cervantes, one of the leaders of Q-field, Medallia’s LGBTQ+ community, said, “We are beyond thrilled to see our efforts to build a more inclusive culture at Medallia formally acknowledged by the Human Rights Campaign. This recognition extends beyond policy and process, and highlights the value and importance of inclusive community at the workplace. We have dreams of building an even more inclusive workplace, and to continue to work toward a world where companies are loved not only by their customers, but also by their employees.”
