Best 100 Companies Support Gay Equality

Without ENDA (Employment Nondiscrimination Amendment) it appears that our LGBT workforce has hit another milestone. For the first time ever all 100 firms on Fortune's Best Companies To Work For list are all companies that have non-discrimination policies that include sexual orientation. Google came in as #1! It seems that in 2008, 95 of the top 100 Best Companies to Work For had already had policies in place & by 2011 that number was up to 99. "It's been gathering strength over the 15 years that we've done the survey," stated Milton Moskowitz, a co-author of the list. Similar progress has been made in benefits for same-gender domestic partners, which are now offered by 89 of the 100 companies listed up from 70 only 5 years ago.

It's not surprising to me that the places that are ranked the best to work are also the ones that are going to respect and value their employees. Some 86% of Fortune 500 companies now have
non-discrimination policies that include sexual orientation, up from 61% in 2002. And 60% of these firms now offer health benefits for same-gender domestic partners, up from 34% a decade ago. The evolution is clearly in the direction of equality in the workplace.
