WTW is committed to creating an inclusive work environment where everyone is heard, respected and valued. The company believes that building a diverse workforce that leverages all of its best thinking and efforts is key to sustaining its competitive advantage – today and in the future.

As a result, WTW has received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index, a foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBT+ workplace equality

Encouraging individuals to bring their whole selves to work 

WTW joins the ranks of over 840 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks for this year.

“We’re thrilled to receive another perfect CEI score. We’re committed to providing an inclusive work environment, where individuals feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work and this recognition is a testament to that. We will continue to support our LGBT+ colleagues and address the important LGBT+ issues that arise in today’s workplace,” says Alicia Speight, WTW’s Florida Market Leader. 

“When the Human Rights Campaign Foundation created the Corporate Equality Index 20 years ago, we dreamed that LGBT+ workers—from the factory floor to corporate headquarters, in big cities and small towns—could have access to the policies and benefits needed to thrive and live life authentically,” says Jay Brown, Human Rights Campaign Senior Vice President of Programs, Research & Training. 

“We are proud that the Corporate Equality Index paved the way to that reality for countless LGBT+ workers in America and abroad. But there is still more to do, which is why we are raising the bar yet again to create more equitable workplaces and a better tomorrow for LGBT+ workers everywhere. Congratulations to WTW for achieving the title of ‘best places to work for LGBT+ equality’ and working to advance inclusion in the workplace."

Helping advance LGBT+ inclusion in the workplace

The results of the 2022 CEI showcase how 1,271 U.S.-based companies are not only promoting LGBT+-friendly workplace policies in the U.S., but also for the 56% of CEI-rated companies with global operations who are helping advance the cause of LGBT+ inclusion in workplaces abroad.

WTW’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria earned a 100 percent ranking and the designation as one of the Best Places to Work for LGBT+ Equality.

In 2002, the first year of the CEI, only 13 companies achieved a top-score, demonstrating the incredible impact the CEI has had on the business world over 20 years. This year’s CEI reflects growth across every measurement category, from the adoption of inclusive non-discrimination policies, to equitable healthcare benefits for transgender employees.

The CEI rates employers providing these crucial protections to over 20 million U.S. workers and an additional 18 million abroad. Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine’s 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazine’s top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses.
