The HRC ranks U.S. companies according to their support and non-support for “gay,” lesbian, bisexual and transgender causes. The scale is from zero to 100, with those closest to zero being firms that are not supportive of homosexual policies, and those nearest 100 being very “gay”-friendly.
The criteria include anti-discrimination protections, domestic partner benefits, diversity training and transgender-inclusive benefits.
In the first year of the CEI a decade ago, 13 businesses achieved a top score of 100 percent.
Now, 190 businesses achieved a top rating of 100 percent.
While there are many additional companies promoting the LGBT agenda, here is the latest list of companies scoring a perfect 100 percent on the index:
