Air Liquide U.S. LP Named Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality
Air Liquide USA LLC received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The CEI is a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality in the United States.
For the third consecutive year, Air Liquide scored 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index, making it one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality.” Now in its 20th year, the CEI is the foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGTBQ+ workplace equality in the United States.
The CEI rates employers providing crucial protections to more than 20 million U.S. workers and an additional 18 million abroad. Companies were rated on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:
- Non-discrimination policies across business entities;
- Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families;
- Supporting an inclusive culture; and,
- Corporate social responsibility.
Satisfying all of the foundation’s criteria in these areas resulted in Air Liquide’s perfect score. In 2016, the company established the LGBTQ+ and Allies Business Resource Group, which was influential in achieving the award.
