Salesforce is honored and humbled to be recognized today with two awards focused on diversity and equality. The company has been named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality by Human Rights Campaign, and we’ve been announced as one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity by Forbes.
For the Forbes honor, the publication partnered with market research firm Statista to highlight America’s best employers for diversity. According to Forbes: “The Best Employers for Diversity have been identified in an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 60,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people in their U.S. operations. The survey was conducted using an online access panel, providing a representative sample of the U.S. workforce.”
Meanwhile, the HRC Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index has become a recognized benchmarking tool for U.S. businesses in evaluating LGBTQ equality in the workplace. According to HRC’s leaders: “The HRC Foundation is committed to keeping the criteria for the CEI rigorous, fair and transparent by identifying emerging best practices that improve the experiences of LGBTQ employees of participating businesses. Equally important, we are committed to providing the resources and consultation that enable each business to attain a 100 percent rating.”
While we’re honored to be recognized, we also know that there is much more work to be done on the path to Equality. Equality is one of Salesforce’s core values, and we have a Chief Equality Officer who reports directly to our Co-CEO as well as a team dedicated to this mission, partnering across the company to drive change.
