Ecolab Again Named LGBTQ Equality “Best Place to Work for”

Ecolab Inc. received a top score of 100% on the 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), nominating it as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.”

The CEI is a tool to rate American businesses on their treatment  of gaylesbianbisexual and transgender employees, consumers and investors. It is Ecolab’s ninth consecutive year with a perfect score of 100% on the CEI, conducted by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. The company’s PRIDE employee resource group – focused on supporting the LGBTQ+ community – played an essential role in the efforts to encourage a culture of inclusion and connection.

For instance, they organized campaigns to support homeless LGBTQ+ youth and they initiated a project to educate Ecolab associates about the importance of using – and respecting – gender pronouns. The 2021 CEI evaluated LGBTQ-related policies of 1,142 U.S.-based companies, including non-discrimination policies, fair benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families, support of an inclusive culture and corporate social responsibility.
