TI receives perfect score in Corporate Equality Index
TIs commitment to creating an inclusive workplace where all employees feel valued and engaged including gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) employees is reflected in the 2009 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), which recently gave TI a score of 100 percent, the highest score possible.
The CEI rates 583 businesses from 0 to 100 percent on their treatment of GLBT employees, consumers and investors. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation conducts the survey, now in its seventh year.
"At TI we believe that our ability to fully engage employees so they can bring all of their talents to bear in solving customers' problems is absolutely critical to our success," said Darla Whitaker, TI senior vice president and worldwide manager of Human Resources.
TI joins the ranks of 259 major U.S. businesses that earned a 100 percent rating this year. Last year, 195 companies received a perfect score. When the HRC Foundation launched the CEI in 2002, only 13 companies reached 100 percent.
