Capgemini America Named ‘Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality’ by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation

02 Apr 2019

In the 2019 Corporate Equality Index survey, Capgemini achieved a perfect score for its LGBTQ workplace equality practices.

Capgemini America is proud to be named a “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality,” and received a perfect score on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) developed by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC). The annual, national benchmarking survey and report rates companies on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality.

The report recognized our LGBTQA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Allies and others)-related policies and practices, including our Transgender inclusive health benefits. Efforts made by OUTfront were also cited, Capgemini’s LGBTQA+ employee resource group (ERG) that provides a forum for education and awareness to support the professional growth of LGBTQA+ individuals and foster a safe environment within Capgemini North America.

Since its launch in 2007, OUTfront has become an integral part of our employee engagement, client intimacy, community service and high-impact team development. For example, OUTfront Burbank has raised almost $30,000 in AIDS Walks initiatives in Los Angeles and employees will be walking in this year’s NYC Pride March.

Diversity and Inclusion is a central pillar of providing a welcoming workplace for everyone from any background at Capgemini. We aim to be the employer of choice for people who wish to flourish in a creative and diverse environment and are committed to LGBTQA+ workplace inclusion. As a responsible and inclusive employer, we are focused on the professional development and well-being of all our employees, with respect and value for their diversity, ensuring that business practices and facilities create the foundation for excellence.

We promote diversity through the endorsement of 11 ERGs in North America that promote diversity and inclusion, while generating business opportunities and contributing to employee development and retention. Currently, there are approximately 2,200 North American employees participating across these groups.
