COLUMBUS, Ind. -- (Business Wire)
For the eighth straight year, Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) has been awarded
a perfect score in the 2013 Corporate Equality Index by the Human Rights
Campaign (HRC) as part of its Best Places to Work initiative.
The ratings were announced today by HRC, the largest U.S. civil rights
organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees, which
has more than 1 million members and supporters across the United States.
“Cummins is honored to be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign for
the eighth straight year,” said Tom Linebarger, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer at Cummins. “Diversity is one of our core values, and
diversity means our individual differences never have to be checked at
the door. Earning a perfect score on the Corporate Equality Index is a
great affirmation of the work we do every day to create an inclusive
work environment where all employees can reach their full potential.”
The HRC’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI), introduced in 2002, provides
an in-depth analysis and rating of large U.S. employers and their
policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender
employees. Businesses are rated based on their responses to the CEI
survey. 889 employers were included in this year’s survey.
The survey rates employers on non-discrimination policies, health
insurance benefits for same sex domestic partners, availability of LGBT
employee resource groups, and diversity training. Criteria have evolved
over the years, and HRC is committed to maintaining rigorous,
transparent and achievable standards, as well as tools to help companies
meet the criteria. While its reviews are done in 2012, the rankings
apply to 2013.
