West is proud to announce that it received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. West joins the ranks of many other major U.S. businesses which also earned top marks this year.
The 2018 CEI rated numerous businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. West’s efforts in satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria results in a 100 percent ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
West thrives because of its diverse team of talented individuals. We encourage diversity in our workplace by implementing programs and guidelines that ensure all employees and job applicants are treated fairly. Our Equal Opportunity Employment/Affirmative Action Program helps us hire the best staff to provide our customers the highest level of services and solutions.
