We’re so excited to announce today that, for the fourth year in a row, Yelp has received a perfect score on the Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and earned the designation as a 2018 Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality. The Corporate Equality Index is 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. Yelp joins the ranks of 609 major U.S. businesses which also earned top marks this year.
The 2018 CEI rated 947 businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. Yelp’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.
