Symantec a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality

For the seventh year in a row, Symantec has earned a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI). A score of 100 earns us a designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.

The CEI is the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices pertaining to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. Here at Symantec, we’re focused on building a winning and inclusive culture that allows our employees to bring their whole selves to work. This recognition is an important signal to all our employees – but specifically our LGBT employees – that we are taking tangible steps toward this goal.

Additionally, we view diversity as a critical component to fostering a culture of innovation, which ultimately leads to business success. As our CEO Mike Brown says, “Every individual brings a unique perspective that inspires innovation. We’re building a culture that celebrates diversity and inclusion because it drives our success as a business, our ability to serve our customers and partners, and our strength as a team.”
