Giant earns top marks in equality index

Giant Food Stores announced last week that it has received a perfect score of 100 on the 2019 Corporate Equality Index, the nation’s premier benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

Giant joins the ranks of more than 560 major U.S. businesses that also earned top marks this year.

“Giant has a longstanding commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive environment in which our associates and customers are treated fairly and with respect at all times,” said Matt Lutcavage, vice president of human resources at Giant. “As a champion for equality in the workplace, it’s an honor to be recognized by the HRC Foundation.”

The index evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community.
