Boston – Jan. 21, 2020 – Bain & Company and its sister organization, The Bridgespan Group, have been recognized as two of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality” by Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC), earning a perfect score on the organization’s annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the 14th consecutive year. Additionally, Bain & Company has been recognized by HRC as one of “Mexico’s Best Places to Work for LGBTQ people,” earning a perfect score in the Equidad MX Index for the second year in a row.
“We are proud to be a leader in this space,” said Ivan Hindshaw, Regional Managing Partner of the Bain & Company’s practice in the Americas. “Each year, as HRC sets its standards, Bain takes the opportunity to reassess our own policies and think about how we can stay materially ahead of that benchmark. We don’t simply want to comply with the standard, we aspire to lead.”
Diversity is a strategic priority for Bain & Company, contributing to more breakthrough client results and more fulfilling, rewarding experiences for employees. The firm is dedicated to building and supporting creative teams comprised of diverse skillsets, backgrounds, identities and perspectives, and it recognizes that supporting LGBTQ team members in the workplace is imperative to attracting and retaining the best global talent.
This philosophy has helped Bain & Company earn recognition around the world as a great place to work. The firm was named as the #2 Company in Glassdoor’s annual “Best Places to Work” list in 2019 and has consistently placed in the top 4 since the ranking’s inception. Among its many awards, Bain has recently been ranked a “Best Workplace for Diversity in 2019” by Fortune, ranked in the Top 10 “100 Best Companies” by Working Mother, a “Top 100 Best Places to Work for Generation Z in 2019” by Mogul, and a Vault Top Rated Company of 2019.
