Whirlpool Celebrates Perfect Score On 2013 Equality Index

December 20, 2013

Whirlpool Corporation received a score of 100 from the Human Rights Campaign on the 2013 U.S. Corporate Equality Index. This marks the tenth consecutive year that Whirlpool has attained a perfect score on the index. The Corporate Equality Index rates American workplaces on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Equality.

"Whirlpool Corporation believes supporting diversity and inclusion is the right thing for businesses to do for their employees,” said Jeff Fettig, chairman and CEO of Whirlpool Corporation. "We believe our efforts, through policy changes and corporate culture, are just a small part of a bigger movement. We're extremely proud to be among the index's top companies for another year and believe everyone should have a workplace where they feel fully included for their unique identity. This latest achievement shows us we continue to offer a workplace environment our employees can be proud of."

In 2002, Whirlpool instituted domestic partner benefits and recently introduced benefits to support transgender employees. The company has also implemented LGBT equality diversity training to employees across the U.S., has maintained a track record of supporting LGBT workplace equality at both the state and federal levels of government and is the first appliance brand to feature same-sex couple families in national appliance ads.
