For the 11th time in 12 years, Volkswagen has been recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as one of 609 major U.S. businesses that scored a perfect 100% on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index, earning them the designation as a 2018 Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
When you have such a diverse and inclusive workspace, a lot of different ideas are brought to the table each day–that’s why Volkswagen has found itself at the forefront of innovations in the automotive industry for years, such as the automatic parking system, DSG gearbox, pump/nozzle technology, and direct injection gasoline engines.
According to Machelle Williams, VW’s Senior Director of Diversity and Corporate Social Responsibility, “The individuality of our employees leads to more productivity and better results which is why we continue to strive for a workplace that welcomes everyone.”
The 2018 Corporate Equality Index surveyed almost 1000 business in its report, which evaluates LGBTQ-related policies including domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community.
