HRC Ranks Moody’s Top Place to Work

Posted on: December 16, 2012

Each year, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) releases its Corporate Equality Index (CEI), which ranks corporations for treating all employees equally, regardless of gender, perceived gender, or sexuality. Moody’s Corporation received a perfect 100 percent ranking, which is the highest possible score given.


Because of its high score, Moody’s has also been listed as one of the “Best Places to Work” for LGBT equality. Moody’s will join a handful of other corporations endowed with this high honor by the HRC.


“Moody’s is honored to have received a top ranking from the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index, in recognition of our strong commitment to fostering a diverse workplace that recognizes and values the contributions of all our employees equally,” announced Moody’s Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Lisa Westlake.


The HRC determines its rankings based on a number of policies and practices like equal employment benefits, inclusive policies, corporate and leadership commitment to LGBT issues, and more. Moody’s Corporation, with it’s CEO Ray McDaniel, scored high in every ranking.  A total of 889 companies were ranked this year by the HRC, which is the largest civil rights organization for LGBT equality in the United States.


Moody’s diversity policy emphasizes their devotion to equality within the workplace. “Moody’s takes pride in maintaining a balanced and diverse workforce and actively seeks out people who enrich our talent pool,” their website reads. “Moody’s is committed to being an employer of choices and a big part of that is ensuring that we have a culture of inclusion where all employees have an opportunity to grow and develop personally and professionally.”
