The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has released its twelfth annual 2014 Corporate Equality Index, known as “the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees.” Out of 934 businesses rated, the report gives a total of 304 of them the highest possible score for LGBT inclusion and support, awarding them the distinction of “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.”
