The Hanover joins the ranks of more than 560 major U.S. businesses that earned top marks this year.
"We're proud to be recognized as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality," said Kathleen deCastro, executive vice president and chief human resources officer at The Hanover. "This award is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to foster an inclusive, engaging and positive work environment, in which employees are empowered, valued, and respected."
The CEI evaluated companies based on their LGBTQ-related policies and practices, including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive health care benefits, competency programs, and public engagement with the LGBTQ community.
