Mutual Recognized for Workplace Equality
For the sixth consecutive year Mutual of Omaha has been recognized by the Kansas City Chapter of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) as a leader in workplace equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered (GLBT) associates.
The recognition is based on an annual survey of U.S. companies and how well an individual company scores on the HRC's Corporate Equality Index. This index rates companies on various workplace non-discrimination policies, diversity training, availability of equal benefits, presence of a corporate-wide diversity council, philanthropy and marketing.
As a member of the Diversity and Inclusion Action Group Andrew Rouillard, vice president of Brand Management and Advertising, represented the company at the recognition event.
"Mutual of Omaha continues to place a high value in having a talented and diverse workforce," Rouillard said. "By offering programs and benefits that meet the needs of our associates, we're able to better attract and retain talent."
Rouillard indicated we've made great strides since the formation of the Diversity and Inclusion Action Group in supporting GLBT associates. The company offers Same Sex Domestic Partner Benefits Program to its associates. Managers and associates also have access to diversity training opportunities through Managing Inclusion and Exploring Inclusion seminars.
