Perfect news for the ending of 2016 – Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index, which measures various factors and rates companies based on how LGBT-friendly their benefits and employment policies are, showed that more than 500 important companies (including Apple Inc., General Motors Co., and Wal-Mart Stores Inc.) have a perfect record of supporting their LGBT employees!

You can check out full report right here (it’s a bit big and long and in PDF format). “If we go back to the early 1990s, that’s when we start to see corporations starting to listen more and have conversations internally related to LGBT issues,” Lee Badgett, an economics professor at the University of Massachusetts, explained earlier this year. “Businesses were the first institutions to recognize same-sex couples, it just took them a while to see that as also being relevant for public policy, not just internal policy.”
