Cox Named 2021 Best Place to Work
Cox has been named a 2021 Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign, the third year in a row we’ve received the recognition.
Cox once again received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, which rates companies on areas including establishing policies protecting sexual orientation and gender identity and expression, providing inclusive medical benefits, and supporting an inclusive culture.
The recognition reflects our commitment to building and nurturing a culture of inclusion, diversity and equity.
“Building a culture that empowers people to bring their full set of talents and perspectives to work is, of course, the right thing to do — and it’s critical to achieving our purpose and business goals together,” said Vice President of Inclusion and Diversity, Tiffanie McDonald.
At Cox, we lead by example and work to bring out the best in everyone.
- We’ve been recognized nationally as a DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity, Forbes Best Employers for Diversity, Forbes Best Employers for Women and Disability Equality Index’s Best Places to Work.
- Cox supports eight Employee Resource Groups across our businesses, including PRIDE for LGBTQ+ employees and allies, through which members can access professional development opportunities and participate in community outreach.
- Through our enterprisewide volunteer policy, we empower employees to donate their time to organizations that matter to them.
- Cox encourages the use of qualified minority-owned (MBE), women-owned (WBE) and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) businesses in our company-wide purchasing process.
“From the previously unimaginable impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, to a long overdue reckoning with racial injustice, 2020 was an unprecedented year. Yet, many businesses across the nation stepped up and continued to prioritize and champion LGBTQ equality,” said Alphonso David, Human Rights Campaign President. “Thank you to the companies that understand protecting their LGBTQ employees and consumers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do—but the best business decision.”
