Hyatt is committed to the LGBT community and its allies. In fact, we were honored for the 11th consecutive year as one of the few “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality” – a result of our 100 percent rating on the 2015 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). The full 2015 CEI report is available online at www.hrc.org/cei.
We believe that for employees to succeed at work they need to be themselves. By encouraging our associates to bring their whole selves to work, they're able to provide authentic hospitality to Hyatt guests. We marked our 2014 CEI ranking with a video showcasing stories of Hyatt colleagues who feel they can bring their whole selves to work each day.
We were also the first major hotel company to offer domestic partner benefits and has included sexual orientation in our Equal Employment Opportunity policy since 2000, and gender identity since 2002. In 2012, Hyatt made a statement in support of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).
Over the years, Hyatt has worked with various LGBT organizations, including the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA), the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and Out & Equal, among others.
HyPride, an employee business resource group at Hyatt for members and supporters of the LGBT community, gives all Hyatt colleagues the opportunity to have a voice within the company and fosters a welcoming environment. Hyatt has HyPride chapters throughout the U.S., including 11 new chapters launched in 2014.
