New York, November 26, 2012 - For the tenth consecutive year, MetLife, Inc. has received a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) 2013 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The HRC’s Corporate Equality Index report provides an in-depth analysis and rating of large U.S. employers and their policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees.

“MetLife is proud to have again achieved a 100 percent rating on the Corporate Equality Index”, said Elizabeth Nieto, Global Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer. “At MetLife, we are committed to supporting our LGBT employees and fostering a culture of inclusion that recognizes and respects all of our workforce.”

This year, a total of 889 businesses were rated in the 2013 CEI, including the entire Fortune 500. To achieve a perfect score, companies must have equal employment opportunity policies, offer inclusive employment benefits, demonstrate organizational LGBT competency and ongoing commitment to LGBT-specific public engagement.
