Travelport’s Human Rights Policies are Rock Solid
Travelport has become the first travel company to achieve a 100% rating in the sixth annual American Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Annual Corporate Equality Index.
The index rates employers on their treatment and protection of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees, consumers and investors.
Ratings are based on factors like non-discrimination policies, diversity training and benefits for domestic partners and transgender employees.
Jeff Clarke, president and CEO of Travelport, said: "As we continue to expand our business operations globally, this milestone represents out commitment to promoting equal opportunities within Travelport that reflect the diverse marketplace in which we are competing."
"More importantly, these employers understand that embracing LGBT constituency will ultimately increase their ability to compete in the global marketplace."
