According to the Disability Equality Index, four GCRI members are 2022 Best Places to Work, based on their disability inclusion.
The Disability Equality Index (DEI) is a comprehensive benchmarking tool that helps companies build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions that they can take to achieve disability inclusion and equality. Each company receives a score, on a scale of zero (0) to 100, with those earning 80 and above recognized as “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion.” GCRI members Cox Communications, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island, CVS Health, and Fidelity Investments all achieved perfect 100% scores.
Fortune 1000 companies realize environmental, social and governance factors impact their management, culture, brand and financial well-being. While many companies have identified methods to advance their disability inclusion, companies had recognized current benchmarking tools were inadequate in evaluating disability inclusion as part of their company’s diversity and inclusion, or broader, sustainability efforts.
A joint initiative of Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the DEI is an objective, reflective, forward-thinking and CONFIDENTAL disability inclusion rating tool to assist business.
