  • LPL Financial Receives Perfect 100 in HRC’s Corporate Equality Index

    February 11, 2020 by LPL Financial

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Jan. 27, 2020 – LPL Financial LLC, a leading retail investment advisory firm and independent broker-dealer, today announced that it received a perfect score of 100 percent in the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) workplace equality.

    “We are honored and encouraged to once again receive a perfect score on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index,” said LPL Managing Director and Chief Human Capital Officer Sallie Larsen. “As a firm, we are committed to attracting diverse talent and building an inclusive culture that encourages employees to bring their authentic selves to work. This is fundamental to who we are as a company and what we stand for. Creating a culture where everyone feels they can contribute their best work allows us to better serve our advisors and their clients and each other.​​​​​​​​​​”

    LPL – Committed to Equality

    Shannon Peele, chair of LPL’s Pride Alliance Employee Resource Group in the Carolinas, added, “I see myself in our HRC Corporate Equality 100 percent score. LPL’s commitment to equality is supported by the work we do in our local communities, our legal team’s advocacy in Washington, D.C. and the inclusive benefits package that we provide our employees. Not only is diversity and inclusion the right and moral thing to do as an Employer of Choice but a strategic and purposeful plan to set us apart from our competition. I am so grateful that I work for a company where I can bring my whole self to work.”

    CEI rating system is designed for mid-to large-sized businesses with 500 or more full-time employees, and its report measures companies on detailed criteria in five broad categories:

    • Non-discrimination policies
    • Employment benefits
    • Demonstrated organizational competency and accountability around LGBTQ diversity and inclusion
    • Public commitment to LGBTQ equality
    • Responsible citizenship

    “These companies know that protecting their LGBTQ employees and customers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do — it is also the best business decision,” HRC President Alphonso David stated. “Businesses understand their LGBTQ employees and customers deserve to be seen, valued and respected not only at work, but in every aspect of daily life.”

    The full report is available online at hrc.org/cei.
