Diebold Nixdorf Earns Strong Marks in Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2022 Annual Corporate Equality Index

Diebold Nixdorf Earns Strong Marks in Human Rights Campaign Foundation's 2022 Annual Corporate Equality Index

Assessment based on strength of company's LGBTQ+ workplace equality measures

PR Newswire

HUDSON, Ohio, Jan. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE: DBD), has received a score of 90 out of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation's 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation's foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. Diebold Nixdorf joins the ranks of 1,271 major U.S.-based businesses that were also ranked in the 2022 CEI. The company's 90 score on its overall diversity and inclusion practices outpaces the average score of all Fortune 500 companies evaluated by the HRC.

The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:

  • Non-discrimination policies across business entities;
  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families;
  • Supporting an inclusive culture; and,
  • Corporate social responsibility.

The CEI rates employers providing these crucial protections to over 20 million U.S. workers and an additional 18 million outside of the United States. Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine's 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazine's top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses. The full report is available at www.hrc.org/cei.

Over the past several years, Diebold Nixdorf has adopted and implemented non-discriminatory policies and provided equitable healthcare and other benefits that are inclusive for all its employees. In 2020, Diebold Nixdorf established the CARE Council, an internal, cross-functional team that works to define and deliver clearly stated, measurable goals and implement them into our operating plan. Their efforts include the establishment of four employee resource groups (ERGs) -- voluntary, self-sustaining employee-led groups based on shared characteristics, social identities or life experiences. The LGBTQ+@DN group, for example, exists to further the mission and values of the CARE Council, represent the interests of LGBTQ+ employees and support our overall diversity and inclusion goals.

Beth Patrick, Diebold Nixdorf executive vice president, chief people officer, said, "The CEI ranking supports Diebold Nixdorf's goal to fully support and implement diversity into the workplace through equity and positive recognition of differences. We are excited to continue improving on this front as we drive diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives to further build upon our strong foundation of effective environmental, social and governance programs."

Jay Brown, Human Rights Campaign Senior Vice President of Programs, Research and Training, said: "When the Human Rights Campaign Foundation created the Corporate Equality Index 20 years ago, we dreamed that LGBTQ+ workers—from the factory floor to corporate headquarters, in big cities and small towns—could have access to the policies and benefits needed to thrive and live life authentically. We are proud that the Corporate Equality Index paved the way to that reality for countless LGBTQ+ workers in America and abroad. But there is still more to do, which is why we are raising the bar yet again to create more equitable workplaces and a better tomorrow for LGBTQ+ workers everywhere."
