Despite an economy languishing in high unemployment and low consumer confidence, more American companies are jumping on the bandwagon to provide support for homosexual and transgender employees.
More than 300 firms have now received perfect 100 percent scores in this fall's Corporate Equality Index, produced annually by the Human Rights Campaign which ranks businesses on their "treatment" of employees who have chosen homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgender lifestyles.
The list, which saw a 20 percent increase this year in the number of perfect scores, includes newcomers such as theater giant AMC Entertainment, Costco, Delta Air Lines, Food Lion and General Mills.
"Even in the most challenging economy, leading employers are forging ahead of federal and state law to recruit and retain a diverse workforce â€“ regardless of employees' sexual orientation and gender identity or expression," said Joe Solmonese, president of the HRC. "While Congress considers a federal law that prohibits workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, businesses can take immediate steps to ensure all employees in their workforce are treated fairly today."

Many companies, such as financial leader Morgan Stanley, are thrilled with their top ranking and use it as a public-relations tool.
"Our global top-down commitment to diversity, including LGBT diversity, ensures that each member of the Morgan Stanley family is able to bring his or her full self to the table as a valuable contributor," said company spokesman Jeffrey Siminoff, who also chairs the Pride Employee Network. "We appreciate the endorsement of our strong and unwavering commitment to our diverse employees, both in terms of another 100 percent CEI score and formal recognition by the HRC as a 'Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality.'"
