Fortune's Best Companies List a Milestone for Non-Discrimination

The 100 Best Companies to Work For in the country as ranked by Fortune all have sexual orientation-inclusive nondiscrimination policies, a milestone for the annual list.

CNN Money reports:

In 2008, 95 of the top 100 Best Companies to Work For had such policies in place, and by 2011 that number was up to 99.

"It's been gathering strength over the 15 years that we've done the survey," said Milton Moskowitz, a co-author of the list. Similar progress has been made in benefits for same-sex domestic partners, which are now offered by 89 of the 100 companies listed, up from 70 five years ago.

"It's not surprising to me that the places that are ranked the best to work are also the ones that are going to respect and value their employees," said Michael Cole-Schwartz, communications manager at the Human Rights Campaign, an organization that advocates on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.

Topping the list is Google, which announced late last year that it was extending transgender-inclusive health care to all its domestic employees.
