The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) measures LGBTQ-inclusive policies and procedures of large, major employers in the United States. At the end, they annually award The Best Places to Work For designations regarding LGBTQ+ equality.
Measured policies include Domestic Partner Benefits, Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity Nondiscrimination Policies, a Public Commitment to the LGBTQ+ Community and more.
Often, people search for whether not a specific restaurant leans liberal or conservative. That information can often be hard to find. However, how a restaurant, corporation or food industry leader values their LGBTQ+ employees is inspected annually by the HRC.
Excitingly, here are the Best Places to Work 2022 award recipients in Restaurant, Food and Cooking industries. They scored a perfect score of 100. Are your favorites here? A fast food hot spot, place to grab coffee or grocery store that you like?
