Transamerica, Aegon's main brand in the United States, has received a perfect score in the annual Corporate Equality Index for the 5th consecutive year.
Transamerica has earned a score of 100% from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation on their 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). Our US business has received a perfect score on the annual benchmarking survey and report— which measures workplace equality for LGBTQ+ employees — since 2017.
"Transamerica has made a strong commitment to inclusion and diversity, and we appreciate being recognized once again by the Human Rights Campaign for our efforts to maintain workplace equality," said Holly Waters, Chief People, Places & Brand Officer at Transamerica.
"We believe that diversity makes us smarter and more creative. We value the wellbeing of all our employees, and we will continue to make every effort to ensure our LGBTQ+ employees receive our support and that all employees are empowered to bring their authentic selves to work each day. We are proud to be an inclusive organization," Waters added.
Transamerica supports inclusion through unconscious bias training for employees to promote a respectful workplace, as well as Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), including Transamerica PROUD for LGBTQ+ employees and allies. ERGs, which are open to all employees, host regular events to highlight members' interests and issues and allow members to provide insight and feedback to the company's leaders.
The CEI index evaluates corporate policies and practices regarding LGBTQ inclusion and workforce protections, including include non-discrimination policies, equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families, inclusive workplace culture, and corporate social responsibility. Transamerica's efforts to meet all the CEI's criteria resulted in the 100% ranking and the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
