100 remote-working LGBTQ companies that are driving real change

Working flexibility isn’t just a nice perk anymore, it’s an employee demand – as is a commitment to diversity and LGBTQ. Employee expectations of their employer have shifted dramatically post-pandemic, with candidates only wanting to work for companies that’re vocal in their support of inclusivity, a desire to change the world for the better, and an investment in remote models.

In honour of Pride Month, FlexJobs uncovered the top 100 remote-working companies that’re authentically committed to supporting LGBTQ employees. According to the survey, there’s reason for hopefulness after seeing the growing number of employers that’ve taken significant steps to implement concrete policies that “ensure greater equity for LGBTQ workers and their families.”

However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. According to a recent Out & Equal Workplace Advocates analysis, over 50% of organisations need to do more to support LGBTQ issues. What’s more, workers who believe their employers to be supportive of a diverse agenda are 13% more likely to stay with them rather than jumping ship to a new role.

“I think it’s the experience of all LGBTQ people,” added Michael Bach, former CEO of the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion. “Personally, mine was affected by time. I came out privately in 1986 but coming out at work wasn’t really an option. I was, admittedly, 16, and working was just slinging hamburgers somewhere, but even when I got into the professional workforce no one was out. It simply wasn’t an option. As LGBTQ people we look for a symbol of some kind that says, ‘This is a safe place where you’re not going to be discriminated against’.”
