RACINE, Wis., January 29, 2020 – SC Johnson today announced it has earned a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign’s 2020 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) survey and report. This honor marks the 15th time the company has earned a perfect score and its 18th year of recognition on the workplace equality list. The CEI is the nation’s leading benchmarking tool and report on corporate policies and practices pertinent to the LGBTQ community. 

“Equality, inclusion and respect are at the heart of our core values, so to be recognized with a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign is an honor,” said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson. “We are proud of making our company an internationally recognized great place to work.”
