Electronic Arts has scored a 100% on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC)’s corporate equality index for the second year in a row, the publisher announced.

“We’re very proud that EA has been named a ‘Best Place to Work’ by HRC again this year and that our organization has been recognized for providing a workplace that is inclusive and where everyone feels welcome,” head of diversity and inclusion Andrew Chambers said. “We look forward to continuing that tradition in 2014.”

In the past year, EA and its various studios have actively participated in various LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender]–focused activities, including Pride Parades held across the U.S. and Canada, hosting a “Full Spectrum” event in New York in which industry leaders explored LGBT representation in games and attitudes to LGBT players within gaming, and officially sponsoring the GaymerX convention held in San Francisco this past August.

The Human Rights Campaign lists four main objectives of the criteria for their corporate equality index:

  • Provide equal benefits for same-sex partners and spouses
  • End benefits discrimination for transgender employees and dependents
  • Demonstrate firm-wide organizational competency on LGBT issues
  • Demonstrate firm-wide public commitment to the LGBT community

Electronic Arts is the only videogame company to earn a 100% from HRC. Other companies to land a perfect score include Apple, Bank of America, Ford, Sony Electronics, and Sony Pictures.
