LGBTI Equal Rights Association for Western Balkans and Turkey
The Headhunter Group is pleased to announce and publish the findings of its second annual LGBTIQ Employment Equality Index in Albania 2017.
This year, the results of the second annual LGBTIQ Employment Equality Index in Albania were even more impressive. The participation was increased considerably and 109 companies operating in Albania answered to the questionnaires, which show a significant increase of awareness level from business environment in relation to the measures in place to protect the rights and uphold minorities and specifically, LGBTIQ job-seekers and employees.
Awardees and some other participating companies from the last year, achieved higher scores in the present year’s Index and have already taken concrete measures to protect LGBTIQ Albanians. They set an admirable example for other employers in the country to follow, by recognizing that upholding the rights of any group benefits all of the society. The increasing trend of participation and rates makes us believe that the 38 new companies joining this year’s LGBTIQ Index, will show improvements and achieve higher rating in the next year’s Index. We are humbled that they agreed to participate in our Index and we are inspired by their commitment.
