Watertown, MA – Tufts Health Plan has been recognized as a Best Place to Work by Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) on its 2020 Disability Equality Index® (DEI). This is the third consecutive year Tufts Health Plan has been recognized, earning a score of 100 percent.

“Recent events have shown us how important it is to reflect on issues of human rights and inequality both in the workplace as well as in our communities,” said Lydia Greene, chief human resources officer at Tufts Health Plan. “As an organization, we’re committed to creating a workplace that is inclusive for all, filled with talent of every background and ability and making certain that every voice is heard. We are very proud of our 100 percent score, and to be considered a leader in disability inclusion.”

Now in its sixth year, the DEI exists to help business impact the unemployment and underemployment of people with disabilities. This year’s survey evaluated 247 global companies. It is now recognized as the most comprehensive disability inclusion assessment tool. The 2020 Index measured performance standards across organizational culture, leadership, accessibility, employment practices (benefits, recruitment, employment, education, accommodations, retention and advancement), community engagement and supplier diversity.

“The best way to attract, retain and grow talent with disabilities is to create an accessible, inclusive workplace,” said Jill Houghton, president and CEO, Disability:IN. “This year’s top scoring Disability Equality Index companies are demonstrating their commitment to many of the numerous leading disability inclusion practices featured in the DEI, recognizing that there’s still room for improvement. We are proud to have developed strong partnerships with corporate allies who are committed to advancing disability inclusion and equality across their businesses in the United States and around the world.”
