Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett pushed back against a report from earlier this year that labeled his investment firm as one of the worst workplaces in the nation when it comes to protecting the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers.
In an interview, Buffett questioned the methodology of the annual Corporate Equality Index from activist group the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. It gave Berkshire Hathaway a score of "0" on the adoption of inclusive policies, practices and benefits for LGBT employees.
"We get surveys all the time ... on all kinds of things, and we basically don't answer them," explained Buffett, who added it's Berkshire's practice not to respond to surveys.
Berkshire is a diverse conglomerate of 75 subsidiary units, each of which runs autonomously with little direction from headquarters. "I do not set the policies for the 75 companies," Buffett said.
However, when it comes to his own beliefs on the issue, Buffett was clear: "Certainly, our managers know how I feel. I am 100 percent for full rights, in every respect, for gays and lesbians."
Asked for a response to Buffett's statement, HRC Foundation did not elaborate on its methodology but said: "We believe, as do the majority of Fortune 1,000 companies, that proactive nondiscrimination policies should be in place by every company to reflect their commitment to equal treatment to all of its employees."
