It is obvious that along with the investors even the employees of Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (NASDAQ:HBAN) feel that the bank is all set to go places.

Commenting about the acknowledgment by his staff about the company’s efforts to make all employees feel at home, Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (NASDAQ:HBAN) chairman, president and CEO Steve Steinour has been quoted as saying, “Huntington’s improved HRC rating is the result of grassroots employee engagement with executive leadership toward a shared goal of better demonstrating Huntington’s commitment to the LGBT community as part of its overall commitment to inclusion. I couldn’t be more proud of our colleagues for uniting together to improve Huntington’s HRC Corporate Equality Index score. Recognition among the Best Places to Work by the Human Rights Campaign is a great honour and validation of our ongoing efforts to be a leading employer of choice.”
Expanding on the many contributing factors which resulted in the honour of getting recognized for best employer practices, the rating agency has identified “equal employment and non-discrimination policies, as well as LGBT colleague and community engagement” initiatives as key to this recognition.
