2017 INDEX
About the Index

The Hong Kong LGBT+ Inclusion Index (Index) is the first benchmark on LGBT+ workplace inclusion practices and initiatives in Asia. Introduced by Community Business for the first time in 2015, it is a pioneering initiative that provides organisations in Hong Kong with a credible and robust tool to assess, progress and promote their efforts towards LGBT+ inclusion. The Index combines learning from global indices to ensure an approach suitable for organisations operating in Hong Kong.

Index Structure 

The Index is based on the recommendations outlined in Community Business’ leading publication: Creating Inclusive Workplaces for LGBT Employees in Hong Kong – A Resource Guide for Employers.  Whilst the structure remains largely the same as the 2015 edition, the 2017 Index has been fully reviewed to ensure that the categories and questions continue to drive the adoption of best practice. The 2017 Index contains 26 multiple choice questions structured around the following nine categories:

Assessment Process                                                                          

Community Business invests time and resources to ensure a highly rigorous and credible assessment process. 

All submissions are pre-assessed by a member of the Community Business team to ensure that all questions have been answered and the relevant Supporting Information has been provided.  Where time allows, Community Business may contact the Participating Organisations to highlight any missing information. 

All submissions are then reviewed and assessed by at least two senior members of the Community Business Team. A scoring pair is assigned to each submission and assessors review each submission individually before coming together to discuss, align and agree the final score.
