Indeed, among the world's top job sites, is offering to help pay for employees to relocate. Not all employees, however; just those who reject the reality of their biological sex and those workers whose children are purportedly "gender non-conforming, transgender or non-binary."
The woke company told Axios that it internally announced this relocation benefit accommodating the reality-averse in July, but is only just now discussing it publicly.
$10,000 will reportedly be awarded to any transvestic, U.S.-based worker who seeks so-called "gender-affirming care" — a euphemism for destructive hormone therapies and genital mutilation procedures — but presently lives in an area where state laws or other government directives hinder the worker in obtaining it.
The same benefit similarly applies to workers seeking to move their gender-dysphoric kids out of areas that presently protect children from undergoing irreversible "gender-affirming care."
Bloomberg reported that the company, where at least one executive cites "queen" as a preferred pronoun, will also cover any tax liability created by the payment.
Extra to boosting ESG scores and placating LGBT activists, it appears that this initiative has something also to do with retention.
"Our transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming colleagues are integral to our business and culture at Indeed," Misty Gaither, vice president of DEI at the company, told Axios. "We know employees thrive and do their best work when they can bring their authentic selves to work. ... We also believe that everyone has the right to make the healthcare decisions that they feel are right for themselves and their families."
Among the handful of workers who have so far taken advantage is 30-year-old Sam Burger, a content creator at the company who used to go by Magdalene but now uses plural pronouns. She reportedly used the handout to leave Austin, Texas, for Denver, Colorado, which she figured would be a better fit. Bloomberg indicated the $10,000 has gone a long way, especially since the move has cost Burger roughly only $5,000 to date.
"As soon as I found out that I was getting the money, it was very much like a weight lifted," she said.
It's unclear how the sincerity of claimants is assessed and whether normal employees might be able to exploit the benefit simply by claiming to be transvestites.
Gaither, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, noted in the company's 2023 DEI report, "We're focused on making progress towards our goal to increase representation of women and underrepresented genders (URG) to 50% at all levels of Indeed's global workforce, and increase U.S. workforce representation of underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities (URM) to 30% by 2030."
