Summary:

As part of bankruptcy proceedings in 2023, Bed Bath & Beyond was acquired by Overstock.com, closing its retail stores but retaining its online presence. The newly merged company rebranded to Beyond, Inc. in 2024, but is still doing business as Bed Bath & Beyond. Bed Bath & Beyond stopped selling MyPillow products in response to Mike Lindell's pro-Trump statements. Overstock scored a 75 on the 2023 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a political stakeholder group. By complying with the HRC’s controversial demands, the company increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. The company provides specific sexual orientation and gender identity-based benefits. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in employee recruitment, vendor selection, marketing, and philanthropic support. Beyond, Inc. forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. The company does not provide viewpoint protections for its employees and discriminates against religious organizations in its charitable giving. Bed Bath & Beyond's CEO signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge. For these reasons, Beyond, Inc. receives a High Risk rating.
