Capgemini UK has been recognised for its leadership on workplace gender equality by being named in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2017. The Times Top 50 Employers for Women is published in partnership with Business in the Community as part of the charity’s Responsible Business Week.

The alphabetical and unranked list acknowledges UK employers that are making gender equality a key part of their business strategy, with consistent commitment to creating inclusive workplace cultures and progressing women in the workplace that covers their entire organisation at all levels. The list involves a comprehensive submission process managed by the gender equality campaign of Business in the Community.

Earlier this week, Capgemini UK has been also named by BITC as an example of excellence for its commitment to improving access to employment for young people and excluded groups. We spoke to Christine Hodgson, Chairman of Capgemini UK, to find out what those recognitions mean to Capgemini:

 

Kathryn Nawrockyi, Gender Equality Director, Business in the Community, said: “Well done to Capgemini UK on being named in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2017 – the process was highly competitive so they should be very proud of their success. Their efforts are increasing understanding of the barriers to equality that women face at work, and I hope other employers will follow their lead.”

Emma Tucker, deputy editor of The Times, says: “In the seven years since The Times first published the Top 50 Employers for Women supplement we have seen great advances towards gender equality in the workplace. However, more remains to be done both in the boardroom and on the shop floor and we are again delighted to support Business in the Community’s campaign to create a fairer and better working environment for women.”
