Capgemini is one of the 70 organisations who have been recognised on race equality and inclusion in the workplace in the 2018 Business in the Community’s Best Employers for Race listing, which celebrates organisations who aim to make a difference.
Capgemini has also been Highly Commended in the Recruitment Award category in the Business in the Community Race Equality Awards. The Awards highlight best practice on race equality and inclusion in UK workplaces, and are open to organisations included in the Best Employers for Race listing. The Award Winners and Highly Commended organisations were announced today at a celebration event in London.
As the Capgemini BAME network sponsor, Nivedita Krishnamurthy, President Cloud Infrastructure Services for UK and Northern Europe, commented: “We are proud to be named in the Best Employer for Race list. As a strongly non-hierarchical business in over 40 countries, with over 100 languages spoken, different cultures and backgrounds make us who we are, and our Capgemini core values underpin our inclusive ethos. We are committed to hiring, developing and progressing talented people from all backgrounds, and to foster a culture where everyone who works for or alongside us feels welcome and respected whatever their race or ethnicity. We are delighted to have our efforts recognised by Business in the Community.”
Sandra Kerr OBE, race equality director at Business in the Community, said:
“Congratulations to Capgemini on being named in the Best Employers for Race 2018 listing and Highly Commended for the Recruitment Award. They have demonstrated their leadership and commitment to creating fair, diverse and inclusive workplaces that work for all employees, including those from BAME backgrounds. In a rapidly changing global business environment, it’s vital that organisations make the most of all the diverse talent available to them to successfully compete, and Capgemini is doing just that. I hope more employers will learn from their example, seize the moment to act on workplace race equality and following the example set out by the leading employers in this listing by signing up for Race at Work Charter launched earlier this month.”
