The Times Top 50 Employers for women list celebrates UK employers that are building gender equality into their business strategy and have committed creating inclusive workplace cultures and women’s progression at work.
We are proud that strong leadership commitment is driving our actively inclusive culture, challenging and changing our practices and mobilising all Capgemini team members to play a part in creating a truly inclusive workplace.
In the last year, some of our work has included:
- Improving opportunities for flexible working through our work-life harmony policy
- Expanding our returnships programme to support women to return to work after long-term career breaks
- Taking gender into consideration when succession planning for all key leadership roles
- Refreshing recruitment policies to ensure an inclusive approach to hiring
- Promoting our female role models both internally and externally
- Inspiring our team members and school students with internal and external speakers at our employee network events
Christine Hodgson, Chairman at Capgemini UK, said: “I’m delighted that we have been recognised by Business in the Community in their prestigious ‘The Times Top 50 Employers for Women’ for the third year running – a list which becomes more competitive every year. Our placing as one of just 50 companies leading the way on workplace gender equality in the UK is a brilliant achievement. It reflects our commitment – through our Active Inclusion programme and work with our community partners – to making the technology industry a better place for women to work and thrive.”
Chloe Chambraud, Director of Gender Equality at Business in the Community said: “Congratulations to all of the organisations who have been named as Times Top 50 Employer for Women this year. Your relentless work to make your workplace more diverse and more inclusive deserves to be recognised and celebrated. We are delighted to see a growing number of employers supporting men to take on more caring responsibilities and tackling the root causes of gender inequality. Historically, companies focused on policies and processes to address the inequality and bias that employees face daily, but this is not enough. It is only by changing the culture and promoting positive behaviours from the top that employers will see real change, and we look forward to supporting them on this journey.”
