In addition, Deloitte has been awarded a prestigious Gender Equality Game Changer Award; this award recognises the firm’s “relentless focus” on respect and inclusion since 2015.
The top 50 list, published in The Times, celebrates UK employers focused on driving greater gender equality in the workplace.
Emma Codd, managing partner for talent at Deloitte, said: “We are extremely proud to be listed once again as a top employer for women alongside other companies that are committed to driving greater gender equality in the workplace. It is also a great honour to receive a Game Changer Award for the focus that we have had on ensuring that we always provide an inclusive culture underpinned by respect.
“This focus, which has been led from the top of our firm, has seen us – amongst other things – create the thought-provoking Ask Yourself film, put 6,000 of our most senior leaders through extensive inclusive leadership sessions, create and roll out mandatory online inclusion development sessions to all our people, and ensure that all our people feel able to escalate any concerns they may have when it comes to respect and inclusion.”
Chloe Chambraud, director of Gender Equality at Business in the Community added: “Historically companies focused on policies and processes to address the inequality and bias that employees face on a daily basis. 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.”
