Deloitte names top employer for women

It comes as Deloitte launched new policies within the last year to 'support inclusion across the firm'

Deloitte has been named in The Times top 50 employers for women 2022 list.

It comes as Deloitte launched new policies within the last year to “support inclusion across the firm”, introducing new policies such as the ‘allyship toolkit’ and the ‘better balance framework’ to “promote gender allyship”.

Jackie Henry, managing partner people and purpose at Deloitte, said: “Our place in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women list reaffirms our focus on creating an inclusive workplace, one that empowers women to succeed and thrive at work.

“I recognise the wider societal challenges that women face in the workplace and in their careers. Recent Deloitte Global research found that women in the UK reported widespread burnout and the lack of flexible working opportunities continues to hinder working women’s career progress.

She added: “We are developing and advancing our gender balance action plan as we continue to prioritise the recruitment, development and retention of women at all levels of our organisation. I am personally committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace where there is opportunity for all genders to thrive at work.”

Miriam Earley, director for inclusion and wellbeing at Deloitte UK, added: “We continue to put in place various interventions and policies to support gender balance.

“Our shift to hybrid working has had a positive impact on our people, with 96% saying they want to have the freedom to choose how flexibly they work. Our policies are supporting working parents and those with caring responsibilities.”
