We’re delighted to share the news that, in recognition of our continued dedication to workplace diversity, St Gemma’s has been ranked 44th in The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List. The top 50 is a definitive list of UK-based organisations that promote inclusion across all protected characteristics, throughout each level of employment within an organisation.
The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List recognises the outstanding efforts of organisations that have begun their journey to attracting and retaining a truly diverse workforce, achieving equality, diversity and inclusion at its purest form.
Companies must demonstrate the promotion of all strands of diversity including age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, faith & religion; the list focuses on representation at management, senior, executive and board level.
“This list presents the very best of UK companies who are integrating an inclusive culture right from the top of their organisations – no one size fits all, and the breadth of initiatives is a reminder of the importance in innovation and diversity of thinking for all employers”, said Founder & CEO of Inclusive Companies, Paul Sesay. “The top 50 represents the ripple effect all the organisations are making on not only their own people, but society as a whole. The list is a brilliant way of sharing the great strides that are being made”.
Our position in the list reflects the high standard to which we operate. As well as addressing areas of improvement, we have developed and delivered high impact initiatives to actively implement solutions.
Kerry Jackson, St Gemma’s Hospice Chief Executive says: “We’re delighted to have been ranked 44th in the UK’s Inclusive Companies awards. This is a great achievement, particularly as it’s the first year that we applied to be members.
“The Inclusive Companies list rewards organisations for ‘harnessing a truly diverse workforce and recognises the significant efforts of organisations nationwide that excel in their commitment to equality and inclusion across all strands of diversity.’ We truly do welcome diversity in all its forms and the richness this brings to our organisation.”
