3 things you didn’t know about working for Experian

Category: Blogger's Corner

Experian aims to attract, grow and retain talented people. Its workers reflect its global reach, the breadth of its clients and consumers and its values of inclusion and diversity.

This is why the company creates a work environment where people can develop and be themselves. This is true regardless of gender, ethnicity, thinking style, experience, age, sexual orientation, physical ability or economic background.

Flexible and agile working arrangements are actively promoted to ensure that all Experian employees can balance home and work commitments. The company also undertakes the following initiatives to ensure inclusion and diversity across its working environment.

1) Parental initiatives

Experian understands the importance of family life. But balancing work and family can be a demanding task. To support employees, the company offers a wide range of parental benefits. From adoption leave to shared parental leave, employees have the opportunity to support their dependants in the best way possible. Experian realises the need to ensure they can do so whilst ensuring their careers stay on track. In a recent government survey, 11% of mothers reported unfair treatment after returning from maternity leave. These women were either dismissed, made redundant, or treated so poorly they had to leave. Experian’s parental initiatives work to combat such discrimination while also enabling adoptive parents, fathers, and carers to share parental leave.

2) Gender balance

Experian launched a Women in Experian ambassador programme in March 2016 to improve gender balance throughout the organisation. The initiatives from this scheme are dedicated to ensuring that women can reach their career potential at Experian. In fact, five Experian female employees were recently honoured by the Advancing Women in Technology (AWT) organisation. They were each presented with the Rising Women in Technology award. The award acknowledges those who have been successful in establishing their careers while being in technical designations. Examples of eligible technical fields include engineering, business analytics, management, and software domains.

3) LGBT+ network

Experian is a sponsor of Pride in London. It also recently launched its own LGBT+ network, open to all colleagues, to support inclusiveness in the business. The network joins a growing list of networking groups within the company, designed to promote and support inclusivity and diversity. According to a survey by Stonewall, 19% of respondents felt they could not be open about their sexuality at work. Experian creates a working environment in which all genders, sexualities, and backgrounds are respected and celebrated.
