The Hampton-Alexander Review published today has shown that Capita has climbed 40 places to 70th position in the gender diversity rankings of FTSE 250 companies.
The Review – which began reporting in 2016 – is committed to improving women’s representation at board level and leadership roles that cover 23,000 positions across all sectors of British business. Capita has now met the Hampton-Alexander Review target for 33 per cent women’s representation on FTSE 350 Boards, one year ahead of target.
Capita is committed to creating a workforce that is inclusive and reflects the diversity of our communities. In order to drive gender diversity, Capita has recently introduced gender shortlisting so that at least 40 per cent of leadership role shortlists contain females, improved maternity benefits and rolled out mentoring programmes to develop more career paths for women. While this year we have welcomed two new women onto our board – Lyndsay Browne and Georgina Harvey.
Beyond gender diversity, Capita also wants to encourage diversity in all its forms, whether that is your education, age, race, working style, sexual orientation, religion or belief. To this end, our purpose, values and behaviours and Code of Conduct emphasise the inclusive behaviour expected of all our people and those working on behalf of Capita.
