Dominic Houlihan - Director of People, Places and Services at IPO

We are very proud to have successfully achieved silver status through FairPlay Employer for the second year.

Around 45 per cent of our people are women and as part of our strategy to identify barriers in recruiting, retaining and progressing women within our workforce, we engaged with Chwarae Teg. Our aim is to improve the representation of women, particularly in its STEM roles (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and at senior level.

Our Director of People, Places and Services, Dominic Houlihan, has said: “We are honored to have been benchmarked silver in the highly regarded Chwarae Teg ‘Fair Play Employer’ programme.

“We’re proud of our commitment to initiatives that include flexible working, support for working families and the development of opportunities for women in STEM roles. These all contribute to ensuring fair play for women in the IPO workplace.”

Chwarae Teg’s FairPlay Employer Partner, Alison Dacey congratulated us on our ‘well-deserved award’ and said “Forward thinking employers like the IPO want to ensure their organisations provide the right environment for everyone to thrive. Our FairPlay Employer service can make it happen by giving organisations and businesses a clear path to success.”
