Nationwide Building Society In Top 50 Employers For Women
Category: Employer Focus, Women, Nationwide, society
The annual list celebrates those employers doing the most for gender equality and diversity. Opportunity Now independently select the top 50 businesses which meet the criteria designed to test their consistent commitment to recruitment, retention and progression of women across their workforce.
The list was announced on the 2nd of April at the Opportunity Now Excellence in Practice Awards 2014, which we sponsor. The Awards, which form a part of Business in the Community's Responsible Business Week, recognise public and private sector organisations that are committed to creating inclusive workplaces for women at all levels.
We're focussed on attracting and promoting female talent across the organisation and this approach to development has seen high levels of women participating in talent programmes.
We pride ourselves on supporting the needs of our employees through different stages in their life by being flexible and agile, because after all, without them where would we be?
Keith Astill, HR Director, said:
"We're always looking to better ourselves in the way we operate a diverse and inclusive culture at Nationwide and we're seeing the results of this approach right across the board. Put simply, diversity improves business performance and our approach is to help our people be the best they can be at their job - whoever they are.
"We're extremely proud of being recognised as one of the UK's best companies for gender diversity and we are committed to creating a female-friendly work environment, something which is directly endorsed by Board level sponsorship."
