Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index is a tool designed to help measure an organisations performance and progress in LGBT equality and inclusion. By using this framework, an organisation is actively demonstrating a commitment to LGBT equality – to staff, service users and customers. The Stonewall Index is now in its thirteenth year.
It has been proven that people perform better when they can be themselves.
Stonewall works with over 700 employers to demonstrate that creating an inclusive workplace is not only the right thing to do, but is also crucial to their success. Through their Diversity Champions programme, Stonewall helps employers across all sectors and industries create workplaces where lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff can be themselves and, because of this, thrive.
Participating employers demonstrate their work in 10 areas of employment policy and practice. Staff from across the organisation also complete an anonymous survey about their experiences of diversity and inclusion at work.
Organisations then receive their scores, enabling them to understand what’s going well and where they need to focus their efforts, as well as see how they’ve performed in comparison with their sector and region. The 100 best-performing organisations are celebrated publicly.
The Top 100 Employers list is compiled from submissions to the Workplace Equality Index. Each organisation featured has done exceptional and pioneering work to help make sure that every LGBT employee can be themselves in the workplace.
They also have eight Star Performers, organisations that have ranked in the Top 10 of the Workplace Equality Index at least three times in the last five years.
