Hear from our Chief People Officer
"Not only is it right to celebrate differences and ensure everyone has the opportunity to thrive, but creating a culture that is a genuine meritocratic workplace is vital to our success."
Financial Times diversity award
We are delighted to have been announced as one of the top 100 Diversity Leaders of 2020 across European businesses following an independent survey carried out on behalf of the Financial Times. The award assesses diversity across gender, age, ethnicity, disability and sexual orientation, and ranks organisations in Europe on the extent to which they offer diverse and inclusive workplaces. The survey focused on two broad areas, looking at the scale in which employers promoted diversity within the workforce, and identifying companies that stood out when it came to encouraging diversity and equal opportunities.
Gender pay gap
The Gender Pay Gap refers to the difference between the average pay of all men and the average pay of all women. Like many technology companies, we have traditionally had more men than women in senior and technical roles in our business, which is what drives our Gender Pay Gap. To tackle this we are committed to a long-term goal of filling our non-entry-level roles through internal promotions and doing so using a clean, bias-free and open selection process.
Social mobility pledge
We have signed up to the Social Mobility pledge, founded by former UK Cabinet Minister, Rt Hon. Justine Greening, and UK entrepreneur David Harrison. The Social Mobility Pledge shows commitment to social mobility. Taking steps to boost social mobility is more important than ever as we face the challenges of a growing opportunity gap in the wake of Covid-19. Read about the three key elements of the Pledge: outreach, access and recruitment.
