TOP 100 EMPLOYERS 2018
The definitive list of the most LGBT-inclusive employers in Britain.
Each organisation featured below has done outstanding work over the past year to make sure every LGBT employee is accepted without exception.
Since we began the Workplace Equality Index in 2005, hundreds of organisations have used our framework to help create a work environment where their staff can be themselves and, because of that, thrive at work.
The impact of the Index is now felt far wider than just the workplace. Organisations and businesses are the driving force of equality in society, creating spaces where customers, services users and wider LGBT communities are accepted.
At Stonewall, we’re incredibly proud that employers continue to champion inclusion and push equality forward. It’s the everyday actions we take, from staff training to profiling role models, that help create a workplace – and so a world – where LGBT people are treated with dignity and respect.
Now, when the protections established for LGBT people feel increasingly at risk and at the same time more important than ever, it's the time for all employers to reflect on their responsibilities; not only to their employees, but to the wider community. In particular, trans people are more vulnerable than ever. They face huge levels discrimination, abuse and bullying, across all parts of society. That makes the visible support of employers critical in achieving trans equality. This year many organisations have made great strides towards creating workplaces where trans people feel truly able to be themselves.
We're extremely proud to say that every organisation and business in our Top 100 has shown commitment towards trans equality. But there's still lots more to be done. This year has been our first fully trans-inclusive Index. In the years ahead Stonewall will continue to be by the side of employers, helping you to embed trans inclusion across all of your work, so that no-one is left behind and everyone can contribute.
Congratulations to all Top 100 Employers from me personally, and from all the hundreds of thousands of people that this Index touches. Thank you to all the organisations that took part. Your commitment to LGBT equality - your willingness to Come Out For LGBT - is inspiring.
By working together, we can ensure that all LGBT people are accepted without exception.
