In recognition of their continued dedication to workplace diversity, Touchstone has once again been ranked first in The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List – which lists UK based organisations that promote inclusion across all protected characteristics, throughout each level of employment within an organisation.
Powered by The Excellence in Diversity Awards, The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers is a dynamic and exclusive resource that has identified the most inclusive companies across the nation.
Demonstrating the promotion of all strands of diversity including age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, faith & religion; the list focuses on representation at management, senior, executive and board level.
Complied by a dedicated panel of judges the list has been collated based on each organisation’s performance on a range of areas within the diversity arena. Organisations featured have provided sufficient evidence on a range of topics including recruitment procedures, training and a host of diversity related initiatives.
The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List in partnership with Rullion recognises the outstanding efforts of organisations that have begun their journey to attracting and retaining a truly diverse workforce, achieving equality, diversity and inclusion in its purest form.
“The most successful and prosperous employers understand the value and rewards of harnessing diverse talent” said Founder & CEO, Paul Sesay. “Those featured on the definitive list of the UK’s most inclusive employers are leading the way in providing inclusive workplaces where everyone feels empowered to be the very best they can be”.
