About Best Workplaces™ for Women
Best Workplaces™ for Women recognises organisations which go beyond the statutory to ensure that women in their workforce are treated fairly when it comes to pay, recognition, training and promotion opportunities, and where they can take the time off they need to attend to childcare or other family commitments.
Stephen Gordon, REL MD said:
We are delighted to be named a Great Place to Work for Women given that almost two thirds of our hard-working colleagues are female. However, aside from specific maternity enhancements our focus on being a Great Workplace and on engagement is all around people irrespective of gender!
One area that we have been deliberately focusing on is growing the number of women in our senior leadership team and it is really pleasing to share that the percentage of females in our top team has increased from 10% to 42% over the last two years which has not only improved the balance of the team but has led to improved cohesion and a more collaborative style of leadership.
