“We are practicing what we wanted to preach. Diversity, inclusion and wellbeing are the cornerstones of our business. Women make up over 40% of our workforce, Diversity & Inclusion ambassadors lead the way on challenging and educating and we have a super strong Women in Technology (WIT) team operating to showcase the amazing contributions that women make in the sector. Our approach has won us the Investors in People Platinum mark – an accolade only achieved by 2% of organisations globally.
“One of our core values is “Share our Success” and we are firm believers in using our platform to give back to the industries we operate in and the wider community. Working from the inside out, we carry a portfolio of work to constantly challenge and push the sector, whilst also raising and realising aspirations so it’s a real honour to be recognised for this.”
