Enterprise has been listed as one of The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2022 for the 17th consecutive year!
We have again been recognised for taking action to decrease gender inequality in the workplace. While progress has been made in the areas needed to close the gender inequality gap, the pandemic and the cost of living crisis have had a disproportionate impact on women.
The Times Top 50 Employers for Women is the UK’s most highly profiled and well-established listing of employers striving for gender equality in the workplace. Run by Business in the Community (BITC) – The Prince’s Responsible Business Network, and The Times, the incredibly competitive process identifies companies which make gender equality part of the way they do business, working to embed it at all levels.
This year’s applicants were closely assessed on the work they do to remove the drivers that enforce gender inequality, from flexible working and family-friendly policies to pay, reward and progression. This year BITC included further assessment to include the lived experience of women employees by asking what areas they feel need to be improved.
Ryan Johnson, UK and Ireland Managing Director at Enterprise, said:
“Enterprise’s leadership team are proud that Enterprise has been included in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women for the 17th consecutive year. We are the only mobility company to be consistently recognised for our work to help female employees break stereotypes, particularly intersectional ones. With the support of management and their peers, our colleagues are encouraged to rise to the top in their careers. We are deeply committed to equitably supporting and mentoring our female colleagues to ensure they have the support they need to succeed.”
Katy Neep, Gender Equality Campaign Director at Business in the Community, said,
“The cost of living crisis following hot on the heels of the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 faced by women has further shone a light on how far we have to go on gender equality. Without action from all employers, we will end up chasing our tails while trying to eradicate the inequalities gap and create truly inclusive workplaces for all women.”
“The Times Top 50 gives us hope that we are making strong progress in our goal towards gender equality and in our 40th year we call on all employers to be bolder, braver and faster in achieving that goal.”
“This year’s application process was the most competitive one we have ever seen. Employers like Enterprise haven’t lifted their foot off the pedal when it comes to supporting women at work and they are a strong example of what commitment to making gender inequality a thing of the past looks like.”
