“Huge congratulations to Enterprise on being named in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2016 – the process was highly competitive so they should be extremely proud of their success,” said Kathryn Nawrockyi, gender equality director at Business in the Community. “They have demonstrated a commitment to fundamentally changing workplace processes and cultures to make them inclusive to all, benefitting women and men at every level in their organization, and I hope they inspire other employers to do the same.”
“The Times is pleased to celebrate Business in the Community's 25 years of campaigning for gender equality by publishing a special report to mark its 2016 list of the Top 50 Employers for Women,” said Emma Tucker, deputy editor of The Times. “The supplement will highlight the advances these 50 organizations have made in increasing opportunities and creating working environments where women are free to reach their full potential and also explore those areas where more needs to be done.”
