According to a recent survey carried out by LGBT equality charity Stonewall, several Nottinghamshire employers have been recognised as some of the most inclusive in Britain.
The employers who participated in the survey had to demonstrate their work in 10 areas of employment policy and practice. Staff also had to complete an anonymous survey about their experience of diversity and inclusion at work.
Organisations have been able to use their scores to be able to understand where they need to focus their efforts and see how they performed in comparison with their sector and region.
Pinsent Mason made it to number one on the survey, having performed well in the survey for the last 10 years.
Four Nottinghamshire based employers also made the top 100, they were Nottinghamshire County Council, Nottingham City Homes, Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and Nottingham City Council.
Nottingham City Homes were placed in 44th position, 101 places up from last year, they also came third in the housing sector across the UK.
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue achieved a ranking of 99, increasing its ranking by 72 places. They were also one of only three fire services to be featured in the list.
Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council were ranked in 30th place and were the highest placed county council in the East Midlands. The City Council were ranked at 95 and their LGBT employee network was also awarded Stonewall’s Highly commended Network award for 2019.
