Kantar’s UK Worldpanel division is one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Women 2019, Great Place to Work announced today.
The Best Workplaces for Women 2019 ranking acknowledges those organisations which are working hard to provide the best employee experience for women by creating flexible, family-friendly workplaces and introducing specific programmes to foster development among female employees.
The organisation achieved 12th place in the ranking of “large” UK companies – those with between 251 and 1000 employees.
Kantar’s UK Worldpanel division has long had a 50/50 gender balance in its team and has introduced new policies and ways of working which demonstrate a long-term commitment to advancing the interests of the women in its workforce. These include having at least one woman on all interview and promotion panels, targets to increase representation of women at management level, family friendly policies, mentoring and flexible working.
Commenting on the award, Abi Macdonald, HR Director said: “We are delighted to have been recognised as being ahead of the curve with regards to including and supporting women. This award is a really great validation of the work we’ve been doing to attract, nurture and retain the women in our team.”
The award follows the team’s achievement of 15th Place in the Best Workplaces 2019 (large category) list in May this year.
