“Hachette” among “Times” Top 50 Gender Equality List

Hachette UK has been listed  among the Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality in 2023 for the fourth year running.  Run by the charity Business in the Community, the scheme identifies companies that embed gender equality in their business.

Applicants are closely assessed on the work they do to remove systemic and organisational barriers to gender equality, while the lived experience of employees is also taken into account.  Hachette UK submitted evidence of the business’ commitment to removing gender inequalities in the workplace, including flexible working, family-friendly policies, pay, reward, and progression at work. Hachette UK’s Gender Balance employee network is the largest of the business’ 11 networks and has driven culture change via events, advising on policy change and advocating for its members.

Lisa Waterman, group HR director at Hachette UK, said: “I’m delighted that Hachette UK has been selected as one of the Times Top 50 Employers for Gender Equality for the fourth year running. I am pleased to have been recognised for the support we have given our workforce during this time of economic disruption, the progress we’ve made on the number of women in senior leadership roles, and our continued push forward with gender equality initiatives such as our Pregnancy and Baby Loss Guidelines as well as the work we continue to do on promoting our Menopause policy.

“Whilst listings such as this demonstrate we are moving in the right direction, I also realise the continual need for us to openly talk about equality, equity, diversity, and inclusivity in the workplace ensuring we are?all?actively accountable for creating positive change. I’m proud to work for a business that has gender equality at its heart and am excited by the work we need to do for the future.”
