24 April 2019
Today (24 April), Costain has been named in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2019 for the second successive year.
Compiled by Business in the Community, The Times Top 50 Employers for Women list is the UK’s most highly profiled and well-established listing of employers leading the way on workplace gender equality.
Sally Austin, Costain Group HR director said: “I am proud that once again we have been recognised for our commitment to increasing the representation of women at all levels of our business. We believe that creating truly diverse teams makes us more innovative and better able to deliver smarter solutions, meeting the needs of our customers.”
Chloe Chambraud, Director of Gender Equality at Business in the Community said: “Congratulations to all of the organisations who have been named as Times Top 50 Employer for Women this year. Your relentless work to make your workplace more diverse and more inclusive deserves to be recognised and celebrated. We are delighted to see a growing number of employers supporting men to take on more caring responsibilities and tackling the root causes of gender inequality.
Historically companies focused on policies and processes to address the inequality and bias that employees face on a daily basis. But this is not enough. It is only by changing the culture and promoting positive behaviours from the top that employers will see real change, and we look forward to supporting them on this journey. “
