Yorkshire Building Society has been ranked 10th in The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List 2022/23 in recognition of its continued dedication to workplace diversity.

The mutual climbed six places from last year’s ranking after building on inclusive initiatives such as new colleague networks, a development programme specifically for black, Asian and ethnically diverse colleagues and rolling out strength-based assessments for more inclusive recruitment.

Baljit Singh, talent resourcing and inclusion lead at Yorkshire Building Society, said:

This latest award reflects another great year of progressing our inclusion and diversity ambitions and we’re all really pleased and very proud that the Society’s commitment to inclusion, equality and diversity continues to be recognised externally.

We’re committed to building a more inclusive and welcoming place for all to work. I’m looking forward to seeing what more we can achieve with the plans we have in place for next year and beyond, but for now, we celebrate how far we’ve come to make the Society a better workplace.

Compiled by Inclusive Companies, the UK list acknowledges and ranks businesses which are most consistent throughout the whole tenure of their organisations and encompass all types of diversity. Now in its seventh year, it has become the definitive cross-industry index harnessing both best practice and innovation with the goal of driving inclusion for all.

Founder and CEO of Inclusive Companies, Paul Sesay, said:

The independent advisory panel of Diversity & Inclusion experts review and analyse each and every submission.  They look at ALL areas of diversity, including age, culture, disability, ethnicity, gender, LGBTQ+ and religion. Those organisations who have participated submit a great wealth of evidence regarding their inclusive practices, covering a wide range of areas and topics, and it is from this that the experts determine the Top 50 Inclusive employers.
