We’re proud to announce that Nielsen has been ranked 11th in The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List, in recognition of our continued dedication to workplace diversity. As well as addressing areas of improvement, Nielsen continues to develop and deliver initiatives that promote inclusion and our position in the ranking reflects the high standards to which we operate.

Nielsen UK has been recognised for our continuous dedication to Diversity, Equality and Inclusion. Cathy Earle, HR Director, UK, Nordics & Ireland for Nielsen, said: “Companies need to understand that having a truly diverse and inclusive culture is a business differentiator; it attracts and retains the best of talent and allows them to perform at their best.”

The list includes UK based organisations that promote inclusion across all protected characteristics, throughout each level of employment. Now in its fifth year, it has become a leading cross industry index harnessing best practice and innovation to drive inclusion for all. 

Compiled by a dedicated panel of judges, organisations featured have provided sufficient evidence on an amalgamation of topics including recruitment procedures, training and a host of diversity related initiatives. Demonstrating the promotion of all strands of diversity including age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, faith & religion; the list also focuses on representation at management, senior, executive and board level.

The disruption of COVID-19 followed by the impact of the Black Lives Matter Movement has prompted employers to adapt and highlighted those that are leading with inclusion at the forefront.

“This year, more than any other, Inclusive Companies have seen a shift in the inclusion approach of organisations participating in the Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List” said Founder and CEO, Paul Sesay. “Companies featured on this year’s list have felt the importance of ensuring individual voices are heard and standing up as responsible employers against discrimination and inequality. Those who ranked are on a continuous journey but have made it their mission to advocate for inclusive workplaces where everyone feels empowered to be the very best they can be”.
