Who’s the most gay friendly employer?

Thanks to my colleague Steve Norman for spotting that Stonewall have published their 2016 list of best employers for LGBT staff – Rebecca

Many graduate employers/recruiters are keen to have as diverse a workforce as possible (it’s good for business!)

Stonewall – an LGBT campaigning organisation – has recently published its 2016 list of best employers for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) staff.

So you may (or may not) be surprised to learn that MI5 (the Security Service) has come out top out of 400 organisations. So how did they earn this accolade?

According the BBC website “Stonewall said MI5 had demonstrated its equality in 10 areas of employment policy and practice, including networking groups, training and community engagement.”

The Top 5 were (in order): MI5, Lloyds Banking Group, National Assembly of Wales, B3Living (Social Housing provider) and Pinsent Masons (Law Firm).

You can see who who else is on the list on the Stonewall website
