Top 50 Employers for Women lists

 

TOP 50 Employers for Women list (2006 - 2017)

The reason Where Women Work founded the UK's TOP 50 list way back in 2006 was to provide an insightful source of reference for female candidates - whether interns, graduates, experienced professionals, women returners or senior executives. The list was the first of its kind in the UK and has grown from strength to strength for well over a decade.

About the TOP 50 Employers for Women list

The Times TOP 50 Employers for Women list features top employers in the UK who actively work to recruit, retain, develop and progress female talent in exciting and innovative ways.

When we first chose and approached The Times back over a decade ago pitching our TOP 50 idea and looking to secure them as the media partner, there was strong resistance to such a female-only orientated list. But as the years passed and interest in our TOP 50 grew from participating employers, the TOP 50 list grew not just to be an excellent source of reference, but a prestigious annual award honouring and recognising progressive employers.

143 organisations in TOP 50 lists since 2006

Since 2006 the TOP 50 initiative has certainly grown from strength to strength. Today, 143 different organisations have been honoured for their focus on supporting women in the workplace via the TOP 50 list. From the start, we always ran the list alphabetically rather than an ordered list because different organisations appeal to women for varied reasons. How could we possibly claim that one company is best for all women?
