Capgemini is named in the Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2022, celebrated for its successful achievements for gender equality and inclusion

The Times Top 50 Employers for Women is the UK’s most highly profiled and well-established listing of employers striving for gender equality in the workplace. The list is unranked and in alphabetical order.

Recognising best practice 

Recognising best practice the accolade identifies UK employers that make gender equality part of their business strategy and bring it to life at all levels. Employers are assessed on a range of areas including their approach to recruitment, family friendly policies, and how they championed gender equality in the context of the pandemic.

Managing Director at Capgemini UK, Paul Margetts, said: “I’m delighted that we have been recognised in the The Times Top 50 Employers for Women for the sixth year running. We continue to push for progress at all levels of the organisation – and while there is more to do, this reflects our sustained commitment and actions towards achieving gender equality in our hybrid working world.” 

Gender Equality Director at Business in the Community, Charlotte Woodworth, said: “COVID-19 has shone a light on how far we have to go on gender equality: by having to pick up things like the bulk of extra caring responsibilities, women have been disproportionately affected by lockdown. We congratulate the many employers who have maintained their efforts towards gender equality at this time, often introducing innovative policies to support their workforce during this period. This year’s application process for The Times Top 50 Employers for Women was the most competitive one we have seen in five years. Employers like Capgemini UK haven’t forgotten women at work and they are committed to making gender inequality a thing of the past.”

Gender equality is critical to business 

Capgemini knows that gender equality and inclusion are critical to its success. As the company moved into the second and third years of the pandemic disruption, Capgemini kept focused on its actions to progress inclusion and appreciated the values its people were demonstrating. In this context, and as the company continues to embed its new hybrid ways of working, Capgemini continues its work on:

  • establishing rituals for hybrid working – from informal to formal, one-to-one to team gatherings – ensuring these routines are established to reduce proximity bias
  • investing in external expertise with Women on Boards: supporting 160 women with external training to develop their board leadership skills – to apply in and out of work, and support progression at Capgemini
  • focusing on women’s health and support – Capgemini launched Peppy, an app providing personalised medical support for women at different stages, which has so far provided access to expert support to 270+ our colleagues, including webinar series, group chat, video calls with medical practitioners and a suite of other resources
  • the Women@CapgeminiUK network continued to grow: chaired by one of the company's Vice Presidents and empowering its local communities to support each other, extend event invitations and celebrate individual and collective successes
  • increasing support for different groups – communities connecting and supporting on baby loss, menopause, neurodiversity and young carers
  • focusing on physical and mental wellbeing – providing support, fostering empowerment to work in a sustainable way; especially through Time4You – Capgemini's series of virtual events on everything from, parenting, women’s health, fitness to favourite records, empowering people to take time out for themselves
  • recruiting inclusively through actions such as balanced shortlists, advertising roles on diverse hiring job boards, updated hiring manager training
  • keeping gender balance a focus when succession planning for leadership roles
  • continuing its programme of targeted mentoring opportunities for women
  • sharing the journeys and brilliant work of its female role models internally and externally
  • about Business in the Community and The Times Top 50 Employers for Women
