Lloyds Banking Group Rated As The Best LGBT Employer In The UK

Lloyds Banking Group

Lloyds Banking Group has been named the best lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employer in the UK.

The banking giant tops this year's list of the 100 most inclusive employers for LGBT staff from equality charity Stonewall.

While headquartered in London, Lloyds employs hundreds in Wales in its banking network, as well as in call centres at Bridgend and Newport.

The highest ranked business or organisation based in Wales is the National Assembly for Wales in fifth place.

Stonewall said its workplace equality index attracted a record 439 submissions, with 92,000 staff taking part in a survey about workplace culture.

Ruth Hunt, Stonewall’s chief executive, said: “Lloyds Banking Group is a trailblazer for lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality, and an example of a business that consistently ensures that all staff feel empowered and supported, no matter who they are.

“We’ve learned over the last year that nothing is certain – and this extends to human rights. Corporate organisations have the power to influence this and protect LGBT people, and so it is reassuring to see so many private firms represented in our top 10 and top 100.”
