The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2022

Business in the Community, The Prince’s Responsible Business Network, has today published the list of companies who have been named in The Times Top 50 employers for Women for 2022. 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 Times Top 50 aims to recognise employers who embed gender equality across all levels of their organisations, and while a lot of progress has been made, evidence shows that the pandemic and the cost of living crisis have had a disproportionate impact on women.

 This year’s applicants were closely assessed on the work they do to remove the drivers that enforce gender inequality, from flexible working and family-friendly policies to pay, reward and progression. BITC also included further assessment of this year’s applicants to incorporate the lived experience of women employees by asking what areas they feel need to be improved.

Katy Neep, Gender Equality Campaign Director at Business in the Community, said,

“The COVID-19 pandemic and the soaring cost of living are just some of the worldwide events that have had a disproportionate impact on women and are proof of how far we have yet to go on gender equality. Now is the time to push for further action, but without commitment from all employers, our goal to eradicate the inequalities gap and create truly inclusive workplaces for all women will only be achieved by some businesses, not all.

“The Times Top 50 gives us hope that we are making strong progress in our aim towards gender equality and in our 40th year we call on all employers to be bolder, braver and faster in achieving that goal.

“This year’s application process was the most competitive we have ever seen. These employers haven’t stopped when it comes to supporting women at work and they are a prime example of what business can achieve when they commit to making gender inequality a thing of the past.” 

Caroline Nokes MP, Chair of the Women and Equalities Committee said,

“It is essential that employers focus on eradicating gender inequality in the workplace and I take pride in knowing that these businesses have achieved so much to make work an equal place for all women. While there is still much to do, I congratulate these employers for their accomplishments in advancing the case for equal pay, progression and flexible working policies that support women in work today.”
