The Times Top 50 Employers for Women
Now in its twelfth year, Business in the Community (BITC) celebrates employers who have prioritised gender equality in the workplace with the publication of The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2022: Taking action on gender equality.
Despite the ongoing challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and the cost of living crisis, The Times Top 50 list shows that employers are acting in ways that are driving progress towards gender equality. We want to recognise and celebrate those organisations making progress on issues that are known to affect gender equality through strategy, policies and culture.

Policy to practice: Appraising the lived experience of women
This year was the most competitive in the list’s history, with the highest number of applicant organisations. Entrants were closely assessed on what they are doing to remove the drivers that enforce gender inequality. This year BITC included a further appraisal of the lived experience of women employees to examine the translation between policy and practice. After three independent rounds of blind assessment, a tie for the fiftieth place has led to 51 organisations being included on this year’s list.

A note on terminology
We use the term woman to include all people who self-identify as women and engage with their current or prospective employers as such. When we use the term gender equality we take this to mean equality for all genders and those who do not identify as a gender, for example, non-gender conforming, gender fluid or non-binary individuals.
About Business in the Community’s work on gender equality
Achieving a truly gender-balanced workforce means employers must recruit and progress the best talent, irrespective of gender. The commercial imperative for gender equality is clear. It enhances employee engagement, boosts productivity, meets the diverse needs of customers and suppliers, and improves brand reputation.
Make your workplace truly gender equal
BITC’s Route Map to a More Gender Equal Future outlines how businesses should protect and, where possible, accelerate gender equality at work. Follow the eight recommendations, from flexible work to transparency on how pay is set, to create a fairer workplace for everyone.
BITC is calling on employers to transform the way we think about combining paid work with care, to build a working culture that is in tune with the employees of today and tomorrow. Only when we do this can we hope to create a truly equal working world, where everybody who wants or needs to can care. Download our report Who Cares? Transforming how we combine work with caring responsibilities to learn more.
