Fujitsu named in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women for the second year

Today (24 Apr) it was announced that Fujitsu has been named one of The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2019. This is the second consecutive year Fujitsu has been recognised for its efforts to close the gender pay gap by increasing the visibility of women at technology events and ensuring bias-free inclusive recruitment practices.

 “We’re excited to have been named in the Times Top 50 Employers for Women for the second consecutive year. We believe that improving Fujitsu’s gender balance is vital to producing digital solutions that work well for everyone”, said Wendy Warham, VP Hybrid Infrastructure Services and Networks & Telecoms, EMEIA, DTS, Fujitsu.

“As it is only by creating real organisational change that we can build a more balanced company, we recognise that our future business success depends on attracting, growing and retaining diverse talent, and as part of this, fostering high performing, diverse teams that set us apart from our competitors.”

The list – which celebrates UK employers that are leading the way on gender equality in the workplace – is a benchmarking tool for employers and helps measure their progress in making gender equality a key part of their business strategy.

Fujitsu was recognised for a number of its initiatives including: the implementation of several tools and processes to help build an inclusive and bias free culture, conducting an equal pay audit, followed by a best practice report on how to address the drivers contribution to the gender pay gap, and by launching a reverse mentoring programme to give Fujitsu’s leaders more insight into how they can build a more inclusive culture.

Wendy continued, “We have put in place actions that have started to make a real difference. The next two years will see us accelerate the pace of change, recognising that gender equality in the workplace is not something that can be fixed instantly. To deliver real change we must commit to a big vision that will eradicate Fujitsu UK’s gender pay gap and make Fujitsu the company where everyone can succeed. Achieving this goal will require a systematic shift across how we reward, develop and promote people, integrating gender parity into the way we do business. The message behind my leadership focus is to dramatically speed up progress and ensure everyone understands that gender parity feeds our P&L and underpins our business success”.
