Brother recognised for commitment to gender equality

Brother UK has been recognised for its commitment to gender equality and diversity.

The firm has won the Medium Business award at the Northern Power Women Awards, which recognises the steps the company has taken to champion gender equality as it continues to grow its 200-strong workforce.

To ensure balance and progression, Brother conducts monthly workforce reviews, which examine its male/female mix, including an analysis of management roles.

“It was a great pleasure to share the event with a team of colleagues and regional peers who are amongst the many men and women role models transforming business culture and encouraging equality and diversity,” said Louise Marshall, Infrastructure and Shared Services director, at Brother UK.

“Our vision at Brother will remain clear, as we give everyone an equal chance to develop and perform to their highest standard, regardless of factors such as age, gender, disability, sexual orientation or ethnicity, while undertaking regular audits of our workforce to ensure balance and relevance.”

In the last three years, Brother UK has also been awarded a Times Top 100 place to work award and an Investors In People Gold award.

Brother UK is also up for an award in the Peripheral Vendor category at tonight’s (Thursday March 10th) PCR Awards 2016, which takes place at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington.
