The Race for Opportunity rankings of 120 compaies, part of a campaign headed by Royal Mail chairman Allan Leighton, shows that only 18 FTSE 100 companies take any kind of action to monitor their progress on ethnic minority employees, customers and suppliers.

Topping the list of racially aware private companies was Lloyds TSB which claimed that sales had risen by as much as 30% in branches where staffing had been changed to reflect the ethnicity of its customers.
