Stonewall, the pressure group for gay rights, has named Ernst & Young the
best gay-friendly employer in the accountancy profession.
Equality Index identified the firm for approach to employees but also gave
the firm a special award for its gay,lesbian and bisexual network.
The firm was named third in the national benchmarking for the UK’s top 100
employer’s for gay and lesbian staff.
Scott Halliday, UK and Ireland managing partner said: “To be benchmarked as
one of the UK’s most diverse and inclusive organisations is a huge achievement
and recognises the business imperative of creating a work environment where our
people are able to be themselves. We want Ernst & Young to be a place where
all our people have the potential to thrive and succeed.”
