THE BIG FOUR has made it into The Times’ Top 50 Employers for Women league table with HM Revenue & Customs also making an appearance.
The table, which was published this week, is compiled in partnership with Opportunity Now, a gender equality campaign by Business in the Community.
This is the second year that the top firms and the taxman have made it onto the list. However, in 2011, Ernst & Young and HMRC failed to make an appearance.
Liz Bingham, Ernst & Young’s managing partner for people in the UK & Ireland said: “Diversity is a business imperative. As well as being the right thing to do, we believe that by attracting and retaining the best talent and developing our people, we will ultimately deliver a better service to our clients.
“To be listed as a top employer for women is a tremendous achievement. I’m incredibly proud of the progress we have made to date and am confident that we will continue to innovate in the future.”
