Hachette UK has been nominated for two HR awards shortlists recognising its Ethnicity Pay Gap report and flexible working policies.
The publishing house was nominated at the Global Equality & Diversity (GED) Awards in its Inclusive Workplace Award category. It got the nod after publishing its Ethnicity Pay Gap report in April, becoming one of just a handful of firms to do so.
It is part of a six-strong shortlist featuring firms including Acas and IBM. Winners of the prize will be announced at the GED Conference on 17th October.
There is also a shortlisting in the Top Employer Awards run by website workingmums.co.uk. Hachette and Pearson were both nominated alongside seven other companies for the Innovation in Flexible Working category. Winners will be revealed on 5th November.
Hachette UK’s HR director, Melanie Tansey, said: “Our approach to flexible working and the publication of our first Ethnicity Pay Gap report and action plan are part of our wider ambition to attract, recruit and retain the best talent from all backgrounds. We are delighted to be in such good company on these shortlists. It’s thrilling and rewarding for the work we are doing to be recognised in this way.”
