IBM tops Stonewall’s list of 2010 gay-friendly employers

Stonewall’s Top 100 Employers 2010, showcasing Britain’s best employers for lesbian, gay and bisexual people, named IBM as the best place to work in 2010. Hampshire Constabulary came second and Ernst & Young third. The index was compiled using the largest ever survey of lesbian, gay and bisexual employees, with over 7,000 participants

In compiling the Top 100 Employers 2010, Stonewall used an index of key indicators in the largest ever survey of lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) employees, with over 7,000 participants. This consistently revealed that staff satisfaction levels were highest at the top ranking organisations in the Index. Gay staff working at the top 25 workplaces reported a satisfaction level almost 10% higher than workplaces outside the Top 100. Staff were also more likely to disclose their sexual orientation in monitoring exercises at the highest ranking organisations.

The Index revealed IBM as the best place to work in 2010 for LGB people. This is the second time in four years that IBM has been named the most gay-friendly employer. Their success reflects the effectiveness of continual improvement as the minimum score to win a place on the 2010 Top 100 was 10% higher. Second place went to Hampshire Constabulary and Ernst & Young came third. Ernst & Young won the award for Employee Network Group of the Year and Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust was named Most Improved Employer.

Ben Summerskill, Stonewall Chief Executive said: “Gay people are far more likely to buy goods or services from companies they know are gay-friendly. The Index is used by Britain’s 1.7 million gay employees and 150,000 gay university students to decide where to take their talent and skills.”
