Suffolk Police retains position as one of UK’s top employers of lesbian, gay and bisexual staff
Suffolk Police has again been ranked in Britain’s top 100 employers for lesbian, gay and bisexual staff.
The Workplace Equality Index, developed by the gay equality charity Stonewall, has this year ranked Suffolk Constabulary in 55th place in its index of the Top 100 employers.
Although this is a fall of six places on the 2012 placing, it is still a rise of 107 places since its first submission to the index in 2008.
Suffolk Police is also the fourth highest constabulary in the country in the Workplace Equality Index.
Now in its ninth year, the Workplace Equality Index was developed by Stonewall to challenge Britain’s leading employers to create an inclusive working environment for lesbian, gay and bisexual employees.
The index is free to enter and is the definitive national benchmark for employers to measure their own performance in relation to other agencies.
Submissions are assessed against 25 questions across eight criteria.
