The enei Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of organisations that have taken a lead in challenging discrimination and are working inclusively to tap into their talented workforce.
The 'Working Families' award distinguishes Pinsent Masons for its work across its diversity network and within the HR team to support working carers and parents, through initiatives such as Sky, the Family Support Network and PM@PM, to enable the best quality of work-life balance and career development.
Kate Fergusson, Head of Responsible Business at Pinsent Masons commented:
"We recognise that an inclusive culture provides the opportunity for all of our people, whether or not they have parental or caring responsibilities, to be themselves at work and realise their potential. We are committed to maintaining an environment where people with different talents, cultures and outlook benefit from working together. A diverse workforce means our clients benefit from a range of knowledge and experience, and a more innovative work product."
The recognition is further endorsement of Pinsent Masons' market-leading approach to diversity and inclusion. The firm is currently the top-ranked professional services firm in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, and is one of The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2016.
