Home Instead named as a Diversity Leader

Home Instead’s commitment to equality and diversity has once again been recognised in the Financial Times’ annual Diversity Leaders ranking.

We are delighted to have moved up a place this year to rank an impressive 5th in the healthcare sector, making us the highest scoring home care company in Europe!

The survey of more than 100,000 employees across the continent, conducted by research company Statista and the FT, assesses employees’ perceptions of companies’ inclusiveness and efforts to promote diversity.

This year’s survey was stricter than ever before with only companies like us, which have a written policy or public commitment to diversity and inclusion, given the opportunity to be ranked.

Our fantastic achievement reflects the inclusiveness that is inherent at Home Instead, particularly across our franchise offices which celebrate and champion equality and diversity.  We are proud that our employees are unique, just like our wonderful array of home care clients across the UK.

Many of our offices mark occasions such as Pride Month, International Women’s Day, Older Person’s Day, plus a variety of religious celebrations throughout the calendar year.  These are embraced and enjoyed by colleagues and clients alike.

Martin Jones, CEO UK and International at Home Instead UK comments: “I am delighted that our commitment to diversity is seeing us continue to move up the annual rankings as a Diversity Leader.  A culture of inclusivity permeates every aspect of our business and we are delighted that our employees recognised this when surveyed.  We are proud of representing the UK home care industry within the healthcare sector ranking and will continue to champion diversity as our business further expands.”
