EY named among UK's best big employers

EY has celebrated being named among the leading large employers in Britain.

The professional services firm was ranked 17th in the Sunday Times list of the best big businesses to work for, based on anonymous feedback from its employees. The company also received a one-star accreditation and the 'Giving Something Back' award for its work to support charities and local communities.

Steve Varley, UK and Ireland managing partner and chairman of EY, said this is a "real achievement" and a testament to some of the recent actions the business has taken to improve its diversity and inclusiveness.

Last year, the firm updated its student recruitment process and implemented a 'blind CV' policy. This was credited with driving a 75 percent increase in applications for 2016 student programmes.

The EY Reconnect scheme was launched to help people back into work after a career break, while a dedicated gender expression, identity and transition guide was created to support the transgender community.

"By introducing such progressive policies and initiatives we hope to encourage other businesses to do the same and inspire social change," said Mr Varley.

Maggie Stilwell, managing partner for talent at EY UK and Ireland, added: "We aim to have a leading people culture at EY, in our industry and beyond. To do so we will continue to challenge the status quo, disrupt ourselves and find new ways to cultivate a diverse and inclusive working environment for our people."

Looking at the UK jobs market in general, EY ITEM Club recently noted that, while employment has climbed to a new record high, workers are being affected by slow real-terms pay growth. One of the key reasons for this is higher prices, with CPI inflation recently hitting its highest rate since June 2014.
