E.ON has been recognised as one of the UK’s top inclusive employers for the fourth year running as part of The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List.

As the only energy supplier to be named on the list, E.ON has continually improved its ranking year-on-year and has been named in the top 25 most inclusive employers in the UK in 2020.

The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List showcases leading organisations working across all strands of diversity and promoting inclusion across all protected characteristics, throughout each level of employment.

Michael Lewis, Chief Executive of E.ON UK, said: “We’re really proud to be named as one of the Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers for the fourth year running.

“At E.ON we’re committed to offering an inclusive culture, where everyone can be themselves at work, feel valued and can achieve their full potential and this year this has been more important than ever, with colleagues having to adapt to new ways of working in a challenging environment.

“We’re continuously looking at ways we can continue to integrate inclusion into everything we do and so it’s great to be recognised for our hard work and commitment in this area.”

E.ON’s position on the list is testament to the commitment of the company to offering an inclusive culture and for the continuous drive across the organisation to ensure diversity and inclusion at all levels across the organisation.

Paul Sesay, Founder and CEO of The Inclusive Companies Awards, said: “This year, more than any other, Inclusive Companies have seen a shift in the inclusion approach of organisations participating in the Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List.

“Companies featured on this year’s list have felt the importance of ensuring individual voices are heard and standing up as responsible employers against discrimination and inequality. Those who ranked are on a continuous journey but have made it their mission to advocate for inclusive workplaces where everyone feels empowered to be the very best they can be”.

To further demonstrate this commitment, E.ON joined the POWERful Women’s Energy Leaders’ Coalition in September this year, which along with other organisations from across the energy sector aims to improve gender diversity and inclusion within their own organisations and across the UK energy sector as a whole.

To ensure the company has the right people to meet the future needs of the energy industry and its diverse customer base, E.ON has delivered an Inclusive Leadership training programme to all senior leaders across the organisation over the past 12 months. The training is aimed at giving senior leaders the knowledge of why equality, diversity and inclusion are important to the business and their teams, equipping them with the right tools to be able to lead the organisation inclusively.
