We are delighted to announce we have been officially named as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women! Our collaborative and welcoming culture is just one of the reasons why employees at Acumen believe it is a great place to work.
In July the 2022 UK’s best workplaces for women list was announced, recognising Acumen among 263 ranked organisations. We are proud to feature in this list, which confirms we are a good workplace for all employees, including women. We are an organisation with a high degree of trust, where employees are able to reach their full potential, no matter who they are or what they do. We support the different identities women hold and ensure their daily experiences are positively and consistently experienced. Furthermore, we recognises the hugely valuable talent pool women represent, and always strive for fair representation of women in our workforce.
The Great Place to Work® UK’s 2022 list showcases the largest collection of Best Workplaces for Women that the UK has ever recognised. Ensuring people aren’t discriminated against, placing positive value on differences, creating fair access and advancement for all, and fostering a sense of value and empowerment in employees is what being a Great Place to Work® is all about.
We strongly believe that through regularly analysing engagement, we are able to identify gaps in employee experiences and take action to close them. At Acumen, we are proud that our work relies on and delivers data and insights for growth. This is no different when it comes to the internal workings of our business, and closely measuring and monitoring engagement helps us on our continuous journey to becoming a stronger organisation.
Our policies and practices for women include flexible working, an enhanced maternity package, the option to be based at home (homer) or office/flexi based (roamer), alongside regular wellbeing weeks and events tailored to our workforce.
"What makes Acumen a great place to work for women is that all employees are given equal opportunities to any other employee - no roles, levels or abilities are judged as being more suited to one gender. So from the women who lead our tech team through to our graduate placement students, all of the women in Acumen know they will get to thrive and build outstanding careers with Acumen."
Tillie Newnham, Head of People Experience
At Acumen, we are proud of our diverse teams and inclusive culture. To us, it means providing equal opportunities for everyone, and creating an environment where employees can bring their authentic selves to work each day. We believe our people and culture are our strongest asset, and a safe environment for them to thrive is important to sustain this. One of our values: ‘Innovate to grow’ perfectly illustrates this, and stands for embracing new and diverse ideas and ways of working in order to continue to grow and develop.
