A recent report unveiled by the Financial Times (FT) has seen the Reed Group ranked 272nd out of 700 for its diversity and inclusion strategies.
As part of the report, 10,000 companies employing at least 250 people in ten European countries were are ranked on the diversity and inclusion of their workplaces. All types of diversity, including gender balance, openness to all forms of sexual orientation, disability and ethnic and social mix were assessed by the FT research partner Statista.

Over 80,000 employees were interviewed across Europe and were asked to rate their own employer as well as other companies. REED (ranked at 272) received a high rating from our employees, in particular for ethnicity, LGBTQ+ and disability. Employees from across the group – Reed Specialist Recruitment, Reed in Partnership and Reed.co.uk - took part in the research.
Catherine Squibb, Reed HR advisor diversity and inclusion, said: “We are delighted that our co-members have praised REED’s progress towards achieving full inclusion at work, leading to us being highlighted as a Diversity Leader 2020 in the Financial Times’ inaugural report. With our Inclusion & Belonging Commitment, we will continue to strive towards everyone feeling a sense of belonging in the workplace.”
REED is committed to creating an inclusive workforce by recognising and understanding each employee’s unique difference and embracing this. Valuing diversity allows us to create a workplace where co-members can be the best they can be each day. Our inclusion strategy consists of a number of initiatives that drive inclusion across our operations.
