Inclusion and diversity
At Lloyds Banking Group, inclusion is central to our business success. We know that colleagues who can show up to work as themselves are those that can bring their best, and we are proud to support our colleagues through all stages of their journey.
We have an inclusive and open culture with a scale that creates a vast range of roles and opportunities. We offer a wealth of options for continual personal growth in an organisation that embraces diversity of talent, creativity, skills and thinking amongst our teams.
From creating the right work-life balance, making time to invest in what’s important in an open and agile working environment, to supporting life changes and ensuring we invest in talent to encourage our people to build a career to match their ambitions.
Our LGBT+ colleague network, Rainbow, plays a pivotal role in our approach, and with over 5,000 members and supporters, is one of the largest networks of its kind in the UK. For 10 years Rainbow has been committed to connecting, developing and supporting our LGBT+ colleagues across the Group. Rainbow was named a highly commended network by Stonewall in 2019.
"You’re not just improving systems, you’re changing lives.”
Anthony first joined us as part of an IT graduate scheme. He has since been featured on the FT’s Top Future Leaders list, and is an inclusivity champion at Lloyds Banking Group.
"I love our LGBT+ network and what it has to offer."
Dan, a member of the Group's Rainbow network talks about why the network is so important to him, and how they are always striving to make it more inclusive.
LGBT+ and Ally Role Models
We've launched our 2020 LGBT+ and Ally Role Model list, which shines a light on our colleagues within the Group who've been nominated for their outstanding impact towards LGBT+ diversity and inclusion.
Support for transgender colleagues
We are committed to providing a safe and supportive working environment for all colleagues and the way in which they wish to express their gender identity. We have a specialist support team who have received specific training and are experts in the field of transgender and transitioning at work. In 2016, we were the first UK-owned company to extend our Private Medical Benefit to include gender dysphoria.
Our charitable partnerships
Our four independent charitable Foundations are critical to our vision of tackling social disadvantage. We partner with local charities to help overcome complex social issues and rebuild lives.
Inclusion and Diversity
Together, we make Lloyds Banking Group stronger and the best bank for customers. We’re working hard to build an inclusive bank that reflects the diversity of modern Britain.
