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.
More than 7,000 colleagues disclosed a disability in our most recent colleague survey. In the past, employment of disabled people in the UK has focused on making changes to physical infrastructure or working practices. We’ve challenged this assumption, moving the debate away from simply accommodating disabilities to developing talent and providing careers, not just jobs. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to reach their full potential at Lloyds Banking Group, within an environment where every individual feels included, valued and empowered. As part of this journey, we continue to increase the understanding around visible and non-visible disabilities and long term health conditions, and raise awareness of the support available to allow our colleagues to be their best.
We have been recognised as a leading employer for people with disabilities having attained a Gold Standard in the Business Disability Forum’s Disability Standard and Disability Confident Leader status with the department for Work and Pensions.
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 over 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.
Shining a light on female excellence
We’re shining a spotlight on four women who have been delivering great things both for and outside our business. They share how flexible working has helped them to balance their life responsibilities with their professional ones, and the impacts on their career progression and development..
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.
