Enterprise Rent-A-Car has been recognised for its leadership on workplace gender equality by being named on The Times list of Top 50 Employers for Women 2017.
The Times Top 50 Employers for Women is published in partnership with Business in the Community, the Prince’s Responsible Business Network, as part of the charity’s Responsible Business Week.
Enterprise has been featured on the Times Top 50 Employers for Women every year since it was first compiled in 2005.
The alphabetical and unranked list acknowledges UK employers that are making gender equality a key part of their business strategy, with consistent commitment to creating inclusive workplace cultures and progressing women in the workplace that covers their entire organisation at all levels.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car was recognised for inclusion because of its continuing focus on gender diversity as part of its business strategy, and for its success in driving gender parity.
Initiatives such as Drive, a quarterly employee magazine focused on gender issues and the company’s award winning diversity scorecard which supports managers across the country in ensuring diversity and inclusion within their own business.
Leigh Lafever-Ayer, Enterprise Rent-A-Car HR director UK and Ireland, said: “Being included in this year’s Top 50 is a very special milestone for Enterprise. We have felt truly honoured to be featured in this list for 12 years, since it began in 2005.
“Ensuring all parts of our business are diverse and inclusive is a day-to-day responsibility for Enterprise managers. Inclusion in the Top 50 is a reminder that we are doing the right things.
“At every branch and location our managers have a lot of autonomy to run their businesses. We support them to ensure diversity and inclusion is at the heart of everything they do, so that we attract and retain the best talent to deliver exceptional customer service.
“As a company that only promotes from within, attracting and retaining the best diverse talent is vital to ensure we have the best team at every level.”
