Learning Pool's commitment to diversity and equality earns it a coveted spot on the 2023 UK's Best Workplaces™ for Women list. This recognition reflects its efforts in creating an empowering environment for its entire team, with inclusive policies and practices setting it apart as an exceptional workplace for women.

Unveiled by Great Place to Work® UK, the global authority on workplace culture, the Best Workplaces™ for Women list demonstrates Learning Pool's commitment to fostering a workplace culture where everyone can thrive, regardless of their gender, striving for fair representation of women in the workforce and throughout management.

Learning Pool's comprehensive range of policies and practices, designed to empower women to thrive in the workplace, stand out as a key factor contributing to its recognition as a leading workplace for women. It strives to go above and beyond to support its female employees, offering a raft of flexible working arrangements to help balance personal and professional lives. 

The company also takes great pride in our global mentorship and development programs, specifically tailored to provide women with the tools and opportunities needed to excel and progress in their careers. These initiatives embody its unwavering commitment to empowering women and fostering their professional growth.

Rigorous evaluations of hundreds of employee survey responses were performed by Great Place to Work®  to create the Best Workplaces for Women™ list, with data insights used to benchmark the effectiveness of companies' employee value propositions against actual team experience. Those businesses that achieved the highest scores after evaluation were awarded Best Workplaces for Women™ status. 

An anonymous employee commented in the Trust Index© survey, "Learning Pool truly values the contributions and perspectives of women in the workplace. I feel supported and appreciated, which makes it a fantastic place to work."

Chief Human Resources Officer of Learning Pool, Louise McElvaney, expressed their excitement about the recognition: "At Learning Pool, we believe that a diverse and inclusive workforce is essential for our success.
