Top 50 organisations for female employment

- Leadership - Apr 22, 2016

Businesses and organisations across many industries have made it in to the top 50 employers for women, a study released by The Times newspaper. 

From Accenture and HSBC to Shell and Sky, many of the businesses on the list have a wide presence across the continent, helping women in the workplace by promoting more to senior roles, helping single parents and encouraging cultural change among many other initiatives.

Public sector organisations also feature, including the Home Office and MI5. The UK armed forces are also recognised.

While large organisations are doing positive work to enhance female employment, it is still apparent that women entrepreneurs are being stifled by domestic pressures which hold them back from running their own enterprises.
