We are delighted to announce that University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW), one of the region’s largest employers, is the latest organisation to become a signatory of Bristol Women in Business Charter (BWIBC).
The Trust will be developing three main Charter goals: improving a flexible and agile workforce to support retention, ensuring we are an employer of choice in the city; continuous improvement in talent and educationally support career pathways through the organisation; and continuing the positive work to close the gender pay gap at all levels.
Emma Wood, UHBW Chief People Officer and Deputy Chief Executive Officer, said: “More than 75% of our Trust’s 15,000 strong workforce are female. In signing up to the Bristol Women in Business Charter, we are committed to building on the work we already do in UHBW to make sure our Trust is a great place to work for everyone.
“Inclusion and belonging are at the heart of our commitment to offering the best employment experience possible to all our colleagues. I look forward to collaborating with other charter members to share experiences and learn from each other.”
Welcome on board UHBW. Looking forward to supporting you in 2024!
