We’re delighted and proud to be included in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women list for the second year in a row.

The Times Top 50 Employers for Women list

The Times Top 50 Employers for Women is a list of the UK organisations that are leading the way in gender equality in the workplace. The list and supplement in The Times is produced in partnership with Opportunity Now, the gender campaign from Business in the Community.

We’ve been included in the list as we’re able to demonstrate that gender equality is an integral part of our business strategy, with consistent commitment to progressing women in the workplace that covers our entire organisation, not just isolated areas.

Massive congratulations to Dean Boyle, from our Leeds Home Shopping Centre, who has been named the winner of the Walmart Associate Talent Search (WATS). His Elvis tribute act beat more than 300 entries from 13 countries – a fantastic achievement!

Back in February this year, Walmart put out a search for colleagues to submit a video highlighting their talent, with a winning prize of attending Shareholders week in June and performing their act.

Dean will join five other winners from across Walmart to perform his act. Speaking of his win, Dean says, “When I was told I’d won, I was blown away. I’m so excited and feel so privileged to be attending Shareholders. It’s a great opportunity, and my family and colleagues are so pleased for me.”
