RBS has been ranked 27th in the Stonewall Top 100 Employers index


2015 is the third year running that RBS has improved upon its ranking in the prestigious Stonewall Workplace Equality Index; moving from 97th place in 2013, to 40th place in 2014, and achieving 27th place in 2015. This is the best ranking RBS has achieved in the 11 years that the index has been published.

Alongside achieving a personal best, RBS was also recognised as one of the top employers in Scotland and one of the top ten employers in the 2015 Global index. The RBS Rainbow Network (our LGBT employee led network) was also highly commended for their work over the year.  

Marjorie Strachan, RBS Head of Inclusion, commented “This is great news. We are very pleased to be recognised for our efforts in building a more inclusive bank for our customers and colleagues. To have ranked our personal best in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index shows that those efforts are making a meaningful difference.”
