RBS has moved up to 13th place in Stonewall’s annual Top 100 employers for lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) employees. It’s the highest position that RBS has ever achieved in the index – up from 32nd last year.

Published in today’s Times newspaper, the Stonewall Top 100 Employers list showcases the best employers for LGBT people. The list is compiled from submissions to the Workplace Equality Index, a robust benchmarking tool used by employers to create LGBT inclusive workplaces.

Now in its thirteenth year, the list celebrates the pioneering efforts of leading organisations to create inclusive workplaces and this year it saw more than 430 entries from organisations across the public, private and third sectors.

Nicholas Crapp, RBS Chief Audit Executive & LGBT Executive Sponsor, commented:

“I am delighted that RBS has made significant further progress in the 2017 Stonewall UK Workplace Equality Index. Achieving 13th position in the Top 100 is our best ever ranking and clearly recognises the progress RBS continues to make in supporting our LGBT colleagues and customers.

Whilst we should celebrate our success, RBS remains determined in its pursuit of inclusion and levelling the playing field for all our colleagues and customers.”
