Diversity and inclusion
As we continue to create an inclusive business, the more we understand that inclusion is about fairness and providing opportunities to people that they might otherwise not get. For example, roles are advertised on our intranet, called Yoda, before we publish them externally.
In a truly inclusive culture, initiative comes not just from senior leaders but from everyone at BKL. Mosaic, our impact forum, help us to celebrate our diversity and support our wellbeing through activities, initiatives, information on Yoda and competitions. Here’s an insight.
As well as learning from each other at BKL, other organisations are with us on our inclusion journey. We’ve been working with social mobility charity LTSB (Leadership Through Sport and Business) since they were founded in 2012. We provide an 18-month apprenticeship, which has proved incredibly fulfilling as almost 10% of our employees have come through the LTSB scheme.
External recognition helps us to know that we’re on the right track, so we were proud to be the Taxation Awards 2023 winner for Best Employer in Tax and the Accounting Excellence Awards 2023 winner for Tax Team of the Year.
