Diversity and inclusion awards

Inclusive Employer

We're working hard as an organisation, and in partnership, to encourage best practices in Diversity and Inclusion.

We're delighted Scottish Water was named in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2019 list, which spotlights UK employers who make gender equality a key part of their business strategy, with a commitment to creating inclusive workplace cultures and encouraging women to progress at all levels.

We also achieved the Age Inclusive award at the Herald and GenAnalytics Diversity Awards 2019. This recognises our multi-generational approach to supporting employees across all stages of their working lives, through inclusive policies, initiatives and development opportunities.
