“We are huge supporters of wellbeing at work, and supporting LGBT colleagues is a part of that. Home Group’s culture is completely inclusive, and we’re delighted it’s been recognised again!”
Home Group has developed its approach over the last 18 months, through initiatives such as the Gender Reassignment and Transitioning Process.
As a keen supporter of colleague wellbeing, the North-East based company has a number of groups set up to support and promote the diversity of colleagues, through Partners in Pride, Allies Network and Human Library.
