LONDON, 2016-Apr-25 — /Travel PR News/ — Enterprise Rent-A-Car has been named as a leader in workplace gender equality by being included in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women for the 11th consecutive year. The unranked alphabetical list is published in partnership with Business in the Community, the Prince’s Responsible Business Network, as part of the charity’s Responsible Business Week.
Kathryn Nawrockyi, Gender Equality Director at Business in the Community, said: “Huge congratulations to Enterprise on being named in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2016 – the process was highly competitive so they should be extremely proud of their success. They have demonstrated a commitment to fundamentally changing workplace processes and cultures to make them inclusive to all, benefitting women and men at every level in their organisation, and I hope they inspire other employers to do the same.”
Emma Tucker, Deputy Editor of The Times, said: “The Times is pleased to celebrate Business in the Community’s 25 years of campaigning for gender equality by publishing a special report to mark its 2016 list of the Top 50 Employers for Women. The supplement will highlight the advances these 50 organisations have made in increasing opportunities and creating working environments where women are free to reach their full potential and also explore those areas where more needs to be done.”
Khaled Shahbo, Enterprise Rent-A-Car Managing Director, UK & Ireland, said: “This achievement is a testament to the hard work and resolve of our teams across the UK to ensure that our actions live up to one of our core values: that our doors are open to anyone. Gender equality is one of the major challenges – and opportunities – facing business today. Being recognised by The Times for the past 11 years as a great place for women to work is very important to our business and is important to me. As a father to two daughters, equality of opportunity is something that I value tremendously, and I am very proud of the work our team has done.”
The Times Top 50 Employers for Women list involves a comprehensive submission process managed by the gender equality campaign at Business in the Community. All organisations within the Top 50 have demonstrated that gender equality is a key part of their business strategy, with consistent commitment to creating workplaces and cultures that are inclusive of women from entry level through to senior leadership.

Responsible business is about how a business makes its money not just how it spends its profit. It is about managing growth responsibly while reducing dependency on natural resources. It is about how the business operates as an employer, supplier and customer and how as a neighbour it helps to create vibrant communities where people can flourish.
With the encouragement of strong leadership, we are proving responsible business can be a force for positive change – and that tackling social and environmental issues can return financial value.
We are a business-led, issue focused charity with more than 30 years’ experience of mobilising business. We engage thousands of businesses through our programmes driven by our core membership of over 800 organisations from small enterprises to global corporations. www.bitc.org.uk
