“At Meridian, we’re committed to creating a workplace that is representative of the communities we live and operate in, and a place that allows our people to thrive. Our Belonging Strategy is built around five pillars - inclusion and respect; gender; ethnicity; accessibility; and flexibility and is currently being refreshed to strengthen our commitment.
With around half of the Meridian Group already identifying as women, two of our core focuses are to increase the number of women we have in senior leadership roles and in our electricity generation business. To achieve a more-balanced gender representation at all levels, we have set a target that for new employees hired each year, we’ll aim for 45% of these appointees identifying as women, 45% men, and the remaining 10% being of any gender.
Meridian is proud to have gained both the Accessibility and Rainbow Tick and has remained an accredited member of the Gender Tick programme. More recently Meridian has put its support behind the Mind the Gap initiative.”
