BAT named as FT Diversity Leader again

27 November 2020

Diversity and inclusion are a key part of BAT’s heritage, which goes back 120 years.

So we are proud to have been named as Diversity Leaders by the Financial Times for a second consecutive year.

The prestigious FT Diversity Leaders report recognises the top 850 companies across 16 European countries that have achieved a diverse and inclusive workplace. Areas assessed include: Gender balance; sexual orientation; and a workforce comprised of an ethnic and social mix that reflects wider society.

Attracting and retaining an increasingly diverse workforce, and providing a welcoming, inclusive working environment is a key driver in our transformation journey to build A Better Tomorrow.

And we have set ourselves new diversity and inclusion ambitions to achieve by 2025. These include:

  • Increasing the number of women in senior leadership teams to 40%
  • Increasing the number of women in management roles to 45%
  • Achieving a 50% spread of nationalities within key leadership teams to better mirror BAT’s consumer base.
