Diversity at GlaxoSmithKline
- Average rating for Diversity, based on 36 reviews8.1 / 10
Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.
There is not much to say on this, especially because this is a global company, there are people from all different ethnic and religious backgrounds as well as from different sexual orientations and genders. I have never seen any hint of bias in any way, shape of form towards anyone in my time here.
Workplace is quite diverse. Opportunities for maternity leave.
Diverse range of people. Retention is high and the company does try to cater for everyone.
Employees in this workplace are all kinds of backgrounds and nationalities which is great to see, also of various ages. Women are treated as equally to men which is great and have equal decision making power.
Most demographics are represented. Maternity leave is flexible and many people return to their previous jobs or elect to work part-time initially.
GSK is very diverse and encourages acceptance of all employees. For example pride parades advertisements are circulated.
GSK is known for having great mat leave options. There is a good mix of men and women and it is somewhat ethnically diverse.
All employees are able to apply for Alternative Work Arrangements to accommodate their personal situation. I haven't seen data on promotion and pay and as such cannot comment in that regard.
GSK is a very diverse work place as is is a global organisation. This means that they value the perspectives of different cultures and also do not discriminate based on gender, age, or parental leavers.
What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
Was a previous focus in terms of providing internships to indigenous and lower socio-economic applicants but has waned with time.
As long as you have the right qualifications for the job or can show that you are capable of fulfilling a role, you have just as good a chance as anyone else.
There are standing desks for employees with back troubles.
GSK works alongside different universities as they offer internships to students. They do not discriminate based on people's backgrounds.
