Dorset Developer Awarded for Equality
3:02pm 4th February 2013
A Dorset Housing developer has been recognised as a "gay friendly" organisation.
Magna Housing has risen 48 places in the Workplace Equality Index 2013, a table put together by charity Stonewall.
A confidential staff survey found the developers to be a fair and inclusive place for lesbian, gay and bisexual employees.
In their feedback to Magna, Stonewall commented to Magna that 'the 2013 Index had been their most competitive to date with submissions from 376 employers. The standard of entry had risen significantly this year and Magna had done particularly well to climb 48 places in the ranking.'
Magna director, Debby Wheatley, commented, 'We want our staff to feel confident to be themselves and develop to reach their full potential.'
