TalkTalk , the UK’s leading value-for-money connectivity provider, serves 4 million consumers and businesses nationwide and has ranked 9th on the Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers Index for the first time.

Committed to offering great value and inclusivity in the fibre revolution, CEO Dame Tristia Harrison emphasises the importance of creating an inclusive workplace. “We work hard to create a workplace where everyone can be themselves. We are proud of the culture that we have created within TalkTalk over the last 20 years. Our company values – we care, we challenge, we commit – are central to every decision we make and allow us to ensure consistency across the group. Everybody’s experiences are different, and so we acknowledge that creating and nurturing an inclusive workplace is a continuous process and a responsibility for each of us. We continue to challenge ourselves – for our team, our customers and our local community – to improve, evolve and influence. We have seven established employee-run networks with more in the process of being created. These communities significantly impact our culture, educating and raising awareness while celebrating all colleagues from the moment they join us. As the industry evolves, I look forward to meeting and working with more leaders, peers and advocates, and playing a part in the journey to making tech a more inclusive sector.”

Dame Tristia highlights continuous efforts to improve inclusivity, with employee-run networks and partnerships with charities and community events. The company actively supports and encourages women in the technology sector, showcasing achievements in leadership diversity and collaborating with schools across the region to educate young women about the available routes into a technology career. Notably, the TalkTalk North West Women in Tech Awards, having just celebrated its third year, underscores TalkTalk’s dedication to recognising women’s contributions in the evolving tech industry.
