Merseyrail proud to receive a Chamber award

Wed, December 18th, 2019

Jane English, the People Director at Merseyrail, said:

Merseyrail, members of Liverpool Chamber were joint winners of the Chamber’s Equality and Diversity Award 2019. Sponsored by the Chamber, the award recognised those businesses who have actively demonstrated that they are putting equality and diversity at the heart of their business to benefit both their own staff and the customers they serve.

The Chamber was particularly impressed by the initiatives to provide opportunities for jobs and training in the industry to people in disadvantaged communities, particularly young people, supported by strong development programmes. Celebrating diversity within the organisation was also a key theme and we were particularly impressed by Merseyrail’s “Inclusive Me” programme.

Jane English, the People Director at Merseyrail, said: 

“At Merseyrail we are committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity amongst our workforce, so to win this award alongside TransPennine Express was an absolute pleasure. People should be able to bring their best self to work without worrying about discrimination or not being able to be themselves and we work hard to ensure that this is the case.”
