Getting the balance right: International Women’s Day 2019


The theme of International Women’s Day 2019 is Balance for Better. We’re encouraging people to give a shout out to women who have influenced their lives in a positive way.

How we support women in the workplace

HM is proud that:

  • almost 50% of our female staff have flexible work arrangements.

According to the 2018 SLA Diversity Data, these figures are above the industry average. Meet more women in HM by visiting the Our People page.

Our culture encourages women to progress and our approach to women within and outside of the workplace is to promote the visibility of women, and celebrate their achievements.

This is not just for International Women’s Day, this is simply how we do business here!
