Yesterday we took a moment to stop, reflect and most of all celebrate with the Wickes team as we officially became a standalone business. We shared our proudest moments, had celebrations in our stores and distribution centres (covid secure of course), and even hosted lots of virtual activities including yoga, joke creation workshops, and mind reading shows. Special guests, Bush and Richie from the home time show on Absolute Radio also joined us to host our very own Big Wickes Quiz!  It left us all a bit teary-eyed seeing our colleagues celebrate a momentous moment, and sharing their stories. Our colleagues really do make Wickes, Wickes.

We’re thrilled to announce that we have been shortlisted for the British LGBT awards as a top 10 Inclusive Employer! The British LGBT Awards, with Founding Partner NatWest, was created to showcase individuals and organisations that have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the LGBT+ community. We’re so proud of our LGBT+ network, and all the work they do to help us become a more diverse and inclusive workplace, where everyone can be themselves. We’ve come a long way over the last few years, and still have more work to do, but with our commitment to all of our D&I groups, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.

International Transgender Day of Visibility celebrates transgender people and raises awareness of discrimination. At Wickes our LGBT+ committee marked today by sharing the changes we’re making as a business to be a more diverse and inclusive place to work, so our colleagues can be their true authentic selves. From updated HR policies, new titles on our HR system to gender-neutral toilets as part of our store refit programme. We’ve also shared what it means to identify as a trans person, selfie pledges to show support, and some really interesting colleague perspectives, you can read Kit Rayne’s below.
