The first Hampton-Alexander Review published in November 2016 builds on the work of the Davies Review to increase the number of women on FTSE Boards, with an important new focus aimed at improving the representation of women in leadership positions of FTSE 350 companies.
“We encourage those not yet focused on improving the number of women leaders in their organisation, specifically CEOs and HR Directors, to join their peers in taking action now. In doing so, companies not only harness the different perspectives and strong skill set of women in decision making, but also address the significant underemployment of women and costly loss of their skills to British business and the economy”
Sir Philip Hampton and Dame Helen Alexander Chair and Deputy Chair, Hampton-Alexander Review.
The Review has determined a set of five recommendations. The first is a call to action for FTSE CEOs and includes a target for the FTSE 100. The second asks Government to improve the disclosure requirements on listed companies. There are two supporting recommendations for investors and executive search firms and the fifth re-iterates the 33% target for Women on Boards.
