Operator among top-20 UK FTSE-listed enterprises

Paddy Power Betfair has been named amongst the top-20 UK FTSE-listed enterprises with the highest proportion of female employees in senior management and governance positions.

Published this month, the Hampton-Alexander review titled ‘FTSE Women Leaders Report’ assesses the corporate structures and opportunities for female employees within 350 FTSE-listed enterprises.

The report will form part of Lord Mervyn Davies' ongoing target of diversifying UK corporate structures which has set a five-year target of recording a 33% female appointment level within FTSE boards. 

Recently merged Paddy Power Betfair, has already reached the Davies target by having a 33% female representation within its governance appointments. The operator registers in fifteenth place amongst the UK FTSE 100's most diverse workplaces.

Paddy Power Betfair management acknowledged the firm’s high listing on the Hampton-Alexander review issuing the following statement on its company LinkedIn page:

“While we may have been out in our predictions for the White House, we’ve worked hard to make sure our own house is in order. In fact, we’re delighted to announce we’ve been named one of the Top 20 companies in the FTSE 100 for having the highest proportion of females at a senior level.”

Totally Gaming Says: This will be significant news for Paddy Power Betfair as the company continues its ongoing integration. Diversification of workforce has been highlighted as a key component for technology driven companies, and will likely make Paddy Power Betfair more appealing as an industry operator to a wider public audience.
