Sapphire Partners were again recognised by the FTSE Women Leaders Review for our search work supporting companies keen to encourage women into board and leadership roles.

The FTSE Women Leaders Review is an independent, business-led framework supported by the Government, which sets recommendations for Britain’s largest companies to improve the representation of Women on Boards and in Leadership positions.

The FTSE Women Leaders Review builds on the excellent work of both the Hampton-Alexander and Davies Reviews over the last 10 years, with the 33% target for Women on Boards being achieved in the aggregate for the FTSE 350 at the end of 2020, and the Leadership just falling short of the target at 29%.

The first report, including the new recommendations was published on 22 February 2022.

Sapphire Partners was recognised by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills for our work promoting women non-executives in the recent accreditation process of executive search firms supporting the voluntary code of conduct. Sapphire was one of the early signatories to the voluntary code and were active in crafting revisions to the code in 2014. We are proud of the work we do helping our clients recruit exceptional candidates: in the last four years 60% of our placements have been women.
