About Us

Inclusion and diversity is about everyone at Lloyds Banking Group. In fact, it’s central to our success. We're proud to say that not only do people with disabilities bring unique strengths and passions to Lloyds Banking Group; they are integral to us becoming the best bank for all our customers.

We want our business to reflect the communities we serve, so when it comes to recruitment, finding the best talent from the widest possible applicant pool makes perfect sense. It means we can better serve and meet the needs of our customers. Above all, we encourage everyone to embrace their passions, and be themselves. By being able to bring our authentic selves to work, we inspire creativity, drive, and wellbeing, and engage more successfully, as a team.

Our colleague network ‘Access’ is for our disabled colleagues and interested non-disabled colleagues. The network is focused as much on awareness as it is on helping disabled employees embrace their uniqueness.

Access is the Group's disability network, run by our employees, for their colleagues. The network has over 4,000 members including people with disabilities and long-term health conditions, as well as internal disability advocates. It's an inclusive network that's created a tightknit community of friends who are passionate about disability, and who mentor and support each other. Plus, it helps to share best practice across our business, and increase awareness of disability.

Did you know?

In our latest 2016 employee engagement survey, 5,779 people disclosed a disability or long-term health condition. And, as the Group potentially serves 6 million customers with disabilities, it's a clear business case for embracing even greater diversity within our business.

We recognise that everyone is different. We value the unique differences that each of our colleagues bring to work every day. Together, we make Lloyds Banking Group stronger and the best bank for customers.  We’re working hard to build an inclusive bank that reflects the diversity of modern Britain.
