Company category : Large company
Description of the action
On each floor used by HSBC Luxembourg employees, we will be assigning one toilet as fully inclusive e.g. including open to those who would be uncomfortable in a strictly male/female segragated toilet space.
We have listened to feedback from our employees and understand that for some who are either not heterosexual nor gender binary it can be uncomfortable to use toilet facilities which are typically used by heterosexual employees identified as male or female.
We want to make our employees feel safe and create a truly inclusive environment
We will issue an all staff communication and put signage on each of these restrooms.
Ensuring all staff feel they have a safe space and we as an employer have listened and understand that strict same sex spaces can make some groups uncomfortable.
« To do »
Consider that even if employees don't specifically raise concerns, there are lots of ways that the office environment assumes a typical heterosexual identification in workplace planning and culture. Consider challenging these assumptions and enabling people to feel included
« Not to do »
Don't assume that if people say nothing, there are no concerns. The culture might not yet have developed enough for everyone to feel safe to speak
