Transgender guidance

New government guidance on recruiting and retaining transgender staff was published last month. 

Recruiting and retaining transgender staff was produced in partnership with Inclusive Employers. It aims to provide employers with practical advice, suggestions and ideas on the recruitment and retention of transgender employees and potential employees. 

Trans people often leave their jobs before transitioning and often take lower paid jobs when they return to the workplace, often because of the possible discrimination they imagine they will face if they stay in their place of work. This can result in a loss of expertise and investment for their original employer.

It is also a useful guide for the managers of trans staff and for trans staff themselves.
