Today, Dublin Bus received an award for its Gender Transition Policy at the CIPD Ireland Awards under the Diversity and Inclusion category. Winners were announced at a special awards ceremony which took place at the InterContinental Hotel, Dublin.

The Dublin Bus Workplace Gender Transition Policy and Guidelines, devised in consultation with Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI), include recommendations for employees, managers and the Human Resources Department on how to provide a welcoming and supportive environment for employees transitioning. 

The CIPD is the professional body for HR and people development, responsible for championing better work and working lives. The CIPD HR Awards reward and celebrate outstanding achievement in people management and development, honouring the valuable contribution that HR and Learning and Development make to the success of an organisation.

Dublin Bus Chief Executive, Ray Coyne said “Dublin Bus is one of the first organisations to introduce a policy of this kind. This is the latest stop in our ongoing journey to ensure a progressive workplace and wider society. This project will drive us to continue moving with the times and anticipating change within HR activities”.

Dublin Bus is the largest public transport provider in Ireland carrying 139 million customers in 2017. Dublin Bus employs 3,550 people and is considered to be one of the most progressive for inclusivity and supporting diversity among its workforce. Its work to date in this area has been put forward as a case study for best practice in relation to workplace diversity by the European Commission in Europe, and the IMI/CIPD in Ireland.
