Our people strategy

We call our people strategy “Recognising High Performance”. It defines how we aim to attract, nurture and empower teams of talented people, recognised internally and externally as the best at what they do. Our people are our greatest asset and central to our success. You’ll find this means (among other things) we are committed to:

  • Building a collaborative and inclusive culture where everyone can flourish
  • Attracting a diverse range of people in terms of skills, culture and approach
  • Decentralised decision making
  • Focusing on high performance by individuals, teams and the whole firm
  • Investing in and empowering the best support.

We deliver our Recognising High Performance strategy in many ways; some relate to our Reward polices, our investment in Career Development and our approach to Diversity and Corporate Social Responsibility.

Career development

Developing people is at the heart of what we do. With learning comes greater confidence and we believe confidence is one of the keys to business success. When you join us (and if you move roles or assignments), we’ll make sure that you get the best-in-class training and support you need to perform at your best, complementing a variety of work opportunities with personalised development support.
