Diversity of thought is critical to success in modern business. At Schroders we are going a step beyond simply saying that it is important.
Society has been bound by preconceived ideas about what people can and can’t do for far too long. Factors such as gender, social backgrounds, ethnicity and ‘who you know’ have had a greater impact on the professional world than most are ready to admit.
These stereotypes within our business and corporate world need to change. Here at Schroders, we are actively working to improve diversity and inclusion through inclusive policies and training, setting clear targets and championing working practices which allow for inclusion, like informal flexible working that help employees manage their own work/life balance.
Schroders is committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone can thrive. We have 13 global Employee Resource Groups (ERG) that focus efforts across a range of areas including gender, LGBT+, religion, ethnicity, mental health and disabilities and impairment. Recently, we launched an ERG in Singapore, Millenials@Work, to support the needs of our millennial workforce. Through the ERG’s initiatives, we also aim to generate greater synergies across our generational workforce.
Our efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in Asia Pacific have been recognised by a number of awards. We recently bagged the Gold award for Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion at the HR Excellence Awards 2019 in Singapore.
Here at Schroders, we live and breathe Diversity and Inclusion throughout the organisation. That, is what sets us apart.
