Our people are our biggest asset; without their dedication, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Looking after our employees and helping them create the right work-life balance is therefore a top priority. It’s important to us that our people feel valued, included and supported in their professional and personal growth.
These three features lie at the heart of our corporate culture. We firmly believe that by giving each and every one of our employees a voice and embracing different perspectives, we can create an environment in which everyone flourishes. With a thriving and productive workforce, we can achieve great things, not just for our employees, clients and shareholders but wider society too.
Key to our identity as an inclusive place to work are our 13 active employee resource groups. These represent a range of causes including gender equality, disability, mental health, religion and ethnic minorities. Members run events to celebrate their heritage and also work together to raise awareness around challenges that underrepresented groups might face.
With progress on diversity metrics linked to pay outcomes for senior management, we are holding our people accountable for addressing this role representation gap, as well as diversity and inclusion more broadly.
We’re proud of our people polices and the benefits we offer. These vary between jurisdictions to reflect local market practices but they all have the same aim - to help make Schroders the best place for the best people to work.
We’re continuously reviewing our people polices and benefits to make sure they continue to be fair and inclusive.
We’re not just interested in whether our people enjoy their jobs; we want to support their wellbeing too. We do this through our Wellbeing Strategy spanning five key areas: mind, workplace, body, financial and work-life balance.
As signatories to the Mental Health at Work Commitment, we follow a best practice framework from resilience and mental health training, to self-care events and access to trained Schroders mental health first-aiders.
Our Global Employee Assistance Programme also provides access to free independent and confidential support, including short-term counselling.
Our industry-leading Flexible Working Charter is central to our inclusion strategy. It’s designed to empower our people to adopt working practices that best meet the needs of their team, themselves and our clients and wider stakeholders – either externally or internally.

Becoming one of us takes individual talent, the ability to work together, and a passion for putting clients first. With diversity being such an important part of our offer, there's no one Schroders type. But all of us do share a belief in our core values:
We challenge how things are done, anticipate future opportunities and understand that delivering value will take collaboration and a healthy respect for individual skills.
Being good at what we do is a powerful way to create value for all our stakeholders and secure a long-term future for our business.
We are realistic about what we can achieve, but are ambitious too, approaching everything we do with energy and drive. This sits alongside an openness and responsibility to deliver on our promises.
