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.
are proud to be associated
feel they are treated with fairness and respect
feel that Schroders recognises and values diversity among its employees
At Schroders, we think it’s vital that we look after the whole person. We’re not just interested in whether our employees enjoy their jobs; we want to support their health and wellbeing too.
We do this in a number of ways. We provide a comprehensive calendar of events across five key areas: mind, workplace, body, financial and work-life balance. We also offer a Global Employee Assistance Programme to help ensure employees are provided with access to free independent and confidential support, including short-term counselling.
There is extensive support for mental health; from resilience and mental health training to self-care events available to our employees all over the world. We also have 40 trained mental health first-aiders across the organisation. Towards the end of 2019, we signed the new Mental Health at Work Commitment, which provides a framework of standards to create a working environment for employees to thrive.
It’s our aim to be the employer of choice in the investment management sector and we are proud of what our people think of life at Schroders.
Becoming one of us takes individual talent, the ability to work together, and a passion for putting clients first. With diversity such an important part of our offer, there's no one Schroders type. But all of us do share a belief in five core values - our guiding principles:
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.
Enabling everyone to work at their best contributes to our overall success as a business and we continue to focus on developing careers, ensuring inclusivity and mental wellbeing.
We endeavour to improve the futures of those around us and support programmes and initiatives that have lasting impact.
