Committed to social mobility

We believe that talent, determination and core values should decide someone's career, not their social or economic background. We are passionate about increasing social mobility, inclusion and diversity, ensuring we remove barriers to recruitment and career progression for those from a less advantaged background.

What we’re doing about it

  • We launched the Social Mobility Pledge to align our mission globally and set out our strategy going forward.
  • We partnered with the Real World Learning Project, upReach, Brightside and Lord Mayor's Appeal - #AllOfMe campaign.
  • We’re driving the recruitment and progression of those from a lower socio-economic background by accessing a wider talent pool and mentorship.
  • We’re capturing and tracking data to enable us to benchmark ourselves, set targets and track progress.
  • We encourage our people to participate in social mobility events all around the world.
  • We celebrate internal role models through our Social Mobility stories.
  • We’re a signatory of the Social Mobility Commission’s Employers’ Index.
  • We’re proud to be one of the Founding Partners of Progress Together, which focuses on driving socio-economic diversity at senior levels across financial services.
