You belong here
At Schroders Personal Wealth, diversity and inclusion are integral to our culture and we are dedicated to creating an inclusive environment for all our colleagues. We believe that our workforce should reflect the vast diversity of the communities we serve, and that diverse voices should be elevated and intentionally integrated across all levels at Schroders Personal Wealth. We embrace individuality and encourage diversity of identity, experience, and thought. We actively strive for inclusive behaviours and actions across our company and our work, including making appropriate adjustments for disabilities, long-term health conditions or neurodiversities to ensure equal opportunities for all. By promoting these values, we are committed to creating a positive work experience by encouraging a sense of belonging where everyone, irrespective of difference and background, can make an impact and reach their potential.
We prioritise a wellbeing culture for colleagues to thrive and create a sense of belonging at work and we encourage speaking openly about mental health to dispel the stigma and break barriers to understanding. We are committed to having clear, fair and transparent policies that support and encourage employee well-being and recognise that the whole well-being of our colleagues really matters. We provide this through our strategic focus on four pillars of Physical, Mental, Financial and Social wellbeing and provide access to benefits and partnerships such as EAP, Workplace Adjustments, Occupational Health & BUPA. We encourage and empower a proactive, colleague led approach to wellness, support, interventions and training with role models across all levels of the organisation.
Gender pay gap
Our vision is for all colleagues, whatever their role or circumstance, to have the resources and flexibility they need to achieve what’s important to them, both inside and outside work. We are committed to doing more to ensure all colleagues have equal opportunities, for example, through promoting agile working, supporting career progression of those with high potential, and being certain our recruitment process leaves no room for bias. Measuring and addressing the gender pay gap plays a huge part.
The gender pay gap is the measure of the difference in average pay between all men and all women across an organisation, expressed as a percentage. It is regardless of their role, seniority, length of service or location and any other differentiating factors. It helps us to identify what is working as well as addressing where more action is needed to support and empower women as we grow our business. This is our first Gender Pay Report as a business, and we are committed to monitoring the numbers closely over the coming years, and doing more to improve gender diversity.
