Financial Services - Gender Diversity
The challenges businesses face around achieving the right gender balance seem to be in the media every other day but shocking statistics underline the worrying issues around female pay disparity.
It’s a worrying trend so what is actually being done to solve the issue?At PageGroup, we have worked with financial services organisations for forty years and for the first time our data for Financial Services shows that we are placing proportionally more women. Traditionally, female hires have declined at the higher salary levels which is still the case but at PageGroup 40% of our hires into Financial Services at £130K+ were women.
Why we are best placed to help?
At PageGroup we believe that in order to offer valuable advice and guidance on important issues, we need to speak from our own experience and be committed to providing a diverse, open and inclusive working environment. We have created a programme of D&I initiatives that underpins this commitment. Our diversity programme has been widely recognised as industry-leading with several global and national awards including, the ‘Most Effective Diversity & Inclusion Strategy’, and the ‘Outstanding Employee Engagement Strategy’ awards, recognising the success we’ve achieved.
It’s not just an initiative, it is embedded at every level of the organisation and we want to help you achieve the same through:
- Balanced shortlists
- Innovative candidate sourcing techniques
- Creative and focused advertising
Take a look at our exciting D&I programme where you can view our ‘PageGroup is People’ video and read the latest news and updates. Get guidance in sustaining an inclusive working environment, along with a diverse workforce to add value to your business.
How we partner with our clients
We have worked closely over the last two years with a number of global financial services industry leaders looking at their D&I agendas and linking it to their recruitment strategies. We’ve successfully driven D&I agendas, whist keeping their employees engaged, and motivated throughout.
PageGroup’s D&I Checklist Generator will give you the guidance you need to better understand your D&I agenda, advise you on how to roll out the relevant training, measure your employee engagement effectively and make suggestions on how best to celebrate your D&I achievements.
If you are in a business that actively wants to improve its D&I agenda, or if you are a woman wanting to develop your career further, please contact Nina Buttle at email@example.com, or telephone: 020 7645 1413.
