Recruiting the best – our culture
The workplace culture we value
- We trust each other to want to thrive; to care about and do the right thing for the firm and its clients; and be committed to our individual and colleagues' development and learning.
- As adults, we are capable of being responsible for our actions; behaviours; decisions; and impact on others.
- It is our personal responsibility to get timely and useful feedback and to use development pointers to guide performance improvement supported by others – including the People & Talent Development Team and Line Manager – through regular, quality conversations.
- We share ownership and accountability for performance: managers and peers are accountable to each other.
- Collegiality; approachability; inclusiveness and co-operation are key.
- We balance autonomy, support and challenge to grow.
- We are efficient and adopt a pragmatic, solution-focused approach.
In practice this means:
At our firm:
- Want to do great work, "wherever", "however".
- Go the extra mile for clients and colleagues (in terms of output).
- Contribute positively to life at our firm, with particular reference to finance, social life, behaviour, functional expertise and development.
- Nurture adult to adult relationships based on shared accountability.
- Care about our colleagues and the firm – and want everyone to succeed.
And our managers
- Care about their people, treating everyone with dignity and respect.
- Work to create an inclusive environment in which people can thrive and develop (which sometimes means getting out of the way).
- Make regular time for quality conversations that build stronger connections.
- Hone their judgement skills and flex their personal style when working with others.
