Standard Chartered recognised as 'diversity leader'


Standard Chartered has been recognised as a diversity leader in the Financial Times’ List of European 2021 leaders for workplace diversity and inclusion.

The firm ranked in the top 20 among banks and financial services in the FT's second annual list of of diversity leaders.

The ranking follows the bank recently signing the UK Race at Work Charter, and the UK Armed Forces Covenant, an initiative by the UK government to encourage fair treatment for the armed forces community.  

In October, Standard Chartered also announced its intention to combine virtual and office-based working to create more flexible working patterns in the hope of attracting a more diverse future workforce.

“We know that building and embedding the right workplace culture is the key to the Bank’s success," Claire Hart, the Jersey Diversity and Inclusion Lead, said. 

"By celebrating our diversity and valuing the different experiences and skills each one of us brings, it means we can better understand and serve our clients globally and create an environment where everyone can thrive and fulfil their potential."
