Schroders named on LinkedIn’s Top Companies UK list

03/04/2019

Schroders is today announcing it has been named on LinkedIn’s 2019 Top Companies list in the UK, which recognises the 25 most in-demand places to work.

LinkedIn undertook extensive research which analysed billions of online interactions, spanning interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand and employee retention.

It follows a landmark year for Schroders which has encompassed a move to state-of-the-art headquarters in London, a visit by Her Majesty the Queen and confirmation that the business is entering into a strategic partnership with Lloyds Banking Group.

Employee wellbeing and diversity have also been core focuses for the firm over the past 12 months, through new recruitment methods, better policies, unconscious bias training, clear targets and employee-focused business changes like flexible working, regardless of gender.

Schroders believes that asset management is an attractive place for all talent and Schroders is determined to continue making real progress towards greater diversity and inclusion. Demonstrating this, Schroders’ plc Board will be 45% female by early May 2019.

Emma Holden, Global Head of Human Resources, Schroders, commented:

“At Schroders we are committed to developing a long-term sustainable business and a core element of that is creating a culture where everyone can thrive.

“We are proud that LinkedIn’s extensive and market-leading research has recognised Schroders as an employer of choice and one of the stand-out companies to work for in the UK.”

LinkedIn’s employer research was conducted from 1 February 2018 until 31 January 2019.
