About us

Diversity and Inclusion

In a changing world, we know that delivering exceptional results requires a broad perspective.

Building a business based on core values of diversity, inclusion and equality of opportunity enables us to support all of our people to reach their full potential, find happiness at work and tap into a diverse range of ideas and skill-sets to deliver for our clients.

In 2018, we made five commitments to diversity and inclusion, each one with an action plan to support ongoing change within our organisation and the wider industry.

Partnerships and programmes

Time to Change Employer Pledge

We are a signatory of the Time to Change Employer Pledge, a growing social movement that aims to change the way we think and act about mental health in the workplace. Find out more here. 

Diversity and Inclusion week

We take part in BNP Paribas’ annual Diversity and Inclusion week, a programme of panels and round tables on topics such as cultural diversity, gender equality, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical appearance, religious diversity and disability. 

Women in leadership

Advancing gender diversity is one of our priorities. In 2012, we created the international Women in Leadership (WIL) programme to change perceptions, bring about change and increase the number of female managers at every level of our business.

Employee networks

We have six internal networks created by employees, for employees: MixCity; Ability; Early Careers Network; Pride; Multicultural; and Parents & Carers. They are open to all and support engagement around diversity and inclusion, LGBT inclusivity, career development and disability.

Industry partnerships

We are an active partner of the following organisations: the LGBT charity Stonewall; Real Estate Balance, which aims to address gender imbalance in our sector; and Changing the Face of Property, a joint initiative between 10 of the UK’s major property firms to increase diversity and inclusion.

Gender Pay Gap

It is encouraging to see that our Gender Pay Gap is slowly decreasing but, we recognise that it’s not enough. As part of our Next Chapter strategy we are committed to addressing these issues and to improving our gender population imbalance, which in time will positively shift our gender pay balance.
