Brickendon, the transformational management consultancy, has joined the Women in Finance Charter, cementing its vision that females have an integral part to play in the Financial Services industry.

The London-based firm, which is seeking to increase the number of women in all roles and at all levels of the organisation, joins 25 financial institutions who have signed the charter to show their commitment to building a balanced and fair industry. Just over 70 firms, employing more than half a million people, signed up a year ago when the initiative was started.

Brickendon Chief Executive Christopher Burke has already spoken out on many occasions about the need to dismantle the ‘dusk-‘til-dawn’ culture prevalent within the financial services space, and to provide employees with the technology and supportive culture needed to work more flexibly.

“We are in no doubt that failing to take advantage of the skills of highly-qualified women constitutes a waste of talent and a loss of economic growth potential,” says Burke. “By signing the Women in Finance Charter we are publicly stating our commitment to a diverse and inclusive environment for all our employees.

“We’re proud to align ourselves with this initiative and see it as an important step in cementing our current beliefs and practices that everyone should be given the appropriate opportunity to excel in their role.”

It is widely acknowledged that a diverse workforce is a more productive and successful workforce, and Brickendon has found that providing a flexible working culture for its people increases productivity, well-being, and aids with the attraction and retention of talent across the board.
