Driving diversity in financial services

Mentoring technology that supports your team to success and breaks down the barriers holding back your talent

Solving the problems you're facing

Drive retention through belonging

Businesses are facing a challenging and highly competitive labour market. With the number of job vacancies outpacing unemployment, creating a culture of belonging has never been so important.

Attract and retain young talent

Millennial employees are pushing for social change and looking to their employers to help achieve this. Mentoring provides businesses with insight into younger employees’ values and priorities.

Improve socio-economic diversity

89% of senior roles in financial services are held by people from higher socio-economic backgrounds compared with 37% across the UK working population. Mentoring helps companies identify future leaders from all social backgrounds and break down the barriers to their success.

Satisfy investors

Growing numbers of investors are prioritising ESG factors to create a more inclusive society. They recognise that diversity broadens the talent pool and boosts productivity. Mentoring is key to enabling this and meeting investors’ ESG demands.

    I was so impressed with Connectr. From choosing my mentor to reading the material and completing the activities, the whole process was seamless. I have a lot more confidence now, and I secured a secondment in my team as a Business Change Support Co-ordinator. I can honestly say that it has sparked something in me to re-address my whole life – not just at work, but in my personal life too. It changed my whole life for the better.
