Inclusion and Diversity

Our approach

Inclusion and diversity is a priority in every market we operate within, because we want to attract, develop and retain leading talent across our business, and provide our clients with the highest level of service possible.

Our values are at the heart of our commitment to becoming a more inclusive and diverse organisation, and we encourage our teams to live them in their day-to-day roles. We align our Inclusion and Diversity principles with our values, and outline how we demonstrate them. This ensures that we maintain a keen focus on our values at all times, and that we can benchmark and measure the progress we are making.

Our core values are to:

  • Work together
  • Trust each other
  • Be better
  • Be innovative
  • Do the right thing

Reducing the gender pay gap across society is a fundamental part of gender equality, and one we wholeheartedly support. While we are pleased to have made some progress in this area over the past 12 months, there’s always more that we can do and we have a number of initiatives planned for 2020, which we hope will put us in an even better position in 2021. PAUL LOMAS Global HR Director, Bibby Financial Services

Women in Finance Charter

Gender pay gap

At BFS we believe that Gender equality is not only a basic human right, but also critical to a more sustainable and peaceful society. To ensure that we have a gender inclusive environment, we focus on three pillars of gender inclusion, which are inclusive recruitment, retaining and developing colleagues, and enabling progression.

By supporting important initiatives such as International Women’s Day and joining the Women in Finance Charter, we champion the achievements of the talented women we have right across our business.

Disability Confident Committed


We are striving to create a truly inclusive culture which allows colleague of all abilities to be acknowledged and appreciated for their contributions.

As part of our Inclusion and Diversity strategy, we are working towards ensuring that those with a disability or health condition have the opportunity to reach their career goals and achieve their aspirations.

In 2019 we became a Disability Confident Committed employer. While we know there is more to do in this area, joining the scheme has helped us to think differently about how we can improve the way in which we attract, retain and develop those with disabilities.
