Our culture and values
We have three core values: Do the Right Thing, Never Settle, and Better Together. These values reflect what we expect of ourselves and each other.
We are committed to creating a culture of inclusion at Standard Chartered. This means creating a place where everyone can realize their full potential and make a positive contribution to our organization. This means celebrating that different people will bring different talents and viewpoints to our teams.
Celebrating our unique diversity
Our unique footprint stretches across the Americas and Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, supporting customers who trade, operate or invest in these rapidly developing markets.
This means we can offer unrivalled opportunities for employees to work with people from many different cultures and backgrounds. We believe this diversity sets us apart. It allows us to listen to new ideas and gives you the chance to build partnerships on a global stage.
We view diversity, inclusion and respect for all colleagues as critical to our future success. Our local employee resource groups connect and support our colleagues, including those impacted by disabilities, have caregiver responsibilities, champion gender equality or are members or allies of the LGBT and veteran community.
We’re committed to offering our employees a wealth of learning and development tools. We provide a range of training opportunities so you can create your personal growth plan and uncover your full potential. We encourage a culture of continuous performance management, which includes both achievements and demonstration of our valued behaviors.
We also provide company-funded benefits such as retirement savings, medical cover, life insurance, annual leave and volunteering leave.
Our global parental leave policy helps support colleagues and their families around the time of childbirth or adoption. This includes a minimum of 20 calendar weeks of maternity or adoption leave and a minimum of two weeks paternity.
