NHBC has signed the Women in Finance Charter – an initiative bringing together HM Treasury and financial services firms to build a fairer and more balanced industry.
Mike Quinton, NHBC Chief Executive said, “I am delighted to pledge NHBC’s commitment to the Women in Finance Charter.
“As the UK’s leading warranty and insurance provider for new homes, achieving gender balance at all levels of our organisation is not only good for our staff, it’s good for business and for our customers too. As the Charter sets out, we are committed not only to supporting the progression of women into senior roles and developing a pipeline of talent, but also to setting internal targets and reporting on progress in this important area.”
The Charter commits firms to supporting the progression of women into senior roles in the financial services sector by focusing on the executive pipeline and the mid-tier level; recognises the diversity of the sector and that firms will have different starting points – each firm should therefore set its own targets and implement the right strategy for their organisation; and requires firms to publicly report on progress to deliver against these internal targets to support the transparency and accountability needed to drive change.
