Wellbeing at Barnett Waddingham

Employee wellbeing has always been important to Barnett Waddingham and we believe that wellbeing at work is about raising awareness of where issues can arise and balancing the needs of employees and the business.   Our aim is to create an environment which allows individuals to be satisfied at work, be successful in what they do and enable them to achieve their full potential. We have a number of programmes to support wellbeing at Barnett Waddingham.

Diversity at Barnett Waddingham

We want to have a diverse and inclusive workforce as we believe that it will provide us with high performing teams that will be the driving force behind our continued success. An essential  part of this is developing teams who give and welcome different opinions, perspectives and cultural reference; bringing a real richness in our day to day activities, which will achieve better business results, for both ourselves and for our clients. It will also enable us to access a wider talent pool without any boundaries or bias.

We define diversity and inclusion in the following ways:

Respecting differences - we recognise, respect and value individual differences, which may include gender, background, education, religion, ethnicity or perspective. It is the individual that matters and the skills they bring to our organisation.

Inclusion is about embracing these differences for the future of the company. We have created an environment where all our people feel valued and respected, where people give their best. No member of staff should feel excluded from any activity because of their own background.

Corporate Social Investment

The Environment

We have an obligation to reduce the impact that we have on the environment and we consider our consumption, waste, and travel to set clear improvement targets.

Sustainable development

We aim to avoid adverse social and environmental impact in our supply-chain by reducing the environmental impact from service contractors as well as purchasing products that meet recognised environmental standards.

Ethical procurement

People in our supply-chain must be treated with respect and have clear employment rights; we would not knowingly use any service contractors who contravened any such issues.

Be the future!

Join one of our apprenticeship schemes and benefit from a firm that supports and invests in young talent, innovation and employee development.

Due to the current situation with Covid 19, BW’s recruitment process has slowed down. We are keen to continue to receive applications for active vacancies which will be reviewed as normal and where possible we will conduct video interviews for some vacancies but cannot offer this for all roles. We will however try to manage candidate expectations going forwards and will resume our normal application process as soon as we are able.
