Working with Women

Improving the retention of senior women at an investment bank

The head of an investment bank proposed that managers’ performance in improving the recruitment and retention of senior women, should be assessed as part of their annual appraisals, and commissioned a series of workshops, aimed at increasing awareness of the bank’s performance in retaining senior women. Managers shared experiences, perspectives and best practice in managing and retaining women. 80% of the bank’s Managing Director population attended the workshops.

The initiative raised the profile of the issue of women’s retention across the bank, and provided leaders with the tools to create a working environment where women could successfully develop their careers.
