OneSavings Bank has cemented its belief in diversity and equality in the workforce by becoming a proud signatory of HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter. By 2020, the specialist lender aims for 30% of all UK Senior Management positions to be held by female employees.
As part of the scheme, Jason Elphick, Group Counsel and Company Secretary, has been nominated as the senior executive responsible and accountable for gender diversity. OneSavings Bank will also publish annual progress while pay of the Senior Executive team is now linked to delivery against our gender diversity target.
“Financial Services has long had a reputation for lacking in gender diversity and that cannot continue. By signing up to the Women in Finance Charter we are promising to take a lead and become one of the best in the business in this regard,” commented Jason Elphick. The Women in Finance Charter was introduced in March 2016 as part of the Government’s aspiration to improve gender equality in the UK economy.
