Working at FT
Our talented team of over 11,000 people work in more than 30 countries, bringing expertise that’s both broad and unique. This huge pool of knowledge benefits our clients’ ever-evolving financial aspirations, as well as our own people’s personal career development.
Engaging Our Teams
From our CEO to our newest employee, we all have a responsibility to cultivate an inclusive environment.
We offer an educational series to promote inclusion, mitigate unconscious bias and increase cultural sensitivity awareness. Employees set a D&I goal, create personal action plans and access curated resources to increase their inclusive leadership capabilities.
Our collaborative intranet and social network enable employees to share their perspectives and exchange ideas. And, in our annual employee sentiment survey, diversity and inclusion related responses received the highest positive satisfaction scores.
We encourage inclusion through our employee-led Business Resource Groups. These communities support a greater sense of shared experience with colleagues and allies to:
- Nurture collaboration and networking
- Contribute insights on key business initiatives
- Support new employee recruiting and mentoring
Cultivating Inclusive and Diverse Teams
Our workforce is made up of employees across generations, genders, sexual orientation, abilities and cultural identities. As employees, we know it’s up to us to maintain and grow our unique culture.
