“We strive to make a difference, and believe that by running our operations well, standing by our clients and investing in the communities we operate, we can be a powerful force for good. In our partnership with UpGlo, staff have developed strong relationships with jobseekers, volunteering their knowledge and skills and hoping to have a positive impact on their careers with some entering their careers at Standard Chartered. It is evident that staff experiences have been rewarding. Over the years, there continues to be strong enthusiasm to mentor, and for many, these relationships have turned into friendships.

Colleagues who have participated in coaching, mentoring, or any of the mock interview sessions are highly engaged and full of pride with regards to how they’ve added value to jobseekers through their efforts. Our partnership with UpGlo is a true business benefit by supporting our talent strategy in helping to create an inclusive and diverse workforce. With UpGlo’s support, the value we place on diversity continues to positively impact who we are. Internally, our staff have developed leadership skills and expanded their networking capabilities. At the same time, while working with an incredibly diverse group of talented candidates, our people feel more connected and engaged with Standard Chartered and our values.”
