Leadership & Technical Skills

A material impact area for our people

Our Goal

Invest in the leadership and technical skills our people need to be successful in an evolving global marketplace.

The challenges presented by an evolving global marketplace, ever-changing technology, and shifting client expectations require that we help our employees demonstrate a combination of capabilities and emerging expertise, while fostering a safe environment to learn. It’s our shared responsibility to cultivate our employees’ professional growth and to connect them to on-the-job, in the classroom, and online learning from leading experts, peers, and mentors. Being supported by managers in an environment that rewards lifelong learning enables our employees to excel, adapt, and lead in a complex, global business environment. We invest in training critical to expertise required to run a complex, global financial services firm, including technical skills and leadership.

There has always been a relationship between employee well-being, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and exceptional leadership. Over the last few years, these priorities have become intrinsically linked and provide managers a new lens to nurture the potential within people and uncover better ways of working. Looking to the future, we plan to continue to approach leadership and training with an emphasis on understanding and honoring our employees’ unique histories, circumstances, aspirations, and capabilities.
