Standard Chartered is 'platinum' employer

News | Published:

Alongside promoting qualifications from the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, the company is now able to self-certify the continual professional development of Step members on its staff and drive forward 'on the job' training initiatives.

Standard Chartered has taken part in a pilot of the scheme this year before Step rolls it out more widely in 2016.

Through that involvement, it has become one of just three Step platinum training partners worldwide.

Trevor Kelham, managing director and CEO of the local operation, said he was proud of the progress made in the Guernsey office – which employs some 50 people, nearly half of whom are Step-qualified.

'In a challenging business environment training budgets are often among the first to be cut, but absolutely not at Standard Chartered – we have turned that on its head. It is exactly the time we need to tell our people that they will always be the most important cog in our engine,' he said.

Mr Kelham said that the in-house training was able to include non-technical elements of career development, such as soft skills, leadership and mindfulness.

He believed that the accreditation would assist the company in recruitment in the future.
