Women in Broking
We’ve got some big numbers on our books with over 2,850 brokers around the country. And it’s no surprise we attract some of the best names in the business, brokers we’re so proud to see grow year after year.
One particular number we’re super keen to see growing is the number of female brokers we have operating under our umbrella. The finance game has traditionally been known as a male dominated industry, but it’s one that has been changing rapidly with the number of female entrants on the rise.
This is so rewarding to see given the benefits of diversity in business. Diversity and inclusion drives a business’s ability to attract, retain, motivate and develop the best talent, create an engaged workforce, deliver the highest quality services to customers and continue to grow.
Diversity is so important when it comes to business, it’s widely regarded as a key driver of business growth, one that helps foster creativity and innovation. It drives better business decisions and it gives companies a key competitive advantage. When it comes to people, a broad set of experiences and different ways of looking at things often lead to more points of view, better ideas, faster ways of solving problems or ways to leverage opportunities.
Today, around 25% of our brokers around the country are women. Whilst this is a great number, we’re keen to see it double. With so many of our best brokers being female, we wanted to share with you some of the reasons they enjoy working in the field they do, what inspires them, and what makes them so successful. We’ve interviewed a number of them, and we’ll be sharing their stories so please keep an eye on our social media for updates.
