Mercer & Hole celebrate gender-balance for International Women’s Day
Today, balance is not a women’s issue but a broader business issue and one which the Mercer & Hole team are keen to recognise the importance of.
Private Client Partner, Liz Cuthbertson states “Gender balance is important in order to get all round perspective. There is no single male or female view of a point but both men and women have attributes that can be successful in leadership. Women may think more immediately about the challenges facing women in the workplace such as juggling work and children and it is important that women are in leadership roles to ensure we have full representation of these issues.”
Audit Manager, Andrew Dean said “Gender balance shouldn’t just be seen as an ethical standpoint and equality issue, but needs to be recognised also as the optimised way of working. A gender-balanced workforce not only offers a better balance of strengths and perspectives, surely improving business performance, but also provides an environment in which different personalities feel supported and able to discuss issues and challenges with colleagues.”
Assistant Manager, Clare Chambers said “Diversity of all types is important for teams as different experiences and personalities bring different insights to roles. For a client service firm, this can be especially important as there is an increased chance of building rapport with a range of clients if a full spectrum of personalities are available.”
