Inclusion

Inclusion is about creating a culture where these differences are welcomed and encouraged to maximise business performance and have the best possible working environment.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Network

One of the ways we promote an inclusive culture is through our Diversity and Inclusion Network – Fidelity for Everyone. The Network has branches in our main global offices and is open to all. The Network is made up of employees from across our business and focuses on raising awareness of Diversity and Inclusion through speaker events and activities. We also host networking events and provide opportunities for people to let us know how we can improve.

We reward and recognise individuals and teams who deliver on our promise to provide a better future for our clients. Each of us is committed to three core values across the organisation:

Integrity

We take personal responsibility for always acting in the best interests of our clients. The client is at the heart of all we do, a value that goes far beyond our client facing employees and is paramount in every department and in every country in which we operate. 

Innovation

We believe in being willing to experiment and try new and better ways to serve our customers. We pride ourselves on intelligent risk taking, and reward those who take the initiative to introduce fresh ideas and original thinking that will help our clients achieve their financial aspirations. 

Excellence

Fidelity employees strive to be the best whilst knowing that continuous improvement  means we will get better each time. Our culture of excellence means that we will always aim for the best client outcomes and be supportive of colleagues throughout the organisation.

Career Synopsis

Charting your career starts with self-evaluation, being aware of the opportunities, deciding what inspires you and where you want to go. I spent a fair period of time reflecting on my interests and abilities and, at times, decided upon some radical changes in direction. But they felt like the right decisions for me. In such situations, the support network that you build, helps you make the right choice.

Over the 18 plus years of my career, I have worked relentlessly on “do what you do extremely well” and have always been mindful, and compassionate. I tend to follow the ‘tough love’ approach to inspire excellence in my teams: giving ownership, setting high expectations and celebrating small successes along the way. Equally important is devoting time to building a solid network of supporters across the organisation. It helps to create value propositions by engaging and bouncing ideas with stakeholders that can lead to new directions. Looking back, I have made many friends along the way, by sparing that one extra minute to explain the logic of ‘why’ or ‘what’ I want to do. Lastly, striking a work-life balance is a journey and also a challenge that I am still working on. What I know is that if you make deliberate choices about the opportunities to pursue and to decline, the rest will follow.

Career Synopsis

During the initial years, my focus was more on functional expertise as I felt it was extremely important to master the functional area I belong to. As I grew professionally, what helped me was understanding the big picture, and particularly the commercial sense of the business and talent in my team and corporation. 

At times, career decisions were not just based on a higher salary or job title but on the long term direction it offered. I even made career moves that evidently took me level down during early years, from being an Assistant Manager at PriceWaterhouse to an Accountant at Hewlett Packard. But, it was in line with my career aspiration.

Being ethical and maintaining the highest level of integrity has always been helpful to me throughout my professional and personal life and my firm belief is to practice it Mansa (in thought); Vacha (in speech); Karmana (in action). In any corporate set up we are constantly dealing with people with differing mind-sets and challenging situations that often bring tons of emotions. We have been taught to manage everything in life, but, no one has taught us how to manage ourselves, our emotions, and how to maintain equanimity in tough situations. I integrated spirituality in my life 8 years ago, and have seen enormous transformation, better focus, greater fulfilment and increased happiness.

Career Synopsis

The first part of my career was about exploration and experimentation. In the first six years in my first company, I worked in four roles across four locations. The only common thread was all of those roles were to do with technology.

The second part was born out of the desire to pursue specialisation. I developed a foundation in Financial Services Technology and have truly found my niche in the industry. 

I have learnt that there are two aspects that will help you excel in wherever your journey takes you:

  • First, your value system. There is a simple mental check that, when followed, helps to continually reinforce that in you – have you left things better than you found them? If you are able to convincingly answer “yes” to yourself about 70-80% of the time, you are on the right track. 
  • Second, adaptability. In the first part of my journey, the one thing I seemed to learn was adaptability. It opens up a whole world of opportunities. Instead of doing your job based on a compulsion, fear or anxiety, the ability to adapt liberates you to maximise whatever role you are currently doing. Once that happens, you’ll do well and most importantly, enjoy your career.

As I say often to my teams, the journey is as important as the destination, so make the most of the journey today!
