Eton Bridge Partners has always invested in their people. Everyone is encouraged to develop themselves, whether this is for personal, or work performance. For example, all new members of the team complete a ‘Strengths Finders’ questionnaire to determine their strengths and similarities with others. We regularly invest in training courses, 1-2-1 external coaching (not just at leadership level) and ‘lunch and learns’ with both internal and external speakers. This is an area of continued focus to ensure we are helping our people to develop to their full potential.
My purpose as Head of People is to evolve and enhance what we already have and ask; ‘What else could make this an even better place to work?’ ‘How do we take Eton Bridge Partners from a ‘great employer’ to an ‘amazing employer’?
In any company, HR has two core responsibilities. One is to ensure that the organisation operates within the legal employment framework and mitigate risks, and the other is to focus on the people agenda to improve the performance of the business. This means addressing the whole employee hierarchy of needs from pay and benefits, workplace environment and culture, through to talent development and succession planning.
