Championing the potential of our colleagues; a new approach to identifying diverse talent within NatWest Group
6 October 2022 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree – £18.00
In 2020 NatWest Group launched a new purpose: ‘We champion potential, helping people, families and businesses to thrive’. As part of embedding this new purpose we decided to create a new Talent Academy for our highest potential employees (c5%), with an explicit objective of building a more diverse talent pipeline. We knew we would need to tackle this by extending our identification and development of talent to more junior levels. In this webinar we will talk about how we used new research in behavioural science and psychology to change our approach to the nomination and assessment of candidates to enable us to be more inclusive and uncover untapped potential.
