Internationally Maltese - Topic 2 Winner

Internationally Maltese – Winner: Gregory Nicol


When it comes to growing your wealth, diversity and inclusivity are the competitive advantages you want in your banking partner.

There’s a certain level of comfort to be gained from ‘sameness’ – you always know what to expect and there’s a feeling of control. But all change, the good and the bad, is inevitable. And to prepare for and fully capitalise on change, you need great ideas and solutions that come from many perspectives, not just one.

 


Strength in diversity
Today’s world is a fast-paced and rapidly changing one, and simply keeping up isn’t good enough. To be competitive and grow, you need to be ahead of the pack, flexible and agile, and for that you need great ideas, different ideas. At MeDirect we know that ideas are at the heart of Thinking Ahead, and that ideas thrive in an inclusive culture where employees are empowered and motivated to raise the bar and reach their potential.


Celebrating diversity
We know that diversity drives innovation, which is why we celebrate it in all its forms. Diversity is at the very heart of who we are: we’re proud of the fact that our workforce is a wealth of talent, ideas and perspectives from around the world. Whether it’s gender, race, religion, nationality, culture or wealth status, we want to hear different points of view because we know that our 50 000+ customers across Europe are diverse too.


Diversity is opportunity knocking
Studies show that the most profitable companies are diverse ones, but it’s not enough to put a group of people together and wait for the magic to happen. It requires steadfast leadership and a company-wide commitment to inclusivity, which then permeates into decision-making, customer interaction, employee satisfaction and increased returns that culminate in customer benefit and business growth.


And to get the full benefit from diversity, MeDirect has introduced inclusion structures informed by global research that guide our leaders and employees towards inclusion and collaboration that ultimately leads to the best products and services.

Inclusion makes perfect business sense, and it’s how you turn diversity into a competitive advantage.
