Everyday Loans becomes one of the first subprime lenders to sign the Women in Finance charter
Committed to gender parity across the organization, Everyday Loans has become one of the first risk lenders to adhere to the Women in Finance Charter.
This commitment aims to have women occupy at least 40% of senior and middle management positions within the organization by 2021.
Everyday Loans joined the charter on the second anniversary of the HM Treasury initiative. It is now working with 366 other signatory companies – from global banks to credit unions, from large insurance companies to small start-ups – to build a more balanced and fairer industry.
The CEO of Everyday Loans is CEO Miles Cresswell-Turner. He works with many other committed women and men who also promote engagement at all levels of the company and branch.
Cresswell-Turner said, “Gender equality is better for employees and better for businesses. We have always been very proud of our inclusive corporate culture and we like to think that the 500 members of our team feel valued and involved. As a result, they’re engaged and motivated – benefits they then pass on to our 55,000+ clients through our branch network through good old-fashioned lending relationships with our 42% female clientele. We are the only subprime lender to operate this way.
“By signing this pledge, we will ensure to resolutely implement our Action Plan for Gender Equality, which focuses on three key areas: Leadership and Governance; employment conditions and career development for women. Mareena Flint, Director of Human Resources at Everyday Loans, said: “Internal goals include: more reporting on gender equality; increased promotion of flexible working practices, as well as attracting more new employees to the organization. We will do even more to support our managers in the development and implementation of these plans at national, regional and local levels in order to strengthen our talent pools and our succession plans.
“Transparency and accountability are key to driving change and we look forward to accelerating our momentum – to challenge ourselves and keep moving forward. “
