Gold-i has been shortlisted for The Ultimate Fintech Workplace Awards 2018 – a new award which celebrates the most innovative, engaging and inclusive work environments across the UK.
The Surrey-based trading technology firm, which celebrates its tenth anniversary in October 2018, has had a strong focus on employee engagement from the outset. Gold-i impressed the judges with its focus on work/life balance, philanthropy and, above all, the initiatives it has introduced to create a fun working environment for all employees.
Tom Higgins, CEO, Gold-i comments, “I have always believed that if employees enjoy being at work, feel valued and there’s a fun, positive atmosphere in the office, they will be far more motivated to succeed – and this ethos has certainly had a positive impact on our global growth. We are delighted to have been shortlisted for The Ultimate Fintech Workplace Awards. We put a lot of effort into instilling our core values across the organisation and into nurturing and developing tech talent.”
Gold-i’s core values focus on pushing boundaries, always going the extra mile and having fun at work and supporting each other. They are: ‘Innovation isn’t scary; wear the loud shirt,’ ‘Actions Against the Odds, Determined to Make it Work,’ and ‘Embrace the Fun. We are the Gold-i team.’
Toby Babb, CEO, Harrington Starr, the firm which organises the awards adds, “We have brought together a stellar judging panel including some of the world’s foremost thinkers on the subject of employee engagement. Our shortlisted companies are all extremely impressive and represent the whole industry spectrum, from start-ups and disruptors through to tier one banks and hedge funds. Regardless of the size of the organisations, they all prioritise attracting and engaging the best tech talent in the industry – and have all introduced initiatives which really demonstrate how much they value their employees.”
The judging panel for The Ultimate Fintech Workplace Awards includes representatives from Barclays, EY, Lloyds Banking and Recruiter Magazine. The winner will be announced at the end of October 2018.
