Celebrating Equality and Inclusion: Copylab’s Commitment to Empowering Employees

Kirstie Speed 8 March 2023

International Women’s Day is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the wonderful achievements of women as well as mark the contribution of men who support the evolution of women’s rights. Equality for all is our goal at Copylab – one we collectively strive for not just today but every day.

For us, equality is front and centre. We actively work to give our team access to the same resources and opportunities while carefully balancing personal circumstances. We know that life can sometimes feel like a rollercoaster, and we believe we are realistic and flexible enough to see that no one pattern suits all.  What makes us different can also make us stronger… together. That goes for the women and men in our workplace at every level.

Culturally, the most successful (and happy) companies are those that embrace equality and treat employees like adults, respecting and listening to their ideas alongside the delivery of more formal strategic business goals.  At Copylab, our employees are the heart and soul of our business and we’re very proud of that.

Together we have appointed and grown the best in the business to match our global ambitions of breathing life into the voice of investing. For our talented and varied team, motivation, creativity and productivity sit alongside respect and dignity at work. We’re all in this together – we are all part of the Copylab journey. Our successes are achieved as one, but with space to consider, respect and value each member of our team.

We have recently worked with our team managers to create a new appraisal process, the ‘Copylab Journey’. The incentive was to strengthen the opportunity for every team member to succeed in their roles within the company. Regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or any other characteristics, everyone has the right to be treated as an individual.

We have a reputation for bringing expertise and creative flair to the world of investment communications. We apply the same expertise and creative flair to our inclusive, diverse and flexible workplace. We can already see this approach gives us the edge to attract and retain the cream of the crop in our competitive market. To date we have worked closely with universities to make Copylab more attractive for interns and graduates. In future we hope to work with BAME associations to recruit a more diverse workforce. We’ll also embark on a new apprenticeship programme for our new administrator role.

Copylab’s clients include 7 of the world’s 10 largest asset managers. We have an 85% client retention rate and our writers spend 90% of their time writing, doing what they love. Our team come from different backgrounds with different perspectives. Our workforce generate innovative and effective solutions, allowing the business to grow year on year. Our clients also value the fact that, as a company, we do the right thing by them and our team.

There is still more work to be done, and – as with everything at Copylab – we won’t rest on our laurels. The future is as bright as our orange corporate logo. Watch this space to hear more about our organisation and our successes, as well as opportunities to join our growing team.
