Albany Beck worked hard after the pandemic started to foster an environment of support and inclusivity for staff. The professional services firm, which specialises in the financial industry, has more than 170 consultants on site in four territories.

Albany Beck's new Pioneer Hub was developed to bring together employees from different parts of the business and its markets. The platform allows the senior leadership to push out information in real time and provides an area for employees to network and share uplifting experiences, such as their successes, as well as knowledge.

Engagement and pulse surveys were taken throughout the pandemic to keep abreast of the most important needs of staff. New recruits who had to start work remotely were invited to lunch-and-learn sessions with colleagues to build a sense of community.

Albany Beck, which was established to offer an alternative to the traditional “big four” professional services firms, is based in the City of London and New York.

Under its Pioneer Programme, promising graduates are hired and developed by Albany Beck – with professional qualifications obtained – while based within clients' workforces. After an agreed time, they can be hired by the client. This helps to bridge the talent gap created by the decline of internal graduate schemes. Albany Beck's Practitioner Programme supplies consultants who, though very experienced, are still encouraged to undertake courses to enhance their skillsets.
