Alpha is a leading global consultancy to the asset and wealth management industry with a vision to create a unique organisation offering unrivalled specialist knowledge to the world's top asset managers.

People are the most important asset within Alpha, which operates a flat hierarchy culture through its open hot-desking policy with no individual having a personal office. This means any employee can sit next to a senior manager, providing informal opportunities to engage daily with experienced colleagues. Home workers are given an allowance of up to £500 to set up a constructive working environment.

A particular focus is recruiting the right talent. Paid internships can be applied for through the Social Mobility Foundation, as Alpha wants to offer opportunities to students who do not have the social network that many other work placements are gained through. Successful interns are fast-tracked to Alpha's graduate assessment centre the following year.

There are multiple systems of reward for all employees, including the profit share system and share option awards. The share process means that at the end of each financial year the profits from the business will be paid out at a percentage of the employee's salary. This percentage increases as employees progress, motivating them to build their careers within the company.

With wellbeing central to performance, Alpha guidelines reiterate that employees are rewarded on the quality of their work and not on how many hours they spend in front of a computer screen.
