Global recruitment specialists, The Harrington Star chooses Meniga as one of the companies shortlisted for their annual Ultimate Fintech Workplace awards in this much anticipated edition of The Financial Technologist.

This year, very much unlike previous years, many companies’ core values, communication styles, and corporate culture has been put through the ultimate test.

“This third Ultimate FinTech Workplace Awards has been exceptional with the quality of applications truly inspiring. In a time when there has never been more pressure to look after your team, these companies have truly stood out.”

In order to evaluate the workplace, particularly how they’ve adapted to suit its workforce in these strange and uncertain times, each company was asked the same 8 questions:

  • How would you describe the culture of the organisation?
  • What steps have you taken this year to make the company a great place to work through the pandemic?
  • How are you helping your team to develop their skills and careers?
  • How are you retaining your best talent?
  • What are the five keys to making a great place to work?
  • Why would the best technologists in the sector join your business?
  • How have you ensured diversity and inclusion is high on the agenda in your company?
  • How have you accommodated working parents?

“We have spoken to the market to gain an appreciation of what the very best in the industry have done to stand out from the crowd in creating workplaces that truly allow their team to thrive. The 100 names shortlisted have done exceptional work to stand out and look after their people — the engine room of their success.” — Nadia Edwards-Dashti

It’s safe to say that most of us will feel grateful to see the backside of 2020. But through what will be known as a notoriously unsettling year, we feel lucky to be part of a company that’s been recognized for how it prioritizes its workforce.
