Work on Values
The drive to create a stronger KCG requires something that unites the company and its employees, that fire everyone with enthusiasm, and that promotes the creation of shared objectives that everyone can understand and work towards. At the end of 2013, Group management initiated comprehensive work on values. Following an initial process involving all parts of KCG core values were born: Courage, Commitment and Responsibility. There are numerous benefits to having clear values. They strengthen ties across business area and national boundaries, as well as boosting collaboration within and between Divisions and teams. They facilitate easier decision-making and provide support during process of change. They convey what KCG stands for and thus contribute to long-term business relations and successful recruitment. And last but not least, the core values are a guide and benchmark in an industry that is undergoing revolutionary change and major restructuring around the globe. Ultimately, the core values are there to help improve competitiveness, which is supported by value-based leadership.
Future Career Potential
Within KCG, skills development is taken for granted as part of the job. This may be organized in several ways, for example through training courses or changes in duties, new roles or participation in projects. Internal mobility is encouraged and many employees have a number of different positions at KCG under their belt. A regular in-house mentoring program is popular with employees, as it contributes to professional and personal development.
KCG works actively to promote value-based leadership, where managers motivate their employees by showing courage creating commitment and delegating responsibility. Such an approach leads to greater participation and dynamism, resulting in a more changeoriented organization.
