About Leeds Building Society:

Working for a truly purpose-led organisation, colleagues at Leeds Building Society believe that it’s the people that make the biggest difference to its members and ensuring that colleagues are able to perform to their best ability is at the heart of how the Society operates. In May 2022, the Society launched Being You: Transforming Us, its inclusion and diversity strategy with the ambition to build a truly diverse workforce which ensures all colleagues feel valued and included for who they are.  Within 18 months, the building society was awarded the Inclusive Employers Standard Gold accreditation, becoming the first financial services organisation to achieve this standard on initial assessment. As a people-centric organisation, the Society’s contact centre is recognised through industry awards as leading the field on neurodiversity.  Understanding that every decision made can raise or lower barriers to participation, the Contact Centre launched its Neurodiversity Forum for colleagues and allies.  Promoting the ideals and adaptations required for all colleagues to feel understood, accepted and valued as part of the Contact Centre family. The purpose of the forum is to support and influence how teams operate by educating, informing, advising, and listening to the needs of colleagues and learning from lived experiences, professional training, networking and empowering allyship. You’re invited to meet the Leeds Building Society Contact Centre team at their site in Newcastle where they will share their people-centric journey and explain how the Neurodiversity Forum is key to future successes for colleagues and customers.

Contact Centre Managers: Individuals at the helm of managing contact centre operations, seeking insights into award-winning practices and strategies to enhance their teams' performance and service delivery.
