How we grow together

Learning fuels our innovation. It empowers us to embrace change and break down barriers; to grow and thrive together. The world is changing, and at HSBC we’re investing in the skills and technology we need across our global network to build a sustainable future.

Navigating the future of work

We’re empowering our people to learn with and from each other, our customers and our partners. We encourage collaboration, the pursuit of new skills and diverse thinking through our extensive training and mentoring programmes. We harness our collective capacity to innovate and find new opportunities to shape the future both inside our organisation and in wider society. We are working to ensure everyone has the skills needed to thrive.

Evolving soft skills

As technology advances, the skills that are uniquely human will be increasingly important to grow and develop. Machines and algorithms enable optimization and efficiency but humans drive the solutions and development of ideas. Learning to unlock and evolve how we use these soft skills is essential to navigate the changes ahead.

New trends and technologies continue to change the way we live and work and adopting a mindset of continuous learning will enable us to be ready for what’s next.
