  11. 11. A focus on quality has always enjoyed a critical position at the heart of McGregor Boyall’s service offering. Accompanying our commitment to ethical business practices, the firm’s key policy commitment is to quality. McGregor Boyall has therefore chosen to promote quality as the key organising principle of its operations by gaining ISO accreditation BS EN ISO 9001. Since then we have been audited by a member of the British Standards Institution on an annual basis and have been awarded continued accreditation. Our Pride in Quality programme includes: > Quality Management System for client satisfaction > Post-Assignment Quality Surveys > Recruitment Assignment Performance Reviews > Continuous Consultant Performance Measurement Additionally McGregor Boyall operates a comprehensive Diversity & Inclusion Policy that states that everyone shall be treated equally, irrespective of gender, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, colour, religion, ethnicity or national origin. All applications for employment are managed on an individual basis and the grounds for selection are based purely on a candidate’s skills, qualifications and aptitude. Our best endeavours are made to ensure that this is applicable to every applicant and regular monitoring is performed throughout the recruitment process. Quality & Diversity 11
  12. 12. McGregor Boyall regularly conducts market research programmes to provide individual clients and market participants in general with timely human resourcing and recruitment related data. > Salary benchmarking > Updates on recruitment and demand for skills > Updates on level of demand for expertise > Indicators of shifts and changes in hiring patterns > Impacts of new regulations mcgregor-boyall.com UK & Europe | The Middle East | Asia Pacific Financial Services Technology Update The Chief Change Officer T he Leader of Change, the new Chief Change Officer is responsible for all organisational change initiatives, tools and methodologies within an organisation. These include Six Sigma, Balanced Scorecard, Lean Enterprise, supply-chain management, benchmarking and business systems process modelling, to name but a few. Throughout last year we have seen businesses continuously seeking talents with track records of implementing and managing change programmes. Today the rate of change has never been more rapid or more constant. Whether the change is a small one, like the implementation of a new system, or a much bigger one such as a company divestment or merger, the way that change is managed makes all the difference to its success or failure. Users rarely welcome change. Hence together with the hard technical skills mentioned above, the most important skills a Change Professional must possess is the ability to affect positive transformation which does not threaten the status quo. They must ensure that doing things differently also means doing them better in the long run, and that they bring a collaborative and sensitive approach to the project. “When you are finished changing, you’re finished.” - Benjamin Franklin Key functions the CCO are looking for: Build the Target Operating Model – The Strategist and Business Process Solutions Specialist This high level professional takes on a real challenge to decide and describe the desired state of the operations of a business. Typically a TOM also includes the roadmap over time that specifies what the company needs to do to move from the “as is” to the “to be”. Deep and broad business experience coupled with a structured approach to define work streams is a rare mix, hence 2015 has been a good market for this skillset. Communicate the Rationale Behind the Need for Change – The Programme Relationship Manager To introduce any change, large or small, top down or bottom up, employees must know why it is important for the change to occur and the intended benefits. This highly skilled function will handle this carefully and communicate to all affected parties, often in global locations. There should also be adequate opportunities for people to voice their concerns and contribute their thoughts, views and opinions. The Relationship Manager juggles feedback and politics, scopes boundaries, and will eventually convince employees of the need for change. All Change in Financial Services If there was one thing we were sure to have happened this year in Financial Services, it was Change. Numerous initiatives, both proactive and reactive, new and inflight have gone into production with varying results and satisfaction. At this stage, technology can no longer be viewed as something that simply supports the business. Throughout 2015, senior Technology Executives worked with Business Leaders to drive the changes required to keep up with an increasingly competitive landscape. Leading change involves juggling technology shifts and new business models, framed by cost control – what fits, what doesn’t, what suits the business best. A Review of 2015 Jan 2016 HR & The Digital Age June 2015 mcgregor-boyall.com Contact UK & Europe | The Middle East | Asia Pacific Testing Market Report Q4 2015 Summary > We have seen a good amount of senior test roles released in the second half of the year. This includes global test management positions working within investment banking, with reporting lines of 150-200 resources. > Various organisations have been recruiting permanent hires to work alongside the testers from the consultancies/ third party suppliers. This is with the aim to keep the business/ technical knowledge within the company itself (as opposed to relying on consultancies/ third parties). > There has been a lot of movement in the Credit Risk space, with a large demand for testers with strong credit risk business knowledge. This includes knowledge around counterparty risk, CVA, LGD, EAD and VAR. Testers with specific technical experience with SAS in particular have had a distinct advantage.
