The BSB’s Assessment and policy work are intended to provide member firms with the evidence, support and challenge to help them achieve and maintain high standards of behaviour and competence, individually and collectively. Underpinning this dual approach is a framework of nine characteristics, both ethical and professional, that we would expect to lead to good outcomes for customers, members, clients, employees or investors and the economy and society as a whole; characteristics that we would therefore expect to be associated with any good culture in banking.

Our Assessment does not assess firms against a template of what a ‘good’ culture looks like. There is no uniquely good (or bad) organisational culture against which all others can be measured. Firms with very different cultures can produce equally good or bad outcomes for customers and clients and more broadly.

We do not, therefore, set out to measure or rank culture directly. Rather, we ask how far each of our nine characteristics is demonstrated by the firm and relative to other firms. We would expect a firm that strongly exhibited our nine characteristics to be better equipped and more likely to service its customers, members and clients well, than one in which these elements were lacking.

The nine characteristics against which firms are assessed are honesty, respect, openness, accountability, competence, reliability, responsiveness, personal and organisational resilience, and shared purpose.

Shared Purpose

If these characteristics appear obvious and fundamental, that is precisely as it should be. They are characteristics that customers, members or clients should be able to take for granted as being not only present, but present to a very high degree in any bank or building society that they entrust their money to or deal with, irrespective of the firm’s size, business model, market segment, age, ownership structure or location. Furthermore, given the importance of the banking sector to the economy and the systemic nature of the sector, the public as a whole also has the right to expect the same of every bank or building society operating in the UK, whether or not they engage with it personally and directly.

Assessing firms against our nine characteristics and exploring areas of both strength and weakness, reveals issues relevant to both individual firms and to firms collectively. At the individual firm level, the results of the Assessment are given to each board and discussed with the firm. The BSB does not publish firms’ Assessment reports. It is the responsibility of each board and executive team to decide how to act on and share (e.g. with employees and regulators) the contents of their report.

Members firms join the BSB and engage in the Assessment in order to learn and continuously improve. Participation in the Assessment, with its cross-firm benchmarking and detailed reporting, demands a readiness on the part of board members and the executives to be self-critical and to ask questions of themselves and their employees that may elicit unexpected and unwelcome answers. A far more comfortable option would be to avoid asking such questions in the first place. BSB membership is voluntary; it is also challenging.

While individual firm reports are owned by the firms concerned, the BSB is committed to publishing evidence of what it finds at the cross-firm level, and identifying the issues and themes that in turn inform its policy work.

The Assessment exercise asks how far the nine characteristics of the BSB framework are demonstrated within a firm. Repeated annually, it provides boards with an impartial, evidence-based picture of the culture of their firm; not only over time and across different business areas, but also relative to other firms. These multiple perspectives, combined with other internal and external data used by firms, equip boards and executive teams better to gauge progress, set priorities and learn from good practice both within the firm and (including through our policy work) across firms.

The Assessment approach was developed by the BSB, working with leading academics in the fields of organisational psychology and ethnography from the London Business School and the London School of Economics and with strategy consultants. It comprises both a quantitative element (generated from an employee Survey) and a qualitative dimension (including e.g. focus groups, interviews and board questions) that allows the Survey results and any broader themes to be explored in more detail. All participating firms engage in the Survey, the data from which provides benchmarked results by firm and business area.

Each firm receives its own Survey results, including (assuming that response rates were high enough to be statistically representative of the relevant populations, and, where at least seven firms could be compared) a comparison of its scores on each characteristic and question, with the range of scores of all participating firms. These comparisons are provided not only at firm level, but also (where relevant to the firm) for retail banking, investment banking and functions, and at the next level down (e.g. within retail banking, for retail branch, private banking, commercial banking etc).

Comparisons in each case include a range and quartile against the equivalent category across all relevant firms, though without revealing the identify of any individual firm. The results for retail banking at Firm A, for example, were compared with those for retail banking at all assessed firms with a retail banking business.

Firms that take part in both the Survey and the qualitative elements of the full Assessment receive a more extensive report containing fuller findings and analysis.

We continue to explore new measurement techniques, as well as whether and how to incorporate firm or third-party information into the Assessment, to ensure that the exercise remains valuable for firms and for their customers, members, clients and employees.

The BSB Employee Survey consists of 37 questions. Questions 1-36 each correspond to one of the nine characteristics of the Assessment framework. Question 37, is a free-text box asking respondents to enter three words describing their firm. We may also choose to add further questions in any one year to explore particular themes in greater depth.

MODIFIED SURVEY QUESTIONS

We modified four questions in the main body of the Survey after learning from the exercise, which was run for the first time in 2016. While changes in scores on these questions from 2016 and 2017 might in part reflect changes in the perceptions and observations of their employees, they may also reflect the modified framing of these questions.

The questions explore employees’ perceptions, observations and beliefs about their firm’s culture, drawing on personal experience. Questions are both positively and negatively framed to reduce the risk of acquiescence bias (the tendency of survey participants to agree with questions). In developing and refining the survey we conducted cognitive testing with a number of employees across business lines at a diverse set of firms.

The Survey is run in each firm on a consistent, stand-alone basis to avoid firm-specific framing effects that might bias answers, and provides statistically representative results to firms across different business lines and functions. Employees completing the Survey do so completely anonymously and results are presented in a way that avoids any risk of attribution.

Questions 1-36 of the survey use a five-point Likert scale, i.e.: Strongly Agree, Somewhat Agree, Neither Agree nor Disagree, Somewhat Disagree, Strongly Disagree. To compare results across firms, we convert answers on these into scores on a scale of 0 to 100, for both questions on their own, and when they are grouped into the nine characteristics.

We sample the Survey at the level of individual business lines and functions. While this allows us to run the Survey on a sample basis, some firms, and more so increasingly choose to run it on a census (i.e. whole firm) basis. Our sampling approach is designed to provide statistically representative results to firms at individual business lines and functions, and benchmark comparable areas of different firms.

Each firm receives its own Survey results, including comparisons of its scores on each characteristic and each question against a benchmark made up of all participating firms.

We provide firms with comparisons of their Survey results at different levels, on an interactive dashboard. Firms are able to see the Survey score for their whole organisation, with a rank and quartile position compared to other participating firms. They also see individual scores for each of their business lines and functions, benchmarked against all other firms with comparable business areas. They are able to cut the data by demographics, with strict rules in place to avoid any risk of attribution.

With their results displayed in this way, boards and executive teams can see specifically where they are performing well against their peers, and where there is room for progress. Repeating this annually, using the same methodology, allows them to also gauge progress over time.

The consistency of the Survey questions (and the nine characteristics of the underlying framework) is central to enabling a dynamic picture to be built up over time, both at and within individual firms and across firms. The qualitative aspect of the Assessment may, in contrast, vary from year to year depending on the themes explore and the most appropriate way of approaching these.

In 2017, we amended a very small number of questions to reflect our learning from the first year of having run the Survey. Where questions are amended, this is always made clear to avoid incorrect comparisons being drawn.

GATHERING QUALITATIVE EVIDENCE

For firms that take part in the full Assessment, we gather additional, qualitative evidence. We use this evidence, together with Survey scores and benchmarks, to produce independent and objective reports for the boards of firms.

There are three main ways in which we gather qualitative evidence, though we continue to explore new methods and techniques.

Board questionnaires: The BSB Chairman writes to the Chairs of each participating firm, asking questions about the firms’ priorities for organisational culture and progress against these.

Interviews with selected board members and executives: Interviews are semi-structured, covering a range of topics relating to cultural changes and priorities at the firm and specific themes emerging from our findings.

These interviews help us to understand individual board member and executives’ perspectives on their organisation, along with a sense of what they feel is going well and what if anything they feel needs to change. We use these perspectives to inform our Assessment report that each board receives for its firm.

Focus Groups: We run focus groups with junior and middle-ranking employees to discuss their organisation’s culture and to explore causes and explanations at their firm for various themes (e.g. speaking-up)

Our focus groups contain a mixture of levels of seniority, and we always ask that no participant’s line manager be part of the same focus group. Participants are drawn from teams across different business lines and functions.

The feedback that we receive from focus groups is often extremely detailed and rich, containing valuable insights on a range of issues that relate to culture, behaviour and competence at individual firms, and across the banking industry.

The BSB does not hold any information on the identities of the individuals who participate in the sessions, but analyses the feedback to produce firms’ Assessment reports and in developing the findings in our Annual Review.
