Barclays is a transatlantic consumer, corporate and investment bank offering products and services across personal, corporate and investment banking, credit cards and wealth management, with a strong presence in our two home markets of the UK and the US.
With over 325 years of history and expertise in banking, Barclays operates in over 40 countries and employs approximately 130,000 people. Barclays moves, lends, invests and protects money for customers and clients worldwide.
Barclays has undertaken a fundamental review of how our business operates. We have looked at the bank in terms of business performance and in terms of culture because we know that only a business driven by strong values can deliver strong, sustainable returns.
How we defined these
In January, as part of the Transform Programme, we announced our newly defined Purpose and Values across Barclays globally. These are fundamental to Barclays long-term success and represent the set of standards under which all of us at Barclays will work, and against which the performance of every employee will be assessed and rewarded.
Our common purpose is to help people achieve their ambitions – in the right way. We’ll measure and reward our people, not just on commercial results, but on how they live our Values and bring them to life every day. And we’ll judge our ‘Go-To’ success on a balanced scorecard of impact.
The Barclays Code of Conduct outlines the Values and Behaviours which govern our way of working across our business globally. It constitutes a reference point covering all aspects of colleagues’ working relationships, specifically (but not exclusively) with other Barclays employees, customers and clients, governments and regulators, business partners, suppliers, competitors and the broader community.
The objective is to define the way we think, work and act at Barclays to ensure we deliver against our Purpose of helping people to achieve their ambitions – in the right way.
The Barclays Way is aligned to the Code of Professional Conduct, published by the Chartered Banker Professional Standards Board, which sets out the ethical and professional attitudes and behaviours expected of bankers. Barclays subscribes to this code and is committed to embedding its broad principles into our business.

Advice to Management
Kindly increase the incentives in the processes please.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Barclays (Pune) in June 2016.
I was contacted by hiring manager on business oriented social networking site. And the interview was scheduled by HR after applying it online. The process took 3 weeks, which include 3 technical round. Interview was based on your resume and situation based problems. After the final round, HR didn't provide any kind of feedback.
