Building Society Culture: Views from the top

During autumn 2016 Independent Audit together with the Building Societies Association conducted a survey of building society chairmen to provide insight to the corporate culture and the role of boards in building societies.  This followed a similar study carried out by Independent Audit in to the corporate culture of FTSE 350 companies, on behalf of the Financial Reporting Council.

The results of the survey can be found in the report, Building society culture: views from the top, which is based on interviews with 32 building society chairmen, representing 88% of the sector by asset size.


We’ve worked with more than 160 clients. They are mainly FTSE 350 comanies – including 20 from the FTSE 100.
