Our customers come from a wide range of backgrounds, and so do our people. We aim to reflect and celebrate diversity in our workplace in order to create an inclusive culture that adds real value to our business.
When we talk about diversity, we don’t want to just pay lip service. It's too important. Our journey over the next 5 years is to ensure that everyone here is selected, promoted and considered by their skills to do the job, irrespective of their gender, sexual orientation, race, age, disability, religion & belief. We want to build a culture where everyone counts. We believe that having a diverse range of backgrounds and perspectives makes us stronger and helps us attract and retain talented people and develop them to their full potential.
What does this mean for you? It means nothing should hold you back.
We've signed the Mindful Employers Charter and the Time to Change Pledge as part of our mission to destigmatise mental health issues in the workplace. Every day our people worldwide show their commitment to positive and enabling attitudes to employees and job applicants with mental health issues.
Employee Led Networks
Joining an Employee Network is a great way to meet people and get involved in your local community:
Women in Business
Launched in 2012, our focus is to encourage a more balanced representation of women at Santander and help our female colleagues feel more empowered to fulfil their true potential.
Launched in 2014, Embrace provides a community for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees to come together to share information, personal experience, hold discussions and support one another. We want our people to feel they've got the support they need and to be part of an inclusive culture where you can be exactly who you are.
Ethnicity@Work celebrates and embraces cultural differences from race, traditions, heritage and customs – we want our people to feel comfortable about who they are and their cultural background.
Millions of people in the UK have a disability, and many of our colleagues are either directly or indirectly affected by disability. We continue to build a working environment where our people feel accepted and included. Our Enable! network provides employees with a platform to share, learn, discuss and support.
Parent & Carers
The Parents & Carers Network aims to bring together anyone who feels they want to share or learn from the experiences of others in a similar position. This is for fathers, mothers, step-parents, parents through fostering or adoption, and grandparents as well as those who are caring for someone unable to look after themselves for example through age, illness or disability.
