Diversity and inclusion

About Sage

Diversity and inclusion at Sage

I am passionate about diversity & inclusion and proud to be an Executive Sponsor.

Fairness is a key principle. We want the best person for the job and we passionately believe diverse teams perform better.

At Sage we want to drive innovation and creative thinking. Diverse teams create more ideas through diversity of thought!

Our culture is open and caring where people can be themselves at work and we are pleased that our colleagues support diversity and inclusion."

Amanda Cusdin, Chief People Officer

Sage is passionate about building a culture where our colleagues feel they can bring their whole selves to work. Sage is where people know they will be judged on their performance and behaviour, not their identity.

We believe diversity drives innovation and collaboration, enabling us to benefit from colleagues’ collective skills, passion and values regardless of their background.

Our colleagues are high performers and know how to think and move at pace whilst always acting ethically and doing the right thing. We are proud to have an increasingly diverse workforce, represented in 23 countries around the world and to have almost achieved parity in the gender split of our workforce. It is this diversity of backgrounds and the oneness of vision that makes Sage such a great place to work.

It also plays a vital role in fuelling our customer obsession. After all, our customers are diverse so it makes good business sense to ensure we do right by internally representing the businesses that we serve.

Our philosophy

Sage embraces diversity in all forms. Our ambition is to reflect the diversity of our customers and partners in the communities we operate – which will accelerate growth and innovation.

We are creating a truly inclusive environment where everyone contributes to our vision, whilst being their true selves.
