Accessibility in everything we do

We design and build products for everyone in line with our core purpose of removing barriers. We believe better digital accessibility supports people with diverse accessibility needs to thrive in the workplace.

Our commitment to accessible experiences

We’re committed to knocking down barriers and making Sage products accessible to everyone. Our next milestone is to enhance Sage cloud products to WCAG 2.1 AA level by the end of 2025.

Accessibility and our Sage design system

We aspire to put accessibility at the forefront of everything we build using the new Sage design system. Each component and pattern we use will have dedicated accessibility guidelines. These detail expected keyboard behaviour, non-visual elements, general best practice recommendations, and more.

Continuously improving our products

We test all our products with real users to create designs that work for real people. Our testing includes users with disabilities to help us understand the challenges they may face as well as develop solutions that can work for everyone.

Helping people through Sage Foundation

We are committed to working with a variety of charities that make a difference to ensure accessibility for all people through Sage Foundation.

Building a culture of accessibility

Are you curious about how we’re bringing accessibility to our culture here at Sage? We have built-in training for all colleagues to increase awareness about accessibility challenges. This provides space for us to share our ideas for improvements while becoming advocates for increased accessibility. 

Accessibility Guild

We hold monthly presentations and workshops that deep dive into topics like accessible collaboration and accessible design, as well as sharing our work around web accessibility at Sage. 

Accessibility Surgery

This weekly remote drop-in centre is where designers, programmers, and other Sage colleagues who work on our digital products can bring up their own accessibility challenges and questions for discussion around current projects.

Chat and forum channels

We have created a dedicated, accessible remote workspace to meet the needs of all colleagues. Colleagues are able to share blog posts and videos, ask questions and most importantly - help each other.

Global Accessibility Awareness Day

Every year, we celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). In 2022 we ran a mini-conference with six presentations, attended by nearly 200 Sage colleagues. Each year we cover a range of topics, which include accessibility-focused persona building, empathy workshops, and more.

Accessibility statements

Sage continuously assesses our products against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), and are currently using version 2.1, level AA. Read our accessibility statements for further information on how we are making our individual products and experiences more accessible.
