Becoming a more diverse employer


Our diversity, equity, and inclusion vision.

We are committed to knocking down barriers so everyone can thrive. That starts with our own teams. We know this is the right thing to do, and we also know that having varied perspectives fuels our innovation. It helps generate better ideas to serve our customers. We are a global company, and we must reflect the diverse world we work in. We are committed to an inclusive workforce that fully represents the many different cultures, backgrounds, and viewpoints, of our customers, our partners, and our communities.

 

Our diversity, equity, and inclusion commitments

Our six commitments will help us advance diversity, equity, and inclusion at Sage, and foster a stronger sense of belonging. These commitments are for all our colleagues, customers, suppliers, partners, and communities. We have made them public, so you can hold us to account and help ensure our own actions, values, and behaviours are at the standard you expect from us. We know we will not get everything right but that does not mean we should not try, and we will be open and honest about our successes and failures.

 

Our commitments

We will have a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination of any kind. We will listen to our colleagues and communities, and act accordingly on what they tell us. We know it has never been acceptable to say or do nothing.
We will work hard to make sure everyone is given an equal chance. Our workforce will reflect the diversity of the communities in which we work and live, at every level of our organisation.
We will strive to create an inclusive culture which embraces wide ranging opinions. Our leaders will seek out alternative or conflicting perspectives, from people with differing viewpoints to their own.
We know that everyone is different and that we all learn, develop, and respond to experiences differently. We will seek out and remove any barriers that we find, so we can give everyone the same opportunity for success.
We will drive diversity, equity, and inclusion by educating ourselves on the world and the people around us, then asking questions, listening to the answers, and hearing what we are told.   
We will share our diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy, and be open about where we are on our journey. Our progress will be ongoing, and we will hold ourselves accountable when we get things wrong, and celebrate when we get things right, but we will learn from both.
