Diversity and Inclusion

About Sage

Diversity and Inclusion @ Sage

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

Fairness is a key principle of mine: I want the best person for the job and passionately believe that diverse teams perform better.

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

Our culture is open and caring with people allowed to be themselves at work, and we're pleased that our colleagues are supporting diversity and inclusion."

Amanda Cusdin, Chief People Officer

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

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

Our colleagues are high performers and know how to think and move quickly while always acting ethically and doing the right thing. We're proud to have an increasingly diverse workforce, present in 23 countries around the world, as well as to have achieved near parity in the gender split of our workforce. It is this diversity of backgrounds pursuing a singular vision that makes Sage such a great place to work.

This diversity also plays a vital role in fueling our customer obsession. After all, our customers are diverse, so it makes good business sense to ensure we're doing right by representing in-house the composition of the businesses 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 where we operate – that will accelerate growth and innovation.

We're creating a truly inclusive environment, where everyone contributes to our vision while remaining their true selves.
