Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Looking after our colleagues and their wellbeing is our top priority. We have 56 fully-trained Mental Health First Aiders across our business who are always on-hand to help support colleagues. We also partner with wellness app, Unmind, to provide help and tools to support colleagues with their mental wellbeing – 24 hours, 7 days a week. But we’re not stopping there – Wellbeing is a growing area of focus for Saga, and a key workstream of our people strategy.
Supporting our people
Supporting our colleagues through life events is really important to us. We are proud to offer all colleagues enhanced family friendly policies, including maternity, paternity, adoption and shared parental leave. We are also delighted to be the first major UK employer to offer Grandparents Leave – giving all colleagues up to one week of paid leave each year for the arrival of a new grandchild.
Being there for our colleagues through all life events also means supporting them at difficult times, and we have recently introduced paid leave to support a pregnancy loss. Moving forward, we will continue to review our policies to make sure that they support colleagues in the right way.
“I’ve worked at Saga for just over two years, and in that time I’ve already worked in five different roles! It’s been so interesting to experience different insurance disciplines and teams, and I’m always encouraged to take on additional responsibilities so I can broaden my skills. Right now I’m providing admin/PA support to my Team Leaders and Operations Manager as part of my career progression plan. Professional development is really important to me, and Saga offers great opportunities for ongoing training and education. I’ve just completed a Level 3 Insurance Practitioner Apprenticeship, and was so pleased to get a Distinction!”
