The Time to Change Employer Pledge is an ‘aspirational statement with meaning’. For us that means a statement of intent that demonstrates to you, our customers and the public that we are taking action to tackle the stigma and discrimination around mental health, focusing on the workplace in particular.
The pledge isn‘t a quality mark, accreditation or endorsement. We don’t have to pass a test or submit a lengthy application. Instead, our pledge commitment is backed by an action plan, detailing the tangible activity we will deliver to demonstrate our commitment.
By signing we are joining a growing movement of more than 350 employers in England, across all sectors, who are working to tackle mental health stigma and to help keep their people well for work.
In conjunction with this the Internal Audit team is the first division in Santander UK to celebrate a whole week dedicated to deepening their understanding on diversity and inclusion. During the week a number of events were held to raise awareness and understanding of the different pillars of diversity within their department and across Santander UK as a whole.
As a strongly diversified team, this was an opportunity for Internal Audit to demonstrate the way in which their varied and complimentary workforce strengthens the department as well as actively seeking ways to improve how they operate on a daily basis.
Internal Audit colleagues said they felt the week significantly improved their awareness and understanding of diversity and inclusion and the impact it has on them and their workplace. Internal Audit are currently working on building a calendar of events to continue the legacy of the week
