Sopra Steria is an ethically driven organisation and recognises that being inclusive and diverse is an important part of being a great place to work. One of the ways Sopra Steria supports diversity and equality is through its growing family of employee inclusion networks, which are open to all employees across the organisation, who either identify with or are allies of the network purpose. These networks operate together to provide a supportive and safe environment for everyone across the business to connect, learn and share about the cultures, perspectives, and issues of employees from different backgrounds.
The company has a strong social conscience, not just for its employees, but for its clients as well. Sopra Steria’s mission is to shape the world for the better, driving positive change in business and society. This is reflected by the work it delivers across the public and private sectors. From helping the Government provide essential public and health services that offer more convenience and choice, to improving financial services to deliver fairer, customer-centric solutions.
A priority for Sopra Steria is taking a lead in social value. Its Tech for Good programme aims to make business and technology a force for good by improving social mobility, driving inclusive economic growth and promoting diversity. Employees also have the opportunity to make a difference to the causes they care about with three paid volunteering days a year.
Sopra Steria has also been recognised for environmental sustainability with its recent ranking in the Financial Times’ Europe’s Climate Leaders 2022 list and as a global leader on corporate climate action by its inclusion for the fifth consecutive year in the CDP Climate Change ‘A’ list.
