Moneysupermarket Group wants to be a great place to work. Passion, innovation and performance are key assets for the Group and its future success. The Group has clear priorities for how it:
- engages with its employees, recognising the different needs they have;
- creates sustainable employment opportunities that attract a talented and diverse range of new people into all levels of the business;
- invests in the future to ensure each individual can perform to the best of their ability; and
- ensures it is constantly seeking to do the right things, particularly in how people are treated throughout the Group.
The Group actively encourages employee involvement and consultation. It places considerable emphasis on keeping its employees informed of the Group’s activities via formal business performance updates, regular update briefings, regular team meetings, the Group’s intranet site which enables easy access to the latest Group information as well as Group policies, and the circulation to employees of relevant information including corporate announcements. This also helps to achieve a common awareness amongst employees of the financial and economic factors affecting the performance of the Group.
A robust employee engagement survey process is also in place to ensure that employees are given a voice in the organisation and that the Group can take action based on employee feedback. 76% of staff completed the 2015 survey with 88% of those respondents confirming they were committed to the Group’s goals and 84% of respondents stating they would recommend the Group as a great place to work.
The Group is committed to an equal opportunities policy. The Group aims to ensure that no employee is discriminated against, directly or indirectly, on the grounds of colour, race, ethnic and national origins, sexual orientation or gender, marital status, disability, religion or belief, being part time or on the grounds of age.
The Group offers a range of benefits which help employees share in the success of the Group. These include both an employee Share Incentive Plan and a Sharesave Scheme. The Group’s full range of benefits reflects the differing needs and interests of its employees. Particular focus is given to contributing towards employees’ wellbeing. Employees have the opportunity to buy additional holidays, medical cover, gym memberships, as well as discounts on products and services for their home and family life. Recognising that employees can require advice and support for a range of personal and professional reasons, a free comprehensive employee assistance programme is also available. The Group also has a wide variety of flexible working arrangements in place.
The Group has invested £270,000 in employee training programmes in 2015, with online training now available for all employees for our ‘Customer First’ programme.
