Everyone who works at Standard Life puts our customers first. Because when customers are at the heart of everything we do, we're truly an organisation that thrives and succeeds, now and in the future. At Standard Life, our culture is one of inclusion. Of working together to reach a common goal - happy customers - and of rewarding hard work and performance with benefits of real value.
We invest in our people, taking a whole view of each individual, their needs and how these can be met. We do this by being flexible, delivering performance, and acting with integrity. We want to be a better place to grow, protect our assets, and ensure each and every one of us does the right thing.
|Group People Strategy|
|So that we're ready for future challenges we've created our People Strategy PDF (252Kb) - identifying and growing tomorrow's leaders, making sure everyone understands what we're trying to do and what their role is, and understanding what we need our people to do. This helps us all develop the skills we need for the future.|
|Our people promise is about finding a balance between benefits and performance. It's a mutual pact. You deliver in your work. We give you opportunities and rewards. And our customers benefit all the way.|
