Glint customers are a special type of company — they go above and beyond to help their people be happier and more successful at work. They’re committed to creating environments where their people love their jobs.
This ethos led us to create our new campaign, “Go ahead. Love your job.” This campaign celebrates our customers and all you do to create work environments filled with purpose, balance, and, often, even joy.
This campaign is also the beginning of a conversation. The more we share stories of the steps we’re taking to improve our employees’ experiences, and, thusly, our business results, the better we can all become.
We’ve asked a few of your fellow Glint customers to tell us first — discover below how Sky creates an inclusive workforce. Then, tell us in the comments what you and your team are doing to create environments where people love their jobs. We can’t wait to hear your story.
Practicing Active Inclusion at Sky
Authored by Catherine Garrod, People Involvement Manager at Sky
At Sky, our customers are at the heart of everything we do, and our people are empowered to deliver their best work. Our culture of inclusion is about Sky being a place where everyone can be themselves and love their jobs. We want every voice to be heard, and every person to feel confident to share their own perspectives. So we can share ideas and challenge each other’s thinking, bringing even more innovation and creativity to our customers.
Everyone being involved is the key: our people know what they can do every day to build a more inclusive culture within their own team; and leaders know how they can create an environment where that’s encouraged and embraced. We’ve built a simple and practical inclusion toolkit with research, videos and facilitator guides. Here are some examples:
- Creating an environment where everyone contributes
- Thinking about inclusion when making decisions
- Building a more diverse team
- Talking about race at work
- Understanding unconscious bias
The toolkit is available all year, and really comes to life when people survey results arrive, if there are significant differences in scores for different demographic populations. We know from the Glint intelligence that Fairness and Leadership combined have the biggest impact on happiness at Sky.
We have a dedicated People Experience team, and the focus doesn’t stop there. Our buildings are tech ready with amazing collaboration spaces and quiet zones, meaning we’re ready to work anywhere, anytime in any style. Employee Networks are connecting and inspiring people to understand more about every aspect of society. And at home, we’ve all got Sky TV, so we can share the magic with friends and family.
Inclusion is about winning: it’s our people and our approach that make Sky successful, and I’m incredibly proud to be part of it.
If you aren’t actively including people,
you’re probably accidently excluding people
