OSB Group’s employee engagement networks spring into action ahead of national day

07 May 2024

OSB Group, the award-winning specialist lender & savings bank, are celebrating their employee engagement networks first year anniversary which coincides with the National Day for Staff Networks on 8th May.

The internal teams #MakingWorkBetter include; Our Community, Our Planet and Our Diversity. Currently, a total of 74 colleagues are involved and each of these networks are instrumental in driving, supporting and delivering strategies in their key areas to help further embed the group’s ESG principles.

The networks have been working on various activities and have presented their plan of action for 2024 helping in #RaisingTheBar around employee involvement in ESG.

The Our Community network set out to encourage participation in the two annual days of volunteering which are available to all employees as well as raising awareness of match funding and a good causes fund which enables all colleagues to apply for funding towards their chosen community group and/or charity.

The Our Planet team’s aim to make sure all colleagues are aware of the things they can do in their own lives and at work and why making change is a good thing with regards to environmental issues and topics. The Our Diversity group are committed to ensuring an inclusive environment where all colleagues across the group feel empowered to speak up and bring their true selves to work.

Victoria Tipper, Senior Test Analyst, OSB Group and member of Our Planet said “Being a part of the Our Planet community has been a real eye opener as we have been learning about how much we as an employee in the business and as a person outside of work are impacting our carbon footprint. We have been using this information to inspire our colleagues to take small steps to make more eco-friendly changes in their work and home life. I am really excited about the upcoming event we have created this year named ‘Second-hand September’ where we will be encouraging colleagues to recycle and try and buy second hand where they can. This all helps with our business ESG goal of being operationally Net Zero by 2030.”

Neil Richardson, Chief Sustainability Officer, OSB Group said “These employee engagement networks provide a collaborative approach to make sure the environments where we work and operate are inclusive, respectful of the environment and supports local communities. This also demonstrates further development by the group in embedding the importance of ESG in everything we do and brings our colleagues into the heart of the activities that will make a real difference. I am really looking forward to seeing what achievements the networks make throughout 2024.
