AFRICA’S FINANCIAL SERVICES CHAMPION
True transformation starts from within. To achieve this Old Mutual has a number of initiatives to ensure that we strive towards achieving compliance with the requirements of the Financial Sector Charter (FSC) and the Affirmative Action Act.
We also offer staff access to counselling and educational workshops to assist and mediate the process of transformation.
Old Mutual adheres to a strict policy of Affirmative Action and practices targeted recruitment in order to redress the imbalances caused by past discrimination.
And, we believe, that existing talent, combined with training programmes offered by Old Mutual and other South African businesses, enables us to maintain high standards throughout the transformation process.
Old Mutual cultivates a work environment that embraces and explores diversity. The diversity management team run a series of Diversity workshops as well as dialogue sessions on an ongoing basis.
They target staff across the organization from the Managing Director down and aim to:
Make us aware that we all have preconceived ideas and assumptions about other cultures and designated groups – especially in terms of competencies.
Recognise and respect different worldviews and skills.
Accept that all people are equal and entitled to fair treatment and respect.
