    Pros

    Work is very easy and it’s very easy to learn what you need to know if you are smart. Quite a relaxed environment at first glance. Chance of progression maybe

    Cons

    No diversity. You can see they only hire particular people. Doesn’t appear to want to spend any money on employees. Poor pay, poor lunch breaks, poor working conditions. Lots of affairs and slight bullying. Lots of mean people

    SGN Response

    Employee Experience Officer

    Many thanks for your recent review. It’s disappointing to hear your experience at SGN wasn’t an entirely positive one. Allegations of bullying are something we take very seriously and if you’re willing to get in touch we can investigate further. You can contact me at kirstin.gemmell@sgn.co.uk. In terms of diversity and inclusion, we recognise we have some way to go but we’re truly committed to building a more diverse SGN and creating a culture of inclusion where everyone, regardless of difference, is valued. In October 2016 we commissioned a Diversity and Inclusion Audit to understand the areas that require further attention. Since then, we have implemented a number of recommendations, some of which include: delivering inclusive recruitment training to hiring managers and assessors, reviewing our job advertisements to ensure gender neutral language and using targeted recruitment advertising on social media. In March this year we ran a follow-up survey to capture views and suggestions from our people. The results are encouraging and will help us to design processes and practices that foster inclusion and diversity at all levels throughout SGN. We wish you all the best with your future career and welcome the opportunity to discuss your experiences further.
