That’s why we actively seek different views and perspectives from a broad range of people across SSE. We’re serious about promoting inclusion and diversity and have a well-defined strategy to encourage difference coming into, staying on and progressing up within SSE. We measure our progress against the Equal Approach Return on Inclusion tool and latest results show that we have reached Champion level, demonstrating the success of our strategy and the robustness of the underlying processes that we have put in place.
We designed our STEM returners programme to help support those who've taken a career break find their way back into the energy sector, where their skills and experience are very much needed.
SSE has a number of employee led communities that aim to bring people together, offer access to latest thinking, provide support and offer a route to help educate by shining a light on the realities of others that may be different to ourselves
Our employee-led communities in place currently include Working parents, Looking after ourselves and each other , LGBTQ+, Black and ethnic minority, Menopause, Armed Forces.
We recognise the issues faced by some Service personnel and veterans as they transition into civilian life and have committed to a package of support for serving and ex-forces personnel, military spouses and other family members.
We strongly believe that barriers to learning shouldn’t hold anyone back from a rewarding career. That’s why we were the first in our industry e.g. forerunners to remove minimum entry requirements for our apprenticeships and recruit based on an individual’s strengths and qualities, trusting that skills can be taught.
