Committed to working together

“The group is focused on topics that affect us - the new generation.”

Caroline, Business Analyst

More than coexisting, we’re co-building

Diversity is a subject of particular importance to us: with 138,000 employees around the world, that means an equal number of identities to respect within the group. And herein we see our greatest strength: the ability to combine cultures, viewpoints, and personalities to move forward together. So, it’s no surprise to find communities within our group that reflect this diversity of vocations (ex: SGitHub, Women in Finance) and causes (ex: Pride 1 Allies network, BAME, …).

Our strength lies in our differences. That’s why our group is committed to fighting all forms of discrimination and is devoted to the respect, recognition, and promotion of all talents.

Here, your beliefs, age, disability, parenthood, ethnic origins, nationality, sexual or gender identity, sexual orientation, and affiliation to any political, religious, political, union or minority organization will have no negative impact whatsoever on your growth with us.

Their pride is our pride:

  • Women in Finance: supporting the business in establishing a dialogue around gender equality and inclusion in finance.
  • Prides & Allies: working to build a positive work environment for the LBGTQ+ community and helping allies and management to make this environment safe and respectful.

Putting our employees at the heart of decisions


According to Lucile :

“Companies are rated by external agencies based on environmental, social, and governance criteria. But these arbitrary criteria don’t really reflect the reality – you can have a very good environmental score and still be very harmful to the planet. At SG, we’ve created a tool that allows us to see a company’s real reputation through press articles on the topic of CSR.”

- Lucile, Data Scientist

We’re fighting for the same causes
