Sanlam is a company built on a respect for what people are worth and an appreciation for what they can become.
This is why we give each and every person who works at Sanlam the opportunity to make the most of who they are and to be recognised, respected and rewarded for what they’re worth.
We inspire people to realise their worth.
This is our commitment to employees.
This is what makes us WealthsmithsTM.
We are committed to transformation and sustainable progress, to creating a world worth living in. We invest in our communities, our environment and will continue to empower people to live their best possible lives.
We are WealthsmithsTM and if you work for us, you work for a company that wants to make a positive difference to the lives of the communities in which it operates, but most importantly to the lives of its staff.
For nearly 100 years we’ve been committed to achieving at the highest level, to doing what needs to be done, time and time again. Why? Because we know that success depends on a steadfast commitment to pursuing it in a resolutely determined and purposeful manner.This is what makes us leaders, and this is what makes us WealthsmithsTM.
Our WealthsmithTM culture is rooted in sincerity, respect and care for each other and our extended communities. We are focused on doing the right things and doing them together.
We believe in a deeper reward that comes from a job well done and knowing that what you do makes a very real, tangible difference in the world.
To us growth means never being satisfied with where you are and wanting to do more and do it better. As WealthsmithsTM we know that our work is never done. And we know we are only as good as our people. This is why we inspire and encourage continual learning and growth.
01 / 01
While we are driven to excel, we know that balance is crucial to the well-being of our employees. The amount of money we make or hours we work will never be the sole measure of our success. We are therefore fair and flexible in our expectations and offer a range of ways for our staff to manage the balance of work and life and ultimately realise their worth.
The need for flexible working practices, to accommodate family responsibilities and other domestic arrangements, is appreciated across the Sanlam Group. Some parts of the business provide the opportunity for flexible arrangements where this can be done without hindering the business objectives.
At Sanlam we provide a working environment which is safe and comfortable, with the added benefit of a few convenience services. Most of our main sites have onsite staff canteens and vending machines for refreshments. Some sites offer the added convenience of a shuttle/bus service and prayer facilities. At Head Office, which accommodates more than 4500 employees, convenience services include a mall at work with numerous outlets, as well as a wellness centre.
Our comprehensive wellness programme, the Sanlam Be Well Programme, offers a variety of wellness initiatives aimed at helping employees lead balanced lives. These initiatives include a wellness website, weekly e-mailers, annual health screenings, psycho-social counselling and more. Sanlam sponsorships such as the Sanlam Cape Mile, Sanlam Cape Town Marathon, as well as the Cape Town Corporate Games, create additional opportunities for employees to get active and collaborate.
