Work-life balance

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.

  • Flexibility

    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.



  • Convenience

    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.



  • Wellness

    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.
