Belong at Very

We want everyone at Very to feel a sense of belonging and to thrive by being their authentic selves at work. We celebrate the benefits that diversity can bring for our diverse customers and are working hard to build an open and inclusive culture. 

 

Inclusion for all

To help everyone at Very understand the part they play in building a great place to work, we provide all teammates with ‘three steps to inclusion’ training. It's all about respecting each other, having open conversations to learn more, and building a more diverse workplace. 

Our Inclusion@Very network help us lean into areas we're committed to improving; such as driving greater racial diversity and equality in the workplace. Last year we held our first annual celebration of Black History Month, a week to learn about the moments and milestones in Black history, and to hear stories from a number of our people. 

We also recently went live with an accessibility and language toolbar to enable visitors to our career site to customise their digital experience to suit their own needs. You can try it out by clicking the pink circle icon on the bottom-right of any page on the career site. 

New ways of working

Our new hybrid office and remote working model means many of our teammates will no longer need to spend as much time in our physical workplaces, providing greater flexibility around where they work. We know that this will benefit parents and carers who often need greater flexibility in balancing work and home life as they grow their careers with us.

Colleague-led networks

Our networks such as WAVE (Women at Very), PAVE (Parents at Very), and Pride Allies provide a great support system for members and mean there’s always someone to have an open and honest chat with, all to help create the best possible place to work for everybody.

Early talent initiatives

Initiatives such as our Innovate Her partnership, Kickstart, and our internship programme encourage more women and young people into careers at Very and give opportunities to all.
