Did you know?
Our diverse workforce reflects our global customer base. Our colleague-led global networks include Women of Worldpay (WOW) and GLOW, our LGBT network, which now have more than 400 and 250 members respectively.
In 2016, we launched the Muslims of Worldpay (MoW) network which aims to create a better understanding of the Islamic culture and religion.
As a family-friendly employer, we know how important it is to achieve the right work-life balance. We launched the Worldpay Family Network (WFN) in November 2016 and had 285 members by the end of the year.
This colleague-led network offers the opportunity to connect and network with colleagues going through similar experiences and to access inspiring and relevant events and resources on a range of issues at convenient times.
The WFN network complements our partnership with My Family Care, a national scheme through which we can offer a wealth of information and resources for colleagues with families.
Worldpay subsidises six sessions of emergency back-up childcare or elder care for every colleague as well as maternity, paternity and adoption 1-1 coaching and webinars. Nearly 11% of colleagues are registered.
We aim to support our colleagues to make the choices that are best for them in terms of caring for family while continuing their career with Worldpay. Increasingly, couples are tending to share parenting more equally and Shared Parental Leave is a part of that. We support our colleagues before, during and after their period of Shared Parental Leave and encourage and facilitate their return to work. It gives you and your partner more flexibility in how to share the care of your child in the first year after birth or placement rather than simply taking maternity, adoption or paternity leave because you will be able to choose how to split the available leave between you, and can decide to be off work at the same time or one after another in quite flexible ways.
We continue to focus on gender diversity and on strengthening the pipeline of talented women in Worldpay.
In 2016, Worldpay appointed a number of women into senior roles including Stephanie Ferris, Chief Financial Officer, Kim Martin, Chief Human Resources Officer; and Karen Richardson, Non-Executive Director and member of the Audit, Group Risk and Nomination Committees.
Worldpay is a founding member of the new FT 125 Women’s Forum, launched in October 2016, which aims to help talented women at mid-career level to progress into leadership roles.
Through regular events, the forum is designed to engage participants in new thinking around topics such as digital innovation, leadership and attracting and retaining talented women
