Our Committees

Topic Progress:


Savanta committees help ensure we build a strong and engaging culture, empowering our people to get involved and help shape our future.

Savanta committees include:

Health & Wellbeing


Charities & Volunteering

Diversity & Inclusion

How it works

This rotational approach:

  • Ensures opportunities for more people to be involved
  • Helps generate new ideas
  • Ensures input from across the business
  • NB; depending on the number put forward for each committee we may require a selection process (details provided if required)

Committees will ideally be between 10 and 15 people. Each committee must assign roles:

  • Chairman
  • Treasurer

Committees – with the exception of Diversity & Inclusion – must commit to a minimum of monthly meetings (f2f or via Teams)

  • Egnyte folder set up for each committee + Teams channel
  • Leadership sponsor / committee owner should be invited to attend – but not lead – meetings
  • Agendas sent in advance and meetings must log progress against actions
  • Meeting and action notes saved within one week of meeting
  • Escalation point for key decisions, risks and issues (via Committee senior leadership sponsor)

Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness week (13th– 17thMay) saw the Health & Wellbeing Committee come into their own, organising a packed week of inspiring talks, activities, meditation, picnics, information and top tips, plus our very first Paws Day in the office. Engagement and support across the business was phenomenal with a special shout out going to Lauren Skardon, James Eldridge and Pete Flower who bravely shared stories about their own mental health journeys, inspiring all of us, breaking down barriers and ensuring we are all more aware of what could be going on around us.  Thank you.

A week to be proud of being part of Savanta, of being a Savanteer and of our amazing team.  And all on the back of the fantastic walking challenge.  Who knew we were all so competitive?

The pledges include publishing pay statistics annually, working towards government targets at all levels and improving recruitment practices. Savanta globally, and specifically Roger Perowne, Nick Baker and Vin DeRobertis, signed the pledge at launch (one of only 10 companies to do so) and are committed to delivering as part of our ongoing focus on Diversity & Inclusion.
