The new committee consists of 22 highly talented individuals, located across 13 different locations and has a 50/50 gender balance where all committee members volunteer their skills, expertise and knowledge in supporting the vision for RBS to become the most inclusive bank for their customers and employees.

The RBS Sikh Network was launched in 2018, has 950 members across 68 locations and is inclusive of all. The employee led network is based on the three key teachings of the Sikh faith, kirat Karo (engage in honest and ethical hardwork), Vand Shako (help others selflessly) and Naam japo (Spirituality and Wellbeing, remember God in all we do). The group runs a variety of events across key locations throughout the year for RBS employees as well as activities with externals stakeholders.

James Holian, Chief Operating officer and Executive Sponsor said: “I’m delighted by the work of the bank’s Sikh Network and support the continued efforts made by the team.  It is privilege to work with the network, and to see them engage with our stakeholders and communities.  Each of the committee members really makes a real difference and I find the team truly inspiring to work with”.
