10 Reasons to choose TSB
1) We’re building a different kind of bank.
In September 2013 we launched TSB back onto high streets right across Britain and set out on our mission to bring more competition to UK banking – and ultimately make banking better for all UK consumers. That meant we had to do things differently to other banks – like removing sales targets and delivering a customer experience that really was designed with the customer at the heart of it. We don’t do any funny business and we only operate in the UK.
2) We work in partnership.
We’re building a strong partnership culture. That means we’re all responsible for the success of our business. We work collaboratively, and we’re paid fairly and transparently.
Our partnership with Pride of Britain – In 2016 we signed an exciting five year partnership with the Trinity Mirror Group to be the exclusive partner for the Pride of Britain and Pride of Sport Awards. They celebrate ordinary people doing extraordinary things right across Britain.
At TSB we’re proud to be part of local communities where people help people and we all thrive together. We call that Local Pride. Working together, we want to shine a light on people doing brilliant things everywhere, big or small, all year round. And we’d love you to get involved.
3) The Link.
The Link is an opportunity for our Partners to have honest conversations with our top leadership team. There are five regional groups across the country who meet regularly to discuss major initiatives. After each round of meetings, the outputs from each regional meeting are combined and presented direct to our executive team. A number of the Link’s recommendations have been supported by the Executive team.
So, that’s how the The Link contributes to the future of TSB; helping our top leaders to make informed decisions about matters that really count.
4) Diversity and Inclusion.
We want everyone to be the best they can, so we are building the most inclusive culture we can here at TSB. Our Inclusion Network is a diversity network that is focused on helping all TSB employees fulfil their potential, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or anything else that makes them different. Inclusion is led by a group of Partners from across TSB, all with different backgrounds and personal situations. One thing we all have in common is a commitment to raising the awareness and impact of inclusion across TSB.
5) Our Values and Culture.
We provide local banking for Britain to help local people, businesses and communities to thrive together. Our values guide us in all we do and how we do it. We are straightforward, collaborative, transparent, responsible, and pioneering. We take our values seriously and try to abide by them with our customers and our Partners in everything we do.
6) Community and Charities.
We decided to take a local approach to the communities and charities we support. We currently have over 460 Local Charity Partners, chosen by our Partners across the UK. Every one of our 580+ branches and eight sites supports at least one Local Charity Partner. We organise lots of events to raise money for our Local Charity Partners, from cake sales to balls to sponsored cycles and have lots of fun in the process. TSB also encourages every single Partner to do a day’s volunteering for a local charity on a work day.
7) Our benefits.
Not only do we ensure our salaries are market rate, but we also offer a host of competitive benefits. On top of your basic salary, all Partners receive an additional 4% of basic salary to purchase flexible benefits, a great pension scheme whereby the more you contribute, the more TSB contributes, flexible working and a generous holiday allowance, share schemes and depending on grade, private medical cover and a car allowance. In addition to all these great perks, the TSB Award is an annual award which provides the same on-target opportunity for all Partners across TSB, regardless of grade or position in the company.
8) Great Place to Work.
Recently, 'Great Place to Work' announced that TSB had made it into its top best workplaces in the UK list in the 500+ employees category. This is fantastic news and following smartly on the heels of our recent success as one of the top 10 Best Big Companies to Work for in the UK.
Banks aren’t particularly well known for having great technology, but TSB is going through a large migration programme just now which will mean we have fantastic technology to help us serve our customers and work better. It’s an exciting time for us, particularly for those with a passion for technology.
10) We saved the best until last, our CEO Paul Pester.
He’s a fun, normal but incredibly competitive type of guy. He holds a weekly stand up call for Partners across the organisation to listen to what’s on his mind and his diary. He also shares successes along with encouraging focus on what’s important. He’s also well respected in the industry.
Plunging into the Thames in a wet suit might not be top of your January to do list. But the #BeatTheBoss London Triathlon challenge took place in July. For the third year running we entering 125 TSB Partners in the 2017 London Triathlon.
Paul sponsored every partner who enters £50, and if you beat his time in the sprint distance he doubled the sponsorship. This year the time to beat was 1 hour 16 minutes and 52 seconds.
