Our Social Initiatives

As an employee-led company TIAA is committed to being a model member of the wider community, and we take this involvement very seriously.

Thinking of our impact

TIAA keeps our environmental and social responsibilities at the forefront of our approach to business, and we are committed to the sustainability of the communities in which we live and work.

We have held “Green Dragon” accreditation since 2013, and are fully committed to retaining this as part of our sustainable business model.

As an organisation, we adhere to best practice regarding the sustainability of our business activities. Examples of this include:

Ethical Approach

The success of TIAA is built on our ethical approach to everything we do. We have robust and clear policies on all aspects of equality and diversity, sustainability and ethics.  This is more than just a ‘tick-box’ activity, our clear commitment is expressed through:

TIAA prides ourselves on helping look after the community. We recognise the positive influence of good corporate citizenship.  We are committed to supporting staff to fund raise for charities throughout the year, and proud to support both local and national charities through corporate and local office initiatives.

Into work

We are committed to providing real social value for developing local people and students into careers with TIAA but also equally elsewhere. Our goal is primarily about the betterment of opportunity for persons, of any age, who are making best endeavours to achieve personal advancement.

Initiatives in this area include offering placements for unemployed people, and work experience for school-leavers, where they can gain valuable skills. We work with many clients to offer their accounting trainees experience of audit work to help complete their professional logs.
