Virgin Money's CEO, Jayne-Anne Gadhia, never takes no for an answer and never accepts things at face value. She always looks for the win: win EBO (Everyone Better Off) solution and inspires her colleagues to do the same. Above all, she is a brilliant and engaging communicator whether addressing an audience of 1,500, having a one on one conversation or writing to every colleague every Friday.
The company launched Virgin Money Giving in October 2009. It is a not-for-profit online fundraising service which they launched as a direct result of their sponsorship of the London Marathon. It became clear that they could make fundraisers, donors and charities better off. Fundraisers and donors can be 100% confident that they’re not making a profit on their donation, meaning that more of their hard-earned cash is going to the cause they’re passionate about and charities can be confident that they’re paying the lowest possible fees because they’re not running the business for profit. Virgin Money broke through the £100m donations barrier in March 2012, meaning that an extra £3.4m has gone to charities thanks to their not-for-profit approach.
Virgin Money's CEO sends an email to all colleagues every single Friday and invites colleagues to email her with their ideas and feedback, which they do on a regular basis. Every month, members of the Executive Team hold informal “coffee and cake” sessions with small groups of colleagues in each of their four major locations – Gosforth, Norwich, Edinburgh and London. This provides a regular, informal way of sharing ideas and feedback and is popular with colleagues.
