We asked our employees what defines our workplace culture. They told us we’re defined by shared values of collaboration and trust, and a shared passion for protecting people and the planet.
We promote integrity, and treat people and the environment with care and respect.
We support each other, embracing diversity and individuality, to create a place where truly unique people come together and do great things.
We’re committed to supporting our people and giving them the tools to thrive inside and outside of work – physically, mentally and socially.
By cultivating a culture of career-long learning we motivate and equip our people to innovate and provide excellent standards across all our services so that we remain at the forefront of our sectors.
Our employees are our key force for talent attraction, and are rewarded through schemes such as ‘Employee Referral’ and ‘Top Blogger’. We want to offer a positive experience for all applicants and constantly evaluate our processes to ensure we can recruit fairly and strive for diversity, for example through policies like ‘Flex From First’.
We believe we make great recruitment decisions, so from day one all new colleagues are integral to our teams. We encourage a safe, supportive environment and trust our colleagues to contribute their best and unique selves – only in this way can we truly collaborate and achieve excellence.
Excellence of service, competence, and employee satisfaction are facilitated by career-long learning. We do this through professional bodies, and individual career development, supporting our employees develop the skills, knowledge and attributes needed to do things right.
We know that the key to unlocking business success is to involve our people. Our Communications Charter sets out how we inform and consult our employees, including focus groups, staff surveys, and regular update sessions with our leaders.
We think long-term and do the right thing for our people, society, and the environment. We all have the opportunity to get involved, whether that’s through carrying out volunteer work (funded by us), or by leading our sustainability strategies as Sustainability Champions.
We keep our people, and the people we work with, safe and well. We believe physical, mental, social and financial wellbeing are all needed. We value each individual’s contribution and reward it with fair, competitive remuneration, benefits, and employee experience. We know we are greater than the sum of our parts, so we value collaboration and use it to build strong supportive teams.
We're proud of our
extensive certification and accreditations.
