Communication: A global internal communications programme with a dedicated resource was introduced during the year and means we have been able to improve significantly employee communications across the company.
We hold regular global business update calls, which are open to all employees, and the Leadership Team regularly visit our key sites to get closer to the business and our people.
We recognise the importance of sharing and celebrating success around the business and one of the ways we do this is via regularly updated news stories in our newsletter and via email.
A comprehensive internal communications campaign, using a variety of channels, is underway to ensure that all employees understand the part they will play in execution of our new strategy and are motivated to work together to achieve our strategic goals.
Equality and diversity: Our policy is to treat all employees fairly and equally in recruitment, training, development, promotion and in terms and conditions of employment irrespective of their sex, transgender status, sexual orientation, religion or belief, marital status, civil partnership status, age, colour, nationality, national origin, ethnic origin, disability or trade union membership or affiliation. If an employee becomes disabled when in the business employment, full support is given through the provision of special training, equipment or other resources to facilitate continued employment wherever possible.
Every manager and employee has a responsibility to ensure that our equal opportunities policy is implemented.
