Responsible business means recognising the importance of our employees to our success and future development and providing an environment that will attract, motivate and reward them.
We invest in a range of internal and external initiatives to promote employee development.
Employees are kept informed through regular employee briefings and company newsletters. There are a number of employee representative groups within the organisation who meet regularly for example, in the UK, the Employee Partnership, an elected forum meet regularly with management representatives to discuss work related issues.
We welcome applications for employment from all sectors of the community and promote equality of opportunity in employment regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, disability or ethnic origin. Training, career development and promotion opportunities are available to all employees.
In the event that an employee becomes disabled, we make reasonable adjustments where any aspect of premises or working practices puts such a disabled employee at a substantial disadvantage compared with a nondisabled employee.
