pride in expertise

We are reliant on the culture of our business and the engagement of our colleagues to achieve our ambition.

This year, we launched a new set of Group values relevant to our strategy. These new values are the fundamental beliefs that underpin everything we do and have been incorporated into Group training, review and reward mechanisms.

Our approach to ESG

Enabling better decision making everyday

We are on a journey to embed Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) considerations into every decision made across the business, from the products we sell to the acquisitions we make. Many colleagues around the business are already mindful of ESG but we know we can be better and improve even further, ensuring our purpose, vision, values and culture all have ESG at their core, enabling us to bring our ESG strategy to life.

Our Culture

Ethical foundation enabling better decisions every day

Monitoring Culture

The Board plays an active role in monitoring the culture of the business through its regular facilitation of listening groups and site visits. The Board reviews the results of the annual colleague engagement survey and sets engagement targets for Executive Directors. The outputs of listening groups and associated action plans are reviewed by the Board and key actions are incorporated into functional engagement plans.
