What inspires us

Over the past two years, colleagues from across the Group have been challenged with the effects of COVID-19, both professionally and personally.

Over 40% of our workforce are agile, with the ability to choose when and where they work, and it is more important than ever that we maintain our world-renowned culture.

Our extensive health and wellbeing programme includes a hybrid of virtual and face-to-face events, allowing employees a wealth of opportunities to #BePartOfIt.

“As a member of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Forum I feel like I can make a difference. Our forum is interactive, and we love to share ideas about processes we can improve or communications we can get out to employees across the Group. Our forum has implemented a number of suggestions which have resulted in better ways of working such as communicating to employees why their personal sensitive data is needed and what it is used for”
