People and culture is one of our five strategic priorities. It forms a central part of our sustainability agenda.

A key element to creating long term shareholder value is our ability to attract, develop and retain the most talented people at all levels. We do this in a variety of ways:

  • Talent management – most notably our Business Leaders Programme and European Leadership Development Programme
  • Adopting employment policies which offer flexible working and paid leave
  • Appropriate reward incentives – including bonus, long term incentives and Sharesave schemes
  • Promoting the wellbeing of our people – wellness clinics and programmes, health checkups, healthclub reimbursement schemes etc
