Our People

Committed to safe, respectful and inclusive working environments...

We value our workforce highly and employ over 19,000 people in around 50 countries worldwide.

Our employees are the core of our business.  Their leadership, talent and commitment ensure we remain leaders in our sector, are competitive in the marketplace, and operate our businesses effectively and efficiently. In return, we offer a safe, respectful and inclusive environment in which our employees can thrive.

To deliver our business strategy, both now and in the future, we must be able to attract, retain and motivate employees with the necessary skills and talent across the Group.

To make sure that we have a consistent approach to Human Resources (HR) across the Company, we continually review our global and local approaches to managing people. This way we ensure that we have the necessary support structures to enable best practice people management at all our locations.

We have set high standards across the business through our global HR policies, which as a minimum are compliant with local employment laws and regulations.

Our global HR team is supported by a network of local HR professionals who have an understanding of the local culture and norms in the countries in which we operate and who are helping to achieve our aims.
