5. Training and Employees
We are an equal opportunities employer. Employee engagement is at the heart of our approach and we want to motivate and empower our employees to use their talents/skills positively, whether that be locally, regionally, nationally or ultimately at a global level.
Our employee policies and procedures set out our requirements on such issues as disciplinary, grievance, equal opportunities, flexible working, harassment and bullying, home and mobile working. We expect all employees to conduct business with honesty and integrity and we have a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our employees.
Within the Group’s business we have a very low level of migrant labour. All employees are paid at, or above, the living wage. The standard terms and conditions of employment for our staff provide for the freedom of the employee to terminate his or her employment at any time.
