Areas of Focus
Involvement and Development
The Group recognises the importance of good communications and relations with its Associates, since its ability to meet the needs of its customers depends on the contribution of Associates throughout the Company.
Share Schemes and Incentives
Associate share ownership is encouraged. A variety of bonus schemes also provide Associates with rewards linked to growth and prosperity of the Company.
The challenges presented by the size of the Group and the importance of consistency drive the Company to devise and implement ever more innovative and timely means of communication, to keep Associates up-to-date with the strategy and performance.
As a multi-site operator, the Group generates community involvement through its local businesses. These contribute to their local communities in a variety of ways such as raising money for the Group's sponsored charity.
The Company’s policy is to promote and operate processes and procedures which, so far as is reasonably practicable, avoid or minimise the contamination of water, air or the ground and to manage responsibly the by-products of our activities.
Health and Safety
The Company recognises its responsibility to all Associates and others working in or visiting its facilities to provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, an environment which is safe and without risk to their health.
Diversity and Equal Opportunities
The Company is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to ensuring that our workplaces are free from unlawful or unfair discrimination.
