At the heart of our business purpose is a concern for the safety and wellbeing of our employees, contractors and the communities that surround our manufacturing sites; something on which we will never compromise.
Through their unique skillsets, knowledge and commitment, they form the foundation for what we do and the way that we do it.
Health & safety / employee wellbeing
Employee wellbeing is critical to a productive and engaged workforce and to social gain. As part of our strategy to improve health and safety and employee wellbeing, we conduct internal surveys including a biannual Health and Safety Climate Survey and our Pulse Employee Engagement Survey.
We also take great pride in being an employer who promotes employee wellbeing. We achieved “Gold” standard in the Healthy Working Lives Programme, a Public Health Scotland initiative to help promote positive mental health, health improvement and health and safety and seek to surpass this. In 2021, we received confirmation of the RoSPA President's Award, for achieving 10 consecutive gold awards in prevention of accidents.
"We take pride in employee wellbeing"
We make a positive and lasting impact on local communities. The Group’s charitable and community engagement aims to make a lasting impact in the communities local to our manufacturing sites.
Following our immediate and urgent response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we continued working with local causes that were focusing on supporting children. We know that our continued support is greatly appreciated by these groups. 2021 has also seen our STEMs team launch a multi-year programme with the local Primary School. Greenpower Educational Trust inspire young people around the world to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths through a unique challenge; to design, build and race an electric car.
Despite being a difficult time, in addition to our direct company support, several of our employees have been involved in raising funds, or giving their time and skills, to benefit a wide range of causes in the local communities.
Our annual Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report summarises our activities, commitments and innovation agenda. All supporting and driving us towards a more sustainable future.
