Our people

As a service business, it is our people, their attitude and skills which set us apart from our competitors.

We're committed to developing all of our people, identifying and nurturing future leaders, and enabling everyone within the business to perform to their true potential.

Our business focused people strategy

To enable us to attract the right people, support them in their development, and strengthen our leadership capabilities, we employ HR professionals with expertise in a number of people-related disciplines. They are based in each of our key locations, use common tools, follow consistent processes, and deliver against a business-focused people strategy.

Our people strategy is based on the following principles:

  • Developing all of our people – viewing current employees as the natural candidates for tomorrow’s roles and equipping them to progress in their careers
  • Identifying and developing those with leadership potential – with effective talent management and succession planning identifying the next generation of senior leaders and providing the support they need
  • Strengthening our leadership and management capabilities – developing the skills of those responsible for others
  • Driving high performance – cascading consistent and aligned performance measures to enable us to achieve our business plans
  • Attracting and developing the right talent – evolving our graduate programmes to create a global cohort who are closely networked, collaborative and high performing
  • Encouraging people to ‘join our journey’ – portraying a consistent employee value proposition that helps us to compete for and retain talent
  • Refining our HR operating model – seeking greater efficiency, integration, consistency and effectiveness across all our HR activities
