To support this we strive to reflect flexibility in our working policies, which can be utilised to meet the needs of our unique businesses and our diverse workforce.

The welfare of our people is important to us and we offer support to staff facing life changing events requiring time away from work, in line with local policies and legislation.

The right to request flexible work arrangements extends to all our people. All policies and application procedures are accessible online to employees and management. We also provide a telephone helpline for individual queries.

Many employees are utilising our flexible working policies and are able to balance their work and home lives effectively. This not only benefits our people, it also enables our business areas to better focus and manage business performance.
