Employee Experience

Our goal is to create a positive working environment for our people; one that fosters respect, support, wellbeing, safety and inclusivity.

Our Approach

We take a holistic approach to employee experience; considering both physical and mental health as part of creating a safe, supportive and positive working environment. We have an industry-leading safety record and we are continually building a diverse, engaged workforce, where there is an opportunity for employees to share and shape their experience of the workplace.

Health and Safety

Continuing to target zero harm

Our Annual Injury Incidence Rate consistently outperforms the industry average, which is a testament to the dedication of our teams in focusing on behavioural safety. We continue to target zero harm on every site, as we champion health and safety for every employee and contractor working with us.

More information on our approach to health and safety can be found here.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion  

Ensuring our workforce is representative of the areas in which we operate

We understand the benefits that a diverse workforce can bring and recognise that the industry as a whole faces underrepresentation of women as well as people from a broad range of backgrounds. Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy aims to ensure that we foster an environment where all differences are valued, practices are equitable and everyone experiences a sense of belonging. Using our voluntary staff survey we are building a more detailed picture of our employees and the experience of different demographics so that we can set specific actions and targets to develop a more representative workforce. We have implemented training across all employees to raise awareness of EDI and use our People Committee to champion it.

Championing Wellbeing  

Demonstrably improving the health and wellbeing of our employees

We have developed a network of more than 240 mental health first aiders and have signed up to the Building Mental Health Charter. We continue to enhance our approach to wellbeing, ensuring that we are proactive in providing a range of initiatives such as employee assistance programmes, virtual GP services and awareness sessions on topics ranging from managing stress to managing finances. Over the coming years, we will show that through these initiatives and programmes we can have a demonstrably positive impact on the health of our employees.

Employee Engagement   

Engaging our workforce, to shape the way we operate  

Our employees are our strongest resource; it is important that we attract, develop and retain talented teams at every level. We're engaging with our employees in a variety of ways, including through regular staff surveys, to understand their views and enable us to respond with targeted actions.
