We aim to build an organisation where everyone with skill, imagination and determination, whatever their gender, race, colour, nationality, age, sexual orientation, physical ability or background, can reach the highest level based on merit alone. Making sure our workforce reflects the diverse nature of the business environment and markets in which we operate, and the customers and communities that we serve. Creating an environment where everyone’s view is heard, everyone’s contribution matters and everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed. While we are proud of the progress we have made to date in creating a more diverse and inclusive business, we still believe that there is much more we can do.

Fostering a diverse and inclusive culture

1. Leadership

Ensuring strong and passionate executive leadership and sponsorship of our DE&I activity remains in place within each region and function across the Company, so that our senior managers are leading from the front on creating a truly diverse and inclusive organisation.

In 2021, we ran a global diversity, equality and inclusion initiative for approximately 1,000 managers and leaders. Feedback was very positive and we will roll out the programme further in the coming years.
