We know that the talent, commitment and skill of our global teams make our business what it is. This pillar of the Group’s ESG framework is focused on nurturing an inclusive workplace that offers great opportunities for people to grow and develop.

This pillar also incorporates the Group’s programme to enhance diversity, provide opportunity and invest in our communities.

Key principles:

Promoting a fair, supportive and positive working environment that enables our people – and our business – to flourish

Developing an inclusive culture rooted in respect, care and commitment as well as seeking diversity, supporting social mobility, and welcoming and developing talent wherever we find it

Engaging and supporting our local communities

Engaging and supporting our local communities


Every day we go to work as members of a wider community. We embrace our responsibility to our communities, local environments and the planet through proactive engagement with the issues that matter most to our business and the people around us.

Engagement with our communities is an important part of our DNA. Our employees being able to engage in rich community life both in and out of work is an important factor of their wellbeing.


At the same time, we recognise that as a global employer with   offices across the world, our local communities can be our greatest advocates, particularly when it comes to recruiting the best talent available.

To maintain a positive relationship with our local communities worldwide, we need to listen to local issues and understand how we can have a positive impact.
