HR minimum standards
The minimum standards in place for HR are designed to ensure that our employees are treated fairly and managed well in accordance with relevant legislation and the needs of our business.
The standards cover all aspects of employee recruitment, training, engagement, reward and development. There are also standards related to creating a safe and inclusive working environment.
Businesses are required to self-assess against the standards on an annual basis and provide a return to Group to confirm levels of compliance. They are expected to proactively identify gaps and address areas of underperformance. The feedback from the self-assessments is consolidated to show year on year trends and highlight approaches where more guidance or support may be required.
Further follow up and assurance of responses and any improvements required is also provided during business audits.
