Social Responsibility

Conducting our business in a way which is ethically responsible, safe and consistent with the company’s values and standards, is an essential element of our business model.

We play an important role in society – our employees deliver services that create a safe and secure environment in which people live and work.

Diversity and Inclusion

Our diversity and inclusion strategy recognises the importance of diversity and inclusion to our longer-term business success because the skills and talents needed to lead, develop and grow a global business are found in people from a diverse range of backgrounds. Whilst our brand and the benefits offered may be attractive to people from a diverse background, the nature of our work and the environments in which we operate are sometimes less so. To counter this, we are working hard to promote diversity in all that we do and ensure our working environment is an inclusive one.

Employee Engagement

Our performance is underpinned by our people and values. In order to deliver on our goals in such a people-based business, we need highly motivated and engaged employees who believe in the company and do their best to provide our customers with great service every day.

Health and Safety

The safety and wellbeing of our employees and those in our care is one of our key priorities. Our goal is zero harm. Our Health and Safety Committee meets on a monthly basis.
Business ethics

Business ethics and anti-bribery and corruption

Living our values starts at the top of the organisation and extends to everything we do, whether it is securing a high profile sporting event being watched by millions of people around the world or keeping an individual who is vulnerable and existing on the margins of our society safe and well cared for.

Whistleblowing

The group whistleblowing arrangements provide a valuable opportunity for employees to raise concerns anonymously. A critical part of our Integrity value is ensuring that the company has an effective whistleblowing process in place and that colleagues know how to raise concerns and feel confident in doing so. Where there is any suggestion that our standards are not being met, we encourage employees to use Speak Out, our global whistleblowing channel, to report their concern.
