Under the guidance of our HR Director Dawn Kemp, who was appointed shortly before the start of the period, we have seen a transformation to the way our staff are managed, how we recruit talent, ensure career progression and the training we provide. We now have a financial and non-financial rewards based incentive scheme in place to align individual performance with the Group strategy. All this work continued alongside the unexpected activity that was needed around Covid-19 to enable our staff to work from home or safely in the field. IT has played a big part, and has accelerated the direction in which we wanted to take our working practices, so that we have a more agile and workforce.
Later this year we plan to publish our first stand-alone sustainability report which will detail our strategy in more detail, and set goals against which we can measure performance for the future. The report will set out our objectives and activities across our key focus areas:
Our people: providing job opportunities and rewarding careers.
Our environment: reducing carbon emissions, minimising our waste, promoting sustainable transport.
Our communities: delivering social value in the communities where we work.
In the meantime, we are publishing our environmental and carbon data in line with Streamline Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) requirements, and include some highlights from the year.
