It’s vital that we make sure all of our people feel involved, safe and that they belong. That’s when we perform at our best for our customers, clients and each other. We all have a role in creating this inclusive culture.

We encourage colleagues to be part of our employee-led networks and regional inclusion groups. These groups partner with the company and each other to make progress on a range of issues.

Mental Health Network: Mind Matters

Mind Matters is our network which focuses on raising awareness of mental health and reducing the stigma around mental ill health. Recognising that we all need a little help with our mental health at times, Mind Matters are committed to helping colleagues find the support they need.
