A highlight in our company calendar is the mid-year senior managers conference, which has a more informal and relaxed vibe to the Leadership Conference we start the year with. The mid-year conference brings together the top 100 senior managers to participate in discussions, ideation sessions, debates and hear updates from the Leadership Team. This year’s conference took on the new theme of Resilient Attitudes, helping managers to reflect on their mental wellbeing when facing new challenges and leading their teams through change.
Our colleagues have amazing stories to tell and are hugely passionate about our business and its values, which they bring to life every day. However, recent research we conducted showed that we still need to change perceptions of our industry and show what a vibrant and dynamic place it can be to work, with a vast range of roles and opportunities for career progression available. To change perceptions, we started by listening to our colleagues and introduced a range of new benefits and initiatives to reflect our colleagues’ diverse interests and lifestyles. Hear more about our approach from Clare Martin, Group HR Director.
Working with partners
To help drive a change in the way those outside the automotive industry may view us, we’ve fostered partnerships both in the industry and beyond to lead change. This includes outreach programmes to young people, charity partnerships including Whizz-Kidz to help disabled young people fulfil their potential, and help bring new talent into our business via the Armed Forces Transition Partnership. Watch this video to hear more from Group HR Director, Clare Martin.
