Our ability to take on and solve our customers’ most complex and demanding engineering and technology challenges depends on the commitment, skills and talent of our people. To attract, recruit and retain people with the appropriate skills, we strive to create an inclusive, agile environment in which everyone can do their best work and feels valued for their contribution.
Recruiting and retaining talent
The skills, capabilities and commitment of our people are critical to ensuring the long-term sustainability of our business and delivering the innovation needed to solve our customers’ challenges. Therefore, our business is dependent on our ability to recruit and retain a committed workforce with the talent and skills needed to deliver excellence.
To succeed, we are taking a collaborative and future-focused approach to talent management and succession planning. This has facilitated a purposeful balance of internal talent moves and external hires into key strategic leadership roles, to strengthen our leadership teams and further enhance our talent pipeline across our markets and sectors.
Our ambition is to be recognised as the leading employer in the defence and security sectors for valuing diversity and inclusion.
We are also ambitious to:
Ensure that women make up at least 50% of our Executive Committee by 2030.
Increase representation of race, ethnicity, and gender in our workforce and across all our localities.
In the UK and by 2030 at the latest, our ambition is that more than 30% of our workforce will be women. This includes more women in senior grades and in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths roles.
We will continue to define our other ambitions with regards to diversity and inclusion.
