Creating a positive working environment for all of our colleagues
At Utilitywise, we believe that our colleagues perform to their fullest potential when they can be themselves at work.
In October 2016, we carried out our very first colleague engagement survey across the Utilitywise Group with the help of Great Place to Work. Eighty-two per cent of our colleagues responded to the survey – an impressive turn out for a first time survey.
It identified several areas of focus in our engagement efforts, but it also highlighted several strengths – one of which is our commitment to equality and diversity.
In fact, 82 per cent of those who responded felt that Utilitywise is an equal and fair place to work, while 89 per cent believe that people are treated fairly regardless of their sexual orientation.*
Utilitywise has always been an innovative company but, as we outlined at our Capital Markets Day in March 2017, we’re about to kick things up a notch. As we begin to execute our strategy, we’ll be relying on the different skills and experiences our colleagues bring to Utilitywise more than ever.
Difference is a strength: different perspectives, ideas, and knowledge all foster innovation and creativity. That means great new ideas for our business and our industry, new products and services for our customers, and a company culture that allows all of our colleagues to thrive.
