We make it personal
3.2 Health & safety / employee wellbeing
Employee wellbeing is critical to a productive and engaged workforce and to social gain . As part of our strategy to improve health and safety and employee wellbeing , we conduct two internal surveys .
The first is our biannual health and safety climate survey , a Health and Safety Executive ( HSE ) recognised survey , which focuses questions around 8 key areas including organisational commitment , behaviours and near miss reporting . In our most recent survey in January 2022 , distributed to all our employees , we achieved just under a 50 % response rate , with the results being aligned to industry benchmark . We are committed to going beyond the industry benchmark though as we focus our efforts on improving behavioural safety performance in the coming years .
Our second is our Pulse Employee Engagement Survey , with our very first completed in November 2021 . Again , distributed to all our employees , Pulse received a response rate of 75 % and we are confident that the results are a representative sample of our workforce . As well as asking 64 questions relating to health , safety and wellbeing , the survey also focused on communication , collaboration , inclusion and growth and development , to name a few . We are very proud that safety and wellbeing scored the highest in all categories , cementing the commitment we have made to our continued improvements .
