Investing in skills and knowledge for our team and for aspiring engineers and scientists, and making a positive contribution to our communities.

A key part of our commitment to sustainability is to our people. We have set ourselves the highest standards in ethics, equality, diversity and wellbeing and will ensure that we provide our staff with the right skills and knowledge to deliver our sustainability programme effectively.


  • Skills and knowledge: We invest in excellent training and development programmes for our staff and partner with leading universities on knowledge transfer.

  • STEM: Our Spirent STEM Ambassadors run initiatives with schools and universities to encourage young people into STEM careers.

  • Community investment: We have a global programme of charitable giving and volunteering initiatives, helping us to give back to our communities.

2020 highlights

  • We launched a new mentoring programme for early career leaders and principal technical talent, partnering 30 participants from across the business.

  • Members of our 2019 Leader Assured programme lead a range of strategic improvement initiatives through the CEO Action Learning Groups.

  • We launched a virtual learning platform to support team development.

“Looking after our people has been our top priority in 2020. In response to COVID-19, we have minimised who has to come to the office, with 95 per cent of our team working from home. Our teams have taken this opportunity to focus on development, embracing the new virtual learning tools we have implemented.”
