Providing our people with the skills and resources to address sustainability issues effectively


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.

Priorities

  • Training and skills: 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

Highlights

  • Ten of our senior managers commenced the “Leader. Assured.” programme with MIT Sloan School of Management

  • We introduced a new staff survey which will gather employee feedback every six months

  • We moved away from year end performance appraisal and introduced 360-degree year-round development management meetings

  • We expanded our Volunteer Time Off programme to all sites globally and introduced a new Company match programme for charitable donations
