Three years after launching its award-winning People & Community programme, United Biscuits (UB) has announced it is well on track towards achieving its ambitious goals for greater employee development, improved health and wellbeing of staff and further involvement in the wider community.
The People & Community Progress Report 2011 details UB’s efforts and achievements over the past year in the areas of graduate recruitment; school work placements; apprenticeships; establishing Employee Learning Centres at UB factories; developing the workforce through NVQs; increasing Food Science research opportunities for under- and post-graduates; establishing relationships with universities; and reducing Lost Time Accidents at factories. It also highlights the many charitable projects and fundraising initiatives undertaken by our employees.
Benoit Testard, Chief Executive Officer, says:
“I am very proud of the progress we are making with our People & Community Programme, which is making a real difference to both employees within the business, and to the wider communities we serve.”
