We’re about the people who work with us

We celebrate their diversities and embrace the value that their differences bring. We believe that a culture of inclusion forms the basis of a truly sustainable business and is vital to shaping a strong and fresh-thinking organisation.

Our four key behaviours

Recruiting from the widest possible pool of talent, we assess every potential employee against our four key behaviours – Integrity, Inclusion, Inspiration and Impact. We make sure that our workforce is a true reflection of our communities and customers. Their unique perspectives not only give us a better understanding of customers from all walks of life, but bring fresh ideas on nuclear safety too. 

Employee networks

Our attitude towards diversity is reinforced by our various employee networks – Women’s Network, LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) Supporters Network, Disability and Carers Network, BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) Network, Working Parents’ Network, Forces Support Network, Young Professionals Network and the Cancer Support Network. We're also developing a Mental Health Network. 

These networks provide a platform for employees to share views, tell us what we’re doing well and recommend improvements. This creates a real sense of community and a workforce who feel that their opinions are valued. It also helps us address business challenges and get closer to our goal of becoming a truly inclusive employer. One that encourages inspiration, innovation and employee commitment to a better energy future.
