Great place to work

Background

We employ over 70,000 people representing 125 nationalities in over 70 markets. Our culturally diverse, global workforce means we adopt a flexible approach to managing the wide variety of issues faced by our employees. For example, while raising employee awareness of HIV/AIDS is a global priority, in parts of Africa the situation is particularly acute. In other markets, for example Afghanistan, security is the most important issue.

As part of our organisational philosophy, we aim to:

  • Attract, develop and retain talent
  • Create a strengths-based organisation
  • Maintain a diverse and inclusive workplace
  • Drive performance through increased engagement
