Development and review

Staff have regular performance and career development reviews, and the managing director from each local company office gives a yearly presentation to the Board on every member of staff's development, performance and potential.

We continually review our development and training programmes to make sure that they are continuing to make the grade.

Employee engagement

Teams hold regular meetings in which discussion is encouraged and employees’ opinions are sought. Managers update them regularly on the Company’s position and future plans.

Each year, we survey all our staff about their experience of working for Willmott Dixon. Employee engagement has remained at a consistently high level over the past few years, but we know we can always do better. So each year we develop an action plan to address any issues that our employees raise, to make Willmott Dixon an even better place to work.

We have won a number of awards for the quality of our workplace environment.

Reporting

We regularly monitor and report on our workplace management performance at Board level.
