All things People – Lorraine Ross – HR Manager

It was so great to visit all of our teams recently as part of our quarterly Roadshow, sharing the results of the Employee Engagement Survey. Encouragingly we achieved fantastic results with high participation rates and outstanding engagement scores.

Of course, there is always room for improvement – we’ve listened to what we need to do to further improve our work environment and look forward to implementing initiatives to make SG an even better place to work in the coming months.

One of the themes identified was our employees want more recognition, encouragement and feedback – in line with this, our Employee Performance Appraisal System will be happening again this year, over May and June.

This is a great opportunity for our employees to have a conversation with their manager around their performance, role, areas for development, training needs and long term career path with SG.

There has been a lot of internal movements and promotions already this year – excitingly, more opportunities for career development will be available to our team as our business continues to grow.

We have had a couple of our team complete their Apprenticeships and obtain qualifications this year, and another nominated for Apprentice of the Year!

Our HR Strategy, budget and planning for 2018/19 is in progress and we look forward to a year ahead filled with engagement, positivity, collaboration and continuous improvement for all.
