Employee engagement tracking
Colleague engagement is a key priority for C&C Group and is an agenda item at each Board, Executive and ESG Committee meeting.
In May and November each year, C&C invite colleagues to participate in our Employee Voice Survey powered by Workday Peakon to capture their views on how we are doing. Survey feedback is submitted anonymously by colleagues. The Group looks to identify where we are as a business and how our values reflect colleagues’ experience working at C&C. Colleague feedback in areas including diversity, inclusion and wellbeing, and business strategy are critical to our efforts to make C&C a great place to work.
Our Employee Voice results are shared with the Executive Committee and the Board and cascaded to direct reports and broader business areas. In addition, measures were identified and communicated to all colleagues addressing C&Cs’ three main drivers of Engagement, Reward, Growth and Strategy/Mission in response to colleague feedback.
Initiatives to address feedback on Reward include a role evaluation exercise with Korn Ferry, pay and salary increases for FY2023, and discussions with colleagues to establish a common understanding of “what reward is”. C&C will also extend Gender Pay Gap Reporting across the Group, and measures we will put in place to address the gap.
The Group recognises that communication is a priority in improving colleagues’ understanding of strategy and mission. Initiatives to improve communication include weekly briefings to managers and monthly briefings to all colleagues. In February and March 2022, six roadshows were held across the UK to present and discuss brand plans and receive feedback from colleagues. In addition, on 10 March 2022, an entire day session on strategy with senior leaders was held in Manchester. The content from this session was cascaded across the business, to allow colleagues to identify how C&C’s purpose, values and strategy, can be embedded in their day-to-day work.
