Introduction from our Executive Director of People and Corporate Services
This report celebrates what we have achieved during 2022/23.
2022/23 was another challenging year, but thankfully we did see the end of all controls in relation to the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic required all of us to make huge changes to the way we lived and worked – and I’m again hugely proud of the fact that the health, safety and wellbeing of our colleagues was the top priority of our organisation. You’ll see details throughout this report of how we worked collaboratively across our business to make sure this priority was delivered day-in, day-out for all our colleagues - whether they were working at home, or in our offices and warehouses.
As a business we continued to act to address one of the other biggest challenges faced by society, with climate change and the environmental degradation continuing to be an issue across our planet. This report demonstrates how serious we are about this threat, and how all of our services are stepping up to support our Climate Emergency declaration and to achieve Net Zero as a business by 2030.
Whilst we recognise that we still have lots to do in relation to both post-pandemic ways of working and protecting our environment, this report aims to demonstrate what we have achieved to over the last twelve months and celebrate the hard work, passion and commitment of our colleagues and partners.
