Our work-home balance initiatives help us to attract people to us as an employer, and to retain the staff we need. They are tailored to our industry – you can’t make cars at home – and add to the general package that makes people want to work with us. In an increasingly competitive labour market, we are ahead of the competition – and this enables us to plan for success.
