Business benefits

We recognise that individuals are far more productive and innovative if they do not have too many restrictions. The success of this approach is demonstrated in low sickness absence levels and a low attrition rate relative to our industry. Without exception all females have returned to work from their maternity leave. Policies and procedures are regularly reviewed at Druid in order to ensure continuous improvement in the work-life balance, which is fundamental to individual performance and business success.
