Well done to everyone at the Cowley site.”
Claire Burgess, Group Head of Health and Wellbeing, said: “This wellbeing audit result highlights the importance of The Unipart Way. When we work together applying our principles, ways of working in a way that is safe, respectful and inclusive we truly engage our people and that for me, is what wellbeing is all about. Providing an environment where people can be heard and are empowered to be part of the solution, they can thrive and do their best work.
