I have a great deal of faith in the person leading this organisation

Hermes Field Managers regularly need to interview potential self employed couriers to provide services for them. There are around 150 Field Managers, many of whom took the decision to conduct interviews in the homes of potential couriers. Through feedback from the employee focus groups and team meetings and risk assessments, there was a significant risk to lone working in this situation. The company introduced a policy for Field Managers to interview potential couriers in public places and giving them an allowance to buy a drink etc. Hermes' head office was relocated three years ago and was designed to give employees maximum comfort, from the ergonomically designed chairs and desks, to a subsidised restaurant. The depot network is also constantly being upgraded so that employees across the business have better working conditions. i.e. more space, parking, light, rest areas and meeting rooms.
