Featured Workplace Factors

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

Giving Something Back

88% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

As well as all the usual ongoing engagement activities, feedback from employee surveys prompted William Grant to form a new team of 24 employees last year representing their global operations and business areas. Their goal was to work together to make WG&S a really fantastic place to work. The team was officially branded the “Best Place To Work” (BPTW) team. Their first priority was to find out from colleagues what they could do to make WGS the “Best Place to Work”. A “Message in a Bottle” campaign was launched where every employee worldwide was sent a bottle shaped form to complete with their ideas and suggestions for improving life at work. To get maximum effect this was posted to individuals home addresses. The response was staggering and the company received a phenomenal 287 suggestions covering all aspects of life at work.
