Royal Mail: Investing in our people

Our future success depends upon our people

Our Corporate Responsibility report for 2014-15 has been published. One of the aspects it focuses on is you – our people.

We are a people business, and our colleagues are fundamental to our ability to achieve our strategic priorities. It is their active support and engagement that will ensure we continue to grow our parcels business, manage the decline in letters and build a culture around delivering for our customers.

Investing in our people

We are fully committed to the training and development of our people.

We invested more than £24.8 million in training during the year.

During 2014-15, almost 54,000 colleagues attended instructor-led training in the UK, with more than 40,500 attending web-based training sessions.

Our people strategy is focussed on ensuring:

  • We create a customer-focused culture with the right mix of people
  • Our people are safe, engaged, respected, treated fairly and feel valued
  • We continue to invest in people and provide opportunities for all
  • Our colleagues are fairly rewarded within a stable industrial relations climate

Did you know?

  • We have more than 160,000 employees across the Group
  • The vast majority of our UK employees are now Royal Mail shareholders with a tangible stake in the future of our business
  • 74% of our UK employees say they would like to be with Royal Mail Group in two years’ time
