Not only do we recognise the need to engage our people in support of our Fashion Footprint programme, we also acknowledge their expectations of us as their employer to demonstrate our commitments.
We have taken a number of steps this year to reinforce the two-way benefits of employee engagement. We have adopted some of the ideas and recommendations that have been driven out of the extension of Fashion Footprint to our retail community, which now includes our teams at BHS. We have completed an employee volunteering pilot and put in place steps to take that forward. We continue to value the feedback from our Fashion Footprint Advisory Panel.
