      Inclusion and Diversity

      Picture3-3De La Rue seeks a working environment where all people (employees, customers, suppliers) feel valued and respected as individuals. We actively seek to have a diverse workforce as we recognise the value of diversity to the organisation. We are an equal opportunity employer and it is our policy to recruit the best candidate for the role regardless of any other factor. 

      Some examples of our inclusion and diversity action points are:

      • Gender equality is a key element of our inclusion strategy. An important aim is that by 2020 25% of senior and executive management roles should be filled by women
      • We are engaging with managers to help them to understand and promote inclusive working practices, including home working and flexible working policies

      Performance Development Reviews

      plusDesigned to identify areas for growth and improvement and inform suitable development plans. The PDR process also informs administrative decisions on contractual aspects of employment, such as pay, bonuses and promotions. PDR's contribute to the effective management of individuals and teams in order to achieve high levels of organisational performance. Employees are also measured on how they achieve objectives, through displaying the Company Values.

      Talent Reviews

      • The current performance of an individual assessed against our Competencies, the individuals results and behaviours, in line with our Values
      • The future potential of an individual
      • Identify the people with the potential to drive the business forward and equipping them with the skills to do so as part of succession planning
      • Professionalise the organisation's ''succession planning'' capabilities
      • Identify organisational and individual readiness for key assignments or future jobs
      • Calibrate the view of 'Talent' and 'Performance'
      • Identify development actions including feedback, stretch assignments, and training for critical individuals
