The Investors in People report states that Ground Control people are “clear about their roles and find their work interesting. They are confident in their level of authority and are prepared to take the initiative when required. Several initiatives now seek to develop people for progression. There are groups that enable collaboration across the organisation but there is more to do to ensure that everyone is aware of the full range of projects being undertaken.
The Ground Control values include ‘We value each other’ and the Business Plan states that ‘we put people at the centre of everything we do’. The approach to learning and development gives substance to these statements. There is a wealth of support available and initiatives like the Senior Leadership Team and Senior Executive Team provide people with development in readiness for the opportunities that the continuing growth of the business will bring. To Infinity and Beyond will ensure that senior leaders continue to look to the future and plan accordingly”
