The Grampian Group is committed to the advancement of Fair Work First criteria. As employers, Group Members care about the well-being of staff and are committed to improving work-life balance. Consequently, we work with staff and their representatives to put fair work practices at the heart of our workplace.

One of our strategic objectives is ‘Being a Great Employer’.  We demonstrate this by:

  • An ‘open door’ policy from the Executive Team.
  • Through our People Strategy we invest in workforce development, supporting staff to develop and ensuring that they are supported to perform their roles.
  • Having in place a sector leading wellness framework.
  • A recognition agreement with UNISON and encouraging membership.  We make available, wherever possible, reasonable facilities necessary for Trade Union Representatives to carry out their duties efficiently and communicate  effectively with their members. We engage in constructive dialogue with our employees and their Trade Union representatives to address workplace issues and disputes.
  • Regular staff meetings both individually and with the wider team.
  • We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity and diversity as an employer in all areas of our business. We believe everyone is entitled to be treated fairly with dignity and respect.
  • We offer a wide range of flexible, hybrid and family friendly policies which are available to all our staff from the first day they join our team.
  • We oppose the use of fire and rehire practice.
  • We are committed to paying the Real Living Wage.
  • Only considering the use of zero hours contracts where absolutely necessary.
  • Conducting regular staff surveys communicating the results and proposed actions.
  • Adoption of a Modern Slavery Statement and Action Plan.

We will establish minimum conditions in relation to the supply and procurement of goods and services which constitute regulated procurement as defined within legislation applicable to Scotland. We will also seek to see these applied to other unregulated procurement activity.
