A key pillar of our people strategy is enabling a Wincanton culture that supports inclusion, wellbeing, performance and growth.
Supporting inclusion, wellbeing, performance and growth
As a progressive company operating in a traditionally male oriented sector, Wincanton continues to engage in initiatives that promote a career in supply chain to those in under-represented groups, and our focus on this area will enable us to build toward having a more diverse organisation in future years.
Diversity and inclusion
At Wincanton we will continue improving the diversity of our workforce by increasing gender diversity, better representing ethnic diversity among our leadership and workforce and providing an inclusive workplace for LGBT+ and disabled colleagues.
We are proud to be among the first 50 signatories to the CBI-led ‘Change the Race Ratio’ charter. We will continue providing a supportive workplace for disabled colleagues and support the DWP’s Disability Confident Campaign.
We will continue our efforts in reducing the gender pay gap and helping talented women and men to build rewarding careers at Wincanton.
