BEST EMPLOYER BRAND & VALUES INITIATIVE FOR BUSINESS CULTURE
Natasha Dillon, Chief People Officer, Inmarsat said: “We are honoured and enormously proud to have won the Business Award for Best Employer Brand and Values Initiative for Business Culture. As a business partially built through acquisitions, we knew that we needed to strengthen the connection between all our people and Inmarsat’s brand values. We achieved this through the articulation of our employee value proposition (EVP), launch of new values and the creation of an ambitious new People Strategy and High Performance Culture programme that put employee motivation and engagement at the heart of our business.
“Similarly, we wanted to make sure our people feel connected to our values so we sought extensive employee input into what was important to them and what would help make Inmarsat a great place to work. That has paid off and we have increased employee engagement significantly.”
