      What fantastic feedback, thank you. We are so pleased that you have seen the value in our approaches with our working culture and flexibility. We continue to improve based on feedback from our employee engagement surveys and firmly believe in a high performance, high trust environment which focuses on output as opposed to the hours that people work. We believe that choice is important which is why we offer a flexible benefits package ensuring we can accommodate working patterns that mean people can sustain the balance in their life that suits them. Our rewards also extend beyond cash incentives and, in keeping with one of our values to "make it fun", we organise social events across the year. These include team social events, inter-company sporting competitions and charity activities, make sure to keep an eye out for any upcoming events.
