Our ESG Report spotlights Serica’s people-led approach. We are proud to say that our people have taken the mantle of ESG and owned it.
As our business expands, we aim to be employer of choice, so we listen to and empower our people. We fly the Pride flag permanently, with an inclusive and positive culture where everyone feels empowered to bring their true selves to work. Our staff-led committees take the lead in community engagement and we also invest in future workforce, with student engagement, and investment in the UK’s world-class apprenticeship scheme.
Investing in the next generation
We recognise the personal and professional value training and development brings. We actively encourage our people to take charge of their personal development with a generous training budget.
