    Our People

    Our business is built around the provision of people, and it’s our people who continue to deliver the Programmed Difference. We’re committed to ensuring our workforce reflects the diversity of our community and that all employees are part of an enjoyable and rewarding working environment. Our people are encouraged to take part in delivering safety leadership. That means regardless of where our employees are working, they’re actively contributing to safer workplaces. With more than 20,000 employees on the ground each day, we seek a common standard of personal behaviour across the organisation based on safety, care, empathy and good customer service – all of which define our Programmed culture.
