With our strong market positions in creative and technology-reliant businesses,
Pearson is a company that is especially dependent on the skills and imagination
of our people. By hiring, nurturing and keeping the very best, we believe we can
build a diverse community of people with a common interest in achieving their own
potential and supporting the development of the company.
We have an array of programmes and structures to foster this—more than 50
per cent of our people are shareholders in Pearson through our employee share plans.
We have a group-level health and safety policy, with numerous awareness days and
other good practice examples across our offices, and we offer a variety of programmes
to enable people to find a balance between their personal and professional lives.
We also know that the best ideas often come from our own people, so each operating
company continues to ask its people for ideas, suggestions and constructive criticism
to improve the way we work. We want to be the best possible company to work for
and we endeavour to provide salaries, benefits, incentive plans, learning pathways
and other opportunities that help our people choose Pearson as the place to stay.
