Comment

Recognising the vital role that our people play in delivering organic growth, our training courses have been designed to enhance the skills of the next generation of directors, managers and innovators. With the introduction of HCAT’s participation into the metric, the rate of participation has slightly reduced this year, although our target has been achieved once again.

2013 target

The introduction of the Halma Graduate Development Programme, with its first intake later in 2012, is a useful expansion of the Group’s development programmes and is targeted to bring further new talent into the Group.

The survey invitation was extended to a greater number of Group employees this year, so an improvement in matching values is an excellent result.

2013 target

The minimum target of 5 matching values remains relevant; the goal for 2013 will be to improve the Group’s communication of its values and to maintain a high rate of employee participation in the survey.

Comment

The Group’s efforts to minimise its carbon footprint have ensured that CO2 emissions related to our businesses are reviewed and controlled with businesses being held accountable for achieving their targets. We will need to make further efforts to achieve our 10% relative reduction in emissions over the three years to 2013 and believe that our Group Carbon Policy increases the focus on the CO2 emissions.

2013 target

The importance of managing our operations to target a 10% relative reduction in CO2 emissions over a three-year period is a metric endorsed by the Board.
