Our focus on innovation

Our culture of innovation

Our culture of innovation is what drives us as an organisation. Which is why it's something we nurture in every area of the business, and actively encourage our people to embrace. You can see it in the variety of projects we tackle with our clients, and the positive difference they make.

A great example of our commitment in this area is the 'Innovation Den' - our in-house challenge that gives onsite teams the time and resources to develop their own ideas, before pitching them to an expert panel. Successful teams then receive a project sponsor and the financial backing they need to make their idea a reality. For example, the repackaging and repurposing of waste detergent as a high performance truck wash.

Another project for instance, led to a large distillery recovering energy from the by-products of whisky production.
