In light of the current situation with Russia and Ukraine, we know this is a worrying time for colleagues, particularly those from the region or who have family, friends, and loved ones in the affected area. Please talk to your line manager if you’re personally impacted.

The best possible way to support affected people in Ukraine is to donate to a reputable fundraising charity. 

You’re able to do this directly from your pre-tax salary through our Give As You Earn benefit. Set this up in myHR portal from Monday 14 March – select ‘Benefits’. Find out more here

If colleagues would like to donate, we suggest the Red Cross.
