CPS has a comprehensive internal communications programme, using a variety of channels, in place to ensure that all employees understand the part they will play in execution of our new strategy and are motivated to work together to achieve our strategic goals. This programme is managed by a dedicated resource and creates a framework for regular two-way communication across the company.

We hold regular global business update calls, which are open to all employees, and the Leadership Team regularly visit our key sites to get closer to the business and our people.

We recognise the importance of sharing and celebrating success around the business and one of the ways we do this is via regularly updated news stories in our newsletter and via email.
