Our responsibility for people extends beyond those directly employed by McLaren to include all those who form part of our supply chain. We aim to create a diverse environment and invest in relationships that develop the industry. We address the construction skills shortage and promote the wider UK economy through supporting the training and development of local construction trades and creating long-term employment.
As part of our commitment to honesty and transparency, we have developed a set of comprehensive policies.
These policy documents can be viewed here.
McLaren are proud of the exemplar service we offer our customers. To ensure business continuity now and in the future, we recognise the need to develop, attract and retain the best colleagues. We are only as good as our supply chain partners and therefore we aim to extend our internal training to our key suppliers and take our responsibility under the Modern Slavery Act seriously.
Our People Policy objectives are focussed around three key areas of influence:
- Ensure a safe, fair and equitable work environment for all
- Attract, develop and retain talent
- Create opportunities

- Implement a robust Talent Management strategy to identify and develop leaders within the company
