We're proud to give careers to 3,500 people in Edrington, 70% of whom are based outside Scotland. Our mission is to provide an inclusive and engaging place to work, where everyone can contribute to and share in our success. To achieve this, we have introduced progressive initiatives that focus on engagement, wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, as well as rewarding our people fairly and encouraging them to develop and grow their careers.


Our Wellbeing framework focuses on three key areas: mind, body and lifestyle. It was developed to connect and coordinate all our activities across Edrington, and to be a springboard for new initiatives. In 2020 these included 'Time to Talk' events focused on mental health and our global employee assistance programme.

Employee Engagement

We were pleased with an employee engagement score of 73% earlier this year which is a significant increase from 68% in 2018. While this is just below 76%, which is deemed top quartile, it is an excellent result and evidence that our continued action plans are having a positive impact. The areas we particularly focused on after the last survey were around leadership and communication, both of which have improved significantly. In addition, our China team was awarded the prestigious “Best Employer” certification by our survey provider Kincentric as they scored top quartile in engagement, agility, and talent focus.

With a participation rate of 87% we are confident that we have received feedback from the vast majority of employees, and we remain committed to working with all teams to further analyse the results and put actionable plans in place.

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity makes us stronger. We know that the best results are achieved by great people from diverse backgrounds and by realising the benefits of a truly inclusive culture. We are encouraged by the progress we have made, but determined to do more to give all our people an employee experience where they can be themselves and give their best.
