North of Tyne Good Work Pledge awarded to Leonardo in Newcastle

Leonardo’s Newcastle site has been awarded an ‘Advanced Good Work Pledge’ by the North of Tyne Good Work Pledge awarding body, due to the quality of the working practices in place at their site, which opened last year.

The Good Work Pledge was created by the North of Tyne Combined Authority to recognise outstanding employers who demonstrate that they perform to a high standard around their main categories of performance based on five criteria pillars:

  1. Pillar One – Valuing and Rewarding your Workforce
  2. Pillar Two – Promoting Health and Wellbeing
  3. Pillar Three – Effective Communications and Representation
  4. Pillar Four – Developing a Balanced Workforce
  5. Pillar Five – Social Representation.

Caroline Preston, Good Work Pledge Project Lead and Economy and Policy Advisor at the North of Tyne Combined Authority, said: “The panel thoroughly enjoyed reading Leonardo’s application and appreciated the time and effort taken to tell us about all the ‘good work’ practices within the business. We are delighted Leonardo has joined the Good Work Pledge community and we look forward to working together.”

Mark Stead, SVP Radar and Advanced Targeting, who is leading the development of the Newcastle site, added: “This important award reflects the drive and commitment already being ingrained at our newest UK site. It is a brilliant form of validation that we are on the right track and this pledge will help us explore further routes through which we can excel and grow in the future.”
