Hill & Smith PLC - Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Hill & Smith is a global organisation with a strategy focused on sustainable growth. Talented people are fundamental to the success of our decentralised business model and help deliver our purpose and growth ambitions.

‘ Attracting, retaining and developing talent is key, we need a highly engaged and capable workforce working within our operating companies and this can only be done by sourcing, developing, supporting, and retaining the right people. Our operating companies are supported by a community of HR professionals who enable the key employment strategies, programmes and processes to ensure that the Group attracts and retains the skills and capabilities required to deliver its strategy.'

Developing and enhancing our employer brand will improve our relationships with our customers, and as a UK publicly listed business, it is important that we meet (and exceed) all governance standards for our employees. Positive employee engagement, a healthy level of attrition and great careers for talented people will increase our productivity, enhance our reputation, and deliver our growth plans.


Our people join and stay with us because we are committed to their careers, their development, and making this a great place to work.

We have regular, transparent career conversations, and we believe that becoming a more diverse organisation is key to our success. We take a long-term view on career planning and succession management. We share our talent across our business, creating great opportunities, and allowing people to gain amazing experiences.

We run management development programmes providing employees with relevant specialist/technical and personal development appropriate to their roles and aspirations and in line with the organisational strategy.
