Culture & values

Giving More

The value of giving that lies at the core of Edrington’s company history is something that every employee cherishes and is proud of. Our principal shareholder The Robertson Trust is the country's largest independent grant-making trust. It gives £20 million a year to charities in Scotland.

Sustainability

Edrington was created to be a company that makes a positive contribution to the communities where we live and work. We have worked for more than 160 years to build a responsible and sustainable business that respects the environment around us. We are working hard to embed sustainability across our entire business. We depend on our people, our suppliers and partners as the climate crisis demands action from us all.

Benefits

Recognition

We know that recognition for a job well done, going out of your way to support colleagues or for making an exceptional contribution is important. That’s why we thank our employees for demonstrating the behaviours and values of a great Edrington colleague. To facilitate this thanks, we have a group-wide approach to encourage visible and regular employee recognition. This allows our colleagues to recognise each other’s efforts ‘in the moment’ and aligns to our Leadership Standards, culture and values, particularly our ethos of Giving More.

Modern Family Leave

We know that the success of our business is founded on developing, and realising the benefits of, a truly inclusive and diverse culture. We want to ensure that we foster an environment that allows great people to thrive and feel supported through their career and as their circumstances change. Modern Family Leave incorporates the widest definition of maternity, paternity, adoption and parental leave policies, providing a consistent inclusive approach that is gender-neutral and includes adoption and surrogacy. At the core of the policy is the commitment to provide 26 weeks' paid leave for parents following the birth or adoption of their child.

Giving More Leave

Edrington's values are central to the way the company works and the success it has achieved. Ensuring that Edrington retains a competitive edge and effective employee base, while balancing the company commitment to our charitable activity, is a key enabler to allow Edrington to stand apart from other employers. The value of giving lies at the core of Edrington’s company history and it is something that every employee is proud of. To support this, we provide four Giving More leave days every year to all employees to allow them to spend time on the causes that they are passionate about.
