Supporting our people through the UK lockdowns
The Covid-19 pandemic was a tough time for many people. At MBDA, we were proud to be able to offer continuous employment for all our people throughout each lockdown; providing technology for employees to work from home, and introducing additional measures to ensure the safety of those still needed on our sites.
In addition to physical safety, we introduced new processes that ensured managers had regular mental health check-ins with their teams, especially during long periods of isolation.
We were also able to use MBDA facilities to support the wider communities by producing PPE with our manufacturing equipment.
MBDA work with a range of external organisations to help us benchmark our commitments to equality and inclusion, as well as reach new and diverse audiences.
