Employee Engagement


Last year we proudly announced our bold ambition to not only be the best place to work, but also one of the healthiest workplaces in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

We ask employees to answer several questions on what we call ‘sustainable engagement’ four times a year. It boils down to ‘does our workforce feel proud to work for us, committed to the business and, crucially, properly supported to carry out their job?’ and the answer is yes, and increasingly so! 

Since we ramped up our internal health and wellbeing programme, we have also been tracking whether our employees feel that LRS cares about their wellbeing. 

Through our three survey questions developed with Great Place to Work and based on the BITC Workwell model, we have a real view of how our people are feeling. Currently at 65% positive, it’s just the beginning, but it tells us that we’re on the right track. 

This year we’ve built on our existing commitments to do even more and continue nudging that number in the right direction. As well as continuing with our employee fitness drive, this year we will be increasing our internal conversations around mental wellbeing.

Employee Engagement


Last year we proudly stated that we want to do all we can to become one of the healthiest and happiest places to work in the United Kingdom and Ireland and early indications show that our efforts so far are working.

We ask employees to answer several questions on what we call ‘sustainable engagement’ four times a year. It boils down to ‘does our workforce feel proud to work for us, committed to the business and, crucially, properly supported to carry out their job?’ and the answer is yes, and increasingly so!

Since we ramped up our office health and wellbeing programme our score is up 3%. It’s just the beginning, but it tells us that we’re on the right track.

This year we’ve built on our existing commitments to do even more and continue nudging that number in the right direction.

Here’s a snapshot of current initiatives aimed at getting our people involved and moving, developed by our 17-strong Wellbeing team made up of volunteers from across the business:

It's Okay Not To Be Okay

We’re working to eradicate the stigma around mental health through manager capability training and awareness sessions, and support though our Occupational Health and Employee Assistance Programmes, all of which highlight that it’s okay not to be okay.

Women's Football

This year, Lucozade Ribena Suntory launched its own women’s football team, inspired by our partnership with the England Lionesses and the positive movement with women in sport.

Weekly training sessions are proving incredibly popular, despite none of the team ever having played before.

Tracky Tuesdays

In 2019, Lucozade Ribena Suntory launched Tracky Tuesdays to get our employees moving throughout the working day. The idea is simple – on a Tuesday, everyone is encouraged to wear casual sports or leisurewear, as long as they commit to undertaking some form of exercise that day. It could be a visit to the gym or hosting a walking meeting rather than sitting at a desk. The initiative is proving very popular and growing weekly.

#66DayChallenge


It takes 66 days to make a lifestyle change – and Lucozade Ribena Suntory’s Time To Change initiative is designed to inspire all of our employees to do just that.

The initiative, launched in 2019, aims to help employees make a 66-day commitment to meet a health and wellbeing need. We even have our partners on board to help them to do so – boxer Anthony Joshua, Lioness Nikita Parris, trainer Born Barikor and fitness influencer Vic Spence.

Each partner will lead LRS employees towards one of four different goals that are all-encompassing – and unlike many internal rewards like gym passes, don’t just benefit those who already exercise regularly. It could be starting something new, achieving a personal best, kicking a bad habit or simply doubling down on an existing, healthy practise. The idea is that we create an inclusive initiative that can involve everybody, and help them to meet it with regular check-ins, tips and encouragement.

Whether it’s a physical or mental wellbeing goal, we aim to help all of our people to make a powerful change to their lives in 2019.
