2 Sisters Food Group has launched a new colleague suggestion scheme called TalktoMe that aims to develop a ‘culture of transparency and honesty’.

The just-launched line of communication at major poultry processor aims to encourage employees from across the whole business to contact TalktoMe to share their ideas on ways to improve the organisation.

Ranjit Singh, president of Boparan Holdings Ltd which owns 2 Sisters, said “At 2 Sisters we are creating a culture of transparency, trust and honesty. We have learnt a great deal from our journey over the last six months and want to continue driving forward to become a better business.

“TalktoMe is a way of celebrating the brilliant things we are doing around the business, sharing best practice and exploring new ideas. Our colleagues are vital to the success of our business and we want to ensure they have a voice to share their valuable insights.”

Communications advisor, Emily Wildbore is managing the new initiative.

She explained: “TalktoMe is a great opportunity to explore the innovative thinking we have here at 2 Sisters and for colleagues around the business to share their suggestions with the senior management team. All ideas are welcomed, no matter how big or small.

“The TalktoMe team is really looking forward to giving feedback on the ideas received.”

TalktoMe comes after a number of initiatives 2 Sisters has taken to increase transparency. Many of these initiatives have been announced following recent non-compliances.

The business states it was the first organisation to publish its UK Poultry Audit results in 2017 and plans to share information on its whistleblowing and health and safety data over the coming months.
