Features

Our Behavioural Change Programme is designed to help all our people, throughout Freedom, to make the right choices. Originally focused on health and safety attitudes and performance, the 18 month course has been designed to help the business and all its employees look differently at how we approach our work, including achieving our principle aim of Zero Harm.

The Program is a significant investment in the development of our people and a definitive commitment to maintain a culture of continuous improvement – we believe in a questioning and curious workforce who seek to improve everything we do.

The programme itself covers the entire spectrum of Freedom team and impacts the boardroom and the workforces in equal measure as we all share the same goal of improvement, success and Zero Harm.

We at Freedom have created Job Track Enterprise (JTE) Works Management to automate job scheduling and streamline workloads effectively.

With GIS mapping and smart resource allocation functionality, jobs can be quickly scheduled to the most suitable field operative based on skills and geographical location.

This delivers great efficiencies in terms of optimising travelling to and from sites, and the mobile application delivers further cost savings through efficient data capture and avoids the need for paper based documents.
