Customer & Supplier Partnerships

We’re working together with our customers and suppliers to share best practices and support the progress of our sector.

Our Employee Resource Groups

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are the eyes and ears into the communities they represent and help us truly build a great place to work for diverse communities.

All of our ERGs are open to all Raytheon UK employees, regardless of whether they’re from the community that the ERG represents or not, and are sponsored and supported by a member of our Senior Leadership Team. These groups are empowered to drive meaningful change across the business and help our employees learn more about their area of diversity.

Partnering with the Business Disability Forum the group works to help ensure that our physical, policy and digital estate is accessible by design and that our leaders, managers and employees understand the needs of people with disabilities and long-term conditions.
