The Shaw report, published in March 2016, emphasised that our customers want us to focus more on their needs and made a number of recommendations to help us do so.
Those recommendations have now been integrated into our transformation plan, ‘Delivering for our customers.’ It sets out our plans to place our customers at the heart of what we do. Our aim is to become more customer focused, more cost competitive, to attract more private investment, and to deliver a safe, caring and collaborative culture.
