Corporate Social Responsibility
Our contribution to the communities and people around us.
Giving something back
We are committed to working alongside local charities and our community. Each year we ask colleagues to put forward their suggestions for one charity we will commit to supporting and invite everyone to vote. This process raises the profile of a whole range of charities dear to our people and gives us a chance to make a significant contribution to one in particular. We then come together in offering our support through raising the profile of that charity along with funds to support it and investing time in other activities to further its work. We value our charity connections and the rich experiences they give us.
This includes working with businesses, pro bono work, sponsorships and environmental initiatives. Our goal is to find solutions to help those in our community succeed.
