We are pleased to announce that Gardner Leader has been awarded a Silver CSR Accredited status.
The Corporate Social Responsibility Accreditation takes four categories in to account; environmental, community, workplace and philanthropy. The accreditation shows that Gardner Leader has integrated social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns in to the business operations and strategy.
Intrinsic to our ethos as a firm, supporting the community has always been important to Gardner Leader. Staff at all levels are encouraged to be involved with the CSR Group. As detailed in our CSR Report, we’re proud to say that we believe the firm is fairly unique as all staff have a say in which charity Gardner Leader supports annually. With regular fundraising activities, employees and clients of Gardner Leader have raised in excess of £21,500.00 since 2014. As well as providing fundraising opportunities, staff offer their time in sharing their knowledge and skills.
In addition, we sponsor local community events, and deliver business mentoring opportunities to schools and university students. We are proud that five of our Partners are Trustees for charities at local and national level, with many more employees being personally involved with charity work.
We believe that staff engagement is paramount to our success and something we believe contributes to excellence in client service. We are also proud to offer all employees opportunities to get involved with business improvement. In addition, staff wellbeing is vitally important and we feel that by having an active CSR Group offers opportunities to contribute to our staff’s feeling of wellness.
Gardner Leader takes its responsibility to the environment very seriously and is constantly looking at areas for improvement. Encouraging staff to work paperless, where this is not possible, we support recycling and effective waste management.
We are delighted to have been given silver status and will continue to lead the way in terms of promoting a positive workplace and getting involved in the local community.
