We believe that a commitment to the principles of corporate social responsibility (CSR) not only makes good business sense but also complements our core business strategy and our values as a business. Our approach focuses on four key areas:
We recognise that we play an important role in our local communities and we aim to make the communities in which we operate better places. We encourage and empower our employees to get involved with their local communities and use their skills to help create a mutual benefit.
We strive to ensure all colleagues enjoy their work and have opportunities to consistently amaze our clients through their friendly expertise. As such, we continue to invest in our Talent Exchange and Leadership Development programmes and actively look for ways in which we can promote and increase the diversity of our workforce.
We know that our work has an impact on the environment and that we have a duty to manage that impact in a responsible and ethical manner. We do this through identifying all significant environmental impacts and putting processes in place to prevent, reduce and mitigate them. This also makes good business sense.
We are committed to maintaining high standards amongst our suppliers. We oppose the exploitation of workers and we will not tolerate forced labour or labour which involves physical, verbal or psychological harassment or intimidation of any kind. We will not accept human trafficking or the exploitation of children and young people in our business and undertake all reasonable and practical steps to ensure that these standards are maintained.
