We passionately believe in being a good company. We want to build a business we are proud of, and that people are proud to work for.
In every endeavour we will strive to be a fair and ethical employer, committed to supporting our people and the local communities in which we work.
We aim to:
- Ensure our business operates with respect; promoting equality, diversity and inclusion throughout.
- Maintain a safe and healthy working environment for all.
- Support our staff in having a good work life balance.
- Contribute to good causes that are important to both employees and our local communities.
- Ensure our staff are always paid fairly and above minimum wage.
- Adhere to the Fair Labour Association Code of Conduct.
- Offer training and development opportunities for all, and support professional memberships where applicable.
- Commit to offering annual apprenticeships to invest in developing new skills and supporting local employment.
- Use our position as a client to drive forward an ethical employment philosophy with our suppliers, and ensure we are not supporting any business that utilises forced labour.
- Give every employee an extra day’s annual leave to celebrate their birthday.
- Support the health and wellbeing of staff by offering free flu vaccinations as well as contributing to dental care, opticians, health screenings, specialist consultations and physiotherapy where needed.
- Encourage our staff to invest time in the causes that matter to them, and give a free holiday allowance for any team member wishing to support community projects.
- Undertake charitable giving, and donate a percentage of our profits every year to causes that are close to our business and its people.
