Doing our part for CSR

Doing our part for CSR

We always want to do our part to better ourselves and how we look after our team, our clients and our planet.

Quick definition:

CSR is about being a socially responsible business and making decisions that benefit both the company and society as a whole.

Yes we have a page all about it – see here

But to quickly break down the 4 most important points to us are listed below:

  • Fair labour practices and human rights protection for employees
  • Transparency and accountability in our business operations
  • Environmental sustainability and responsible resource management
  • Giving back to the community and supporting social causes

Raising Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) within a company is not only beneficial for the community and the environment but can also enhance employee morale, attract customers, and improve brand reputation.

Here are some fun and effective ideas to raise CSR within a company:

  1. Charity events: Organise charity events such as fun runs, bake sales, or talent shows to raise funds for worthy causes. Get employees involved in the planning and execution of these events to foster teamwork and engagement. We’re actually hiking for a good cause in July – you can read more about it here.
  2. Volunteer days: Organise volunteer days where employees can spend time contributing to local community projects or environmental initiatives. This could include activities like tree planting, beach clean-ups, or volunteering at a local shelter.
  3. CSR challenges:  Create friendly CSR challenges or competitions within the company. For example, challenge teams or departments to reduce their energy consumption, increase recycling rates, or raise funds for a specific charity.
  4. Skill-based volunteering: Encourage employees to use their professional skills for volunteering opportunities. This could involve offering pro-bono services to non-profit organisations or mentoring programs for underprivileged youth.
  5. Green initiatives: Implement eco-friendly initiatives within the workplace, such as reducing waste, conserving energy, or switching to sustainable products. Consider setting up recycling stations, initiating a composting program, or encouraging employees to use alternative transportation methods.

If you and your team end up doing any of these fun ideas please send us photos! We love to feel inspired by our clients.
