UK Engage’s charitable donations & ethical employment
1 April 2016
As a business that is committed to our corporate social responsibility programme, we are constantly considering the broader impact of our company actions. UK Engage ensures that we are acting responsibly in key areas including the environment, wellbeing of employees and the wider community.
This year UK Engage asked members of staff to choose charities which were close to their hearts. Once we had all the nominations, we had a clearer idea of where charitable donations would go to for 2016. The charities which staff nominated were Cancer Research, UNICEF and Help for Heroes.
Also, as part of our activity within our local community, we support local charities and outreach programmes, including Circus Starr. Circus Starr is a not-for-profit organisation which exists to support local businesses and local children’s charities. UK Engage purchases tickets from a unique donated ticket programme that allows thousands of children to attend free shows.
When recruiting staff, UK Engage has always been eager to encourage diversity in the workplace, providing equal opportunities for staff regardless of gender, age marital status, sexual orientation, disability, race or religion.
The company’s appraisal system provides two-way communication. As the employer, UK Engage can review an individual’s strengths and progress and construct development plans for each person and in turn, employees can have the opportunity to discuss their role and thoughts about the company in a confidential, friendly and safe environment.
Other factors that reflect our socially responsible approach include:
• Offering appropriate levels of remuneration and rewards. UK Engage regularly benchmarks its levels of pay against other companies to ensure it is competitive. And, in relation to the Government’s new National Living Wage, we will pay employees the new rate of pay, whatever their age, according to contract terms.
• Development and training is offered so employees are better able to carry out their duties and are more motivated in their work.
• The creation of a healthy and safe working environment so employees feel safe at work.
• The prevention of any form of harassment in the workplace.
UK Engage has various policies, procedures and accreditations such as ISO 9001, ISO 27001, Customer Service Excellence (CSE) and Investors in People (IIP), which help to guide us and focus our corporate social responsibility efforts with both internal and external stakeholders.
