All organizations have responsibilities to their people, their clients and society. We believe a real commitment to corporate responsibility (CR) unites an organization, strengthens its reputation and creates vital links with the communities in which it operates.
With many graduates and qualified employees citing CR as one of priorities, our commitments are helping us to attract, develop and unite great people. CR projects enable our employees to learn from challenging experiences; gain fresh perspectives; enhance their skills; and work with a broad range of people - including senior colleagues.
Clients actively involved in CR often prefer to work with like-minded organizations. Our commitment to transparency and integrity and our strong desire to make a positive difference to the world reflect the beliefs and actions of many of our clients.
There is a strong moral case for CR, and we believe it is right to support selected individuals and groups in need - both as an organization and as individuals.
We are very conscious of our responsibility to make the best use of resources. We are significantly reducing costs by introducing more efficient approaches to resources such as paper and energy, and to business travel.
There is a strong business and overwhelming moral case for CSR: not only to benefit our local communities, but also in attracting and retaining the best people and realizing benefits derived from, for example, good environmental, and health and safety management practices. Increasingly companies are bringing CSR into the heart of their business operations and turning to us for advice.
As a result practicing what we preach is becoming even more important. We strive to inspire, challenge and empower our people to contribute positively to our social and environmental performance.
