Giving back to others

We make a difference

Giving back to others is part of our culture.  We live and work in the communities we serve, and we encourage all our people to get involved.  We do a lot … and we’re proud of it. ‘We make a difference’ is one of our company values. Our people undertake all kinds of challenges to help raise money for charity and change people’s lives - including running marathons and organising bake sales and quizzes, to name just a few.
Across our regions, we use our skills to give CV, career and interviewing advice to young and disadvantaged people and hold ‘suit drives’ to help unemployed people back to work. Everyone is encouraged to join in, and that includes our CEO who also serves on the Board of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Celebrating our activities through our internal communication channels fosters creativity and generates ideas and engagement across all our regions. As a global corporation, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously and are constantly looking at ways to minimise and mitigate our environmental impact.
