The most innovative thing that the organisation has done this year with regard to giving something back, centres on the adoption of a more proactive and structured approach to organising their community and charity programme. The programme seeks to give back to the community and engage their people in a range of volunteering and charitable opportunities through the use of the company volunteer policy, allowing up to two days out of the office per year to participate in community initiatives. Run by an employee-led CSR steering group, the programme has been organised in two main areas; charitable giving and community investment. The objective of the charitable giving element is to ensure both employee involvement and maximum benefit for charity through fundraising and donations. This year Macmillan Cancer Support was selected by their people as the national charity and they set an ambitious target of raising £50,000, enough to fund a Macmillan nurse for one year. Employees can also sign up for payroll giving or apply for matched sponsorship for personal charity fundraising activities. Building on the theme of employee involvement, the community investment element of their programme aims to develop an awareness of the impact of their business on the wider community, encouraging their people to volunteer to participate in community based initiatives. These initiatives range from employability skills workshops to painting and maintenance in the local community. All volunteering activities are made available through their ‘oneCommunity' online volunteering platform.
