My Company

88% of staff agreed

My work is an important part of my life

NB is very supportive of charities. They offer to match employee fundraising which means that funds go to charities that mean something to them personally. They give all staff two days leave for charitable work which has helped local scouts, dog walking and school governorship. They also donated lockers from their basement showers to Broadway homelessness charity for one of their homeless shelters. They have an Environmental Committee, headed up by the EMS Manager, which is supported by representatives from across the company. This committee meets quarterly to review environmental performance of the organisation, and to identify potential improvement opportunities. The company operates a waste recycling system. All employees are educated to put recyclable waste into recycling bins, so as to minimise the amount of waste sent to landfill. Twice a year they run a 'Green Week' on the intranet, to raise awareness of climate change issues and provide advice on how they can reduce their impacts on the environment.
