All employees are recruited locally and local suppliers are used wherever possible and practical. As well as having an environmental policy, championed by a director, they created The WEXAS Travel Foundation, through which staff and customers are brought together to make a real difference to communities around the world. They have progressively reduced the amount of paper and marketing materials used by the company through greater thought on who needs what. All literature is printed on a wood free matt which is recyclable and environmentally friendly. Staff are encouraged to nominate a charity which will benefit from the donations from monthly dress down Fridays and other fundraising activities.
