We have an ongoing programme of donating to good causes and charities. We encourage our colleagues to do the same and get involved in fundraising activities. We support our students by advertising and sharing their fundraising stories and successes. To help facilitate this, we grant all of our colleagues the opportunity to take one day of paid leave per annum to dedicate to charity fundraising. We call this “A day to make a difference” Click on the link to read our stories and see our pictures.
Equality of opportunity
We are committed to never discriminating against age, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or disability. We want our workforce to reflect the diversity of our customers. Where possible, we operate a flexible working policy (including homeworking) to facilitate the needs of our colleagues. We also invest in the continual training of our staff to ensure our values and policies are always embedded throughout the company.
Open and Honest Communications
We are happy publish statistics measuring our corporate and social responsibility progress. This includes a breakdown of employees by gender and ethnicity; energy use; social investment; health and safety and expenditure on travel.
We continually strive to be more energy efficient and to reduce our impact on the environment. This includes a commitment to recycling and waste management; utilisation of homeworking and web conferencing to reduce travel.
Value for money
We continually monitor the market to ensure that our prices remain competitive, and we always strive to offer the best value for money. We ask for and review feedback from students at every event to ensure we are providing an excellent service.
