Corporate Social Responsibility Policy
As a firm we strive to have a positive impact on our people, our local community and on the environment.
We actively recruit young people and school leavers through AAT apprenticeships as well as graduate recruitment programmes, and continue to offer a highly successful training programme, delivering home grown fully qualified accountants at the firm. Continual Professional Development is encouraged and supported and career development is formally reviewed each year through an annual appraisal process. We encourage staff to feel positive and encouraged about our impact on the wider environment and society. They help us to identify where we can be greener and do more to help and support our community.
We minimise our impact on the environment by minimising the use of paper, selecting green suppliers, and reducing and recycling waste paper.
In our office we use energy efficient options wherever possible, select fixtures and fittings from green suppliers, place cleaning contracts with green suppliers using environmentally friendly materials, and adopt a travelling expenses system that encourages low emission options and car sharing.
We support higher education through our continued association with the University of Derby, promote the local community as a bondholder in Marketing Derby, support the local economy through our choice of local suppliers and support charities through our an annual charitable donation, as well as fundraising for Breast Cancer Awareness, Macmillan and Save the Children.
