Our attitude towards social value is simple: we are a commercial business that generate profits to make a difference to others.
We take a strategic approach to giving back to our partnered schools, colleges, communities and charities. We ensure that our approach and results are measured, evaluated and understood to maximise our impact.
Our social aims are to:
Provide local training and employment opportunities for everyone, encouraging female trades and creating fantastic opportunities for young people.
Support local schools and colleges, raising ambitions and aspirations through apprenticeships, work placements and coaching and mentoring opportunities.
Engage with the communities we work in to improve neighbourhoods and wellbeing.
Protect the environment and promote sustainability through fleet intelligence, rewarding green initiatives and responsibly sourcing our supplies.
I want us to encourage and appreciate difference; difference in life skills and experiences, ideas and view points, and recognise these differences as strengths to make a real difference - both at work and improving our communities.
