We pride ourselves on team welfare and our commitment to social and corporate responsibility. Charitable initiatives happen regularly, from sponsored sporting challenges close to the heart of individuals to collective group activities and donations to charities. We have close ties with schools and colleges in our community. It is a big step to move from education to employment, so we ensure placements, apprenticeships and mentoring are provided in a caring, responsible and professional way.
We have procedures to minimise our environmental impact. As an active and responsible participant in the WEEE directive (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment), we dispose of materials legally and responsibly. We have an established recycling policy and ensure colleagues can easily recycle everything from envelopes to disused technology. This extends to clients, when we recycle packaging from their new equipment and dispose of their old hardware safely.
We structure client support so that engineers travel the shortest possible distances. We have reduced this travel time dramatically in recent years. We use public transport for longer journeys when possible, and we were the first company in our sector to be awarded Go Ultra Low Company status for our switch to electric and hybrid vehicles.
