Our business is data migration. However, we also believe that we can help to make the world a better place. Whether it’s our employees, suppliers or our clients, we believe that we have a role to play in improving lives and doing everything we can to improve the environment, both locally and globally.
Where possible, we aim to improve the lives of those we work with through the promotion of positive work / life balance, development of skills, encouragement of healthy lifestyles and support of charities. We support flexible working arrangements, including work from home, and – notwithstanding the limitations imposed by our location – encourage opportunities for employees to take exercise and to cycle or walk to work. We provide a staff benefits scheme to all employees.
We are fully committed to the elimination of modern slavery. We aim to work collaboratively and transparently to lead in bringing an end to modern slavery in our supply chain. We select reputable companies as suppliers, and check modern slavery statements for major suppliers. For more information, see our Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement.
We aim to create work opportunities whenever possible, including providing opportunities for recent graduates. We make full commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant, and have been recognised with a bronze award within the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme. We both employ ex-servicemen and aim to support staff and associates who serve as reservists or in cadet organisations. We try to remove barriers to those seeking employment, and to facilitate work opportunities for small, medium and micro-sized businesses.
The local environment
Whenever possible, we procure goods and services locally in order to reduce our impact on the environment and to increase opportunities for those who trade in our area. We aim to create a positive impact on our local environment, and as such strive to reduce the waste of materials, including water, and to reuse or recycle whenever possible.
We aim to become carbon neutral by 2050, and we are already working to reduce the emissions for which we are responsible, whether by reducing our use of electricity by using more efficient equipment, reducing travel and using electric vehicles, or by becoming almost completely paper-free. For more information, see our Carbon Reduction Plan.
Support of voluntary organisations and charities
We aim to support charities, and make a monthly donation to DENS, a charity providing support to those facing homelessness, poverty and social exclusion in Dacorum. In addition, we sponsor sporting events with the aim of improving inclusiveness and the quality of people’s lives.
