Our employees are encouraged to take paid volunteer leave or to take time to champion fundraising efforts for a cause of their choice which we match-fund. One colleague builds hand-made box guitars to raise money supporting Crisis the charity for the homeless whilst others cycle, walk, run, bake and even abseil off cathedrals for a host of other UK charities.
We participate in carbon reduction projects to maintain a carbon-neutral footprint. So far, we have planted many trees to preserve the UK’s environment and biodiversity. Green computing is of particular importance to us and we won several Green IT Awards in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. We also adhere to ISO14001 and sustainability initiatives which means that there is an evaluation of suppliers, their technology and their potential impact.
