Our social purpose programme enables us to leverage the incredible networks that we have built over the years and fully utilise the established resources we have available. We developed the agenda to have measurable results that positively impact our society and enhance individual personal development. This has been developed in our London business under the guidance of Jo Major, our Social Purpose Lead. We are also rolling this out to some of our other locations internationally throughout this year.
This is a free initiative and aims to support small charities with limited budgets. The platform that we have created connects the HR and marketing professionals in our volunteer network who want to give their time and skills to small charities. This much needed HR and marketing expertise helps organisations grow and achieve more. We run this through our specialist HR recruitment brand Frazer Jones and our specialist Marketing, Sales & Commercial brand, Carter Murray. We look forward to extending this to Taylor Root for Legal & Compliance professionals, and via Brewer Morris for Tax & Treasury experts.
Our Space is Your Space
We invite charities of all shapes and sizes to use our office space in London for external meetings, away days and events for no cost. This continues to be one of our most popular initiatives; we love the impact that this has on the charities we support. In the last year we have supported 35 trustee meetings, 200 training events and are saving the sector over £100k a year.
This is a simple concept that we encourage all our clients to embrace, if you would like guidance on setting up a similar initiative let us know.
Expert Speaker Network
There are over 165,000 registered charities in the UK, with many offering specialist advice and support in areas that could have real tangible business benefits. Our series of quarterly breakfasts showcases the incredible work of the charities that we partner with. All of our speakers are experts in very current and topical people-focused challenges.
The aim of each event is to give the professionals in our network valuable insight into each of the charities specialist areas and empower the audience to effect real change within their organisations. We want to provide you with valuable tools and knowledge that will support development in areas such as improved and enhanced employee health & wellbeing, diversity & inclusion, employability and social mobility.
