The health of our local economies and the strength of our communities are vital for our business and we therefore we have key a role to play in contributing to them.
We encourage all our employees to get involved in Community activities, either those we organise as a company, or initiatives they want to support. We provide employees with paid time to volunteer as well as matched funds for individual fundraising and enabling grants to help support local community projects.
The Community pillar of our sustainability programme has three main objectives; Digital Inclusion; Entrepreneurship; Education, Skills Training and Employment.
Education, skills training and employment
Equipping people with the skills and knowledge to enter and succeed in the technology sector is vital for our future success; our employees dedicate their time and knowledge to help young people and the disadvantaged get education, training and improved employment prospects.
