Being a member of Heart of the City has enabled us to move our CSR programme to the next level and achieve our current total of 66 apprentices and 97 improvers into work. The expertise from Heart of the City and sharing of best practice with like-minded companies has been invaluable and with the continued support and relationships we are confident of the future success and growth of the K&M Training School
My Heart of the City mentoring sessions have been invaluable for the guidance and practical advice offered. By sharing experience and expertise, my mentor has taken away the error portion of the trial and error of building a formal strategy for a long term, sustainable CSR programme to positively impact our business and our community.
The online tools have played a huge role in helping shape our CSR programme. The help and support I’ve had from working with Heart of the City has been invaluable. As a result, we’ve been involved in many volunteering initiatives including inspiring students interested in stepping into the creative design industry. I think we’ve probably learnt more about ourselves as individuals and a business from being involved in these opportunities.
Our corporate social responsibility plan has played a vital role in engaging our employees and sparking their enthusiasm for volunteering. No matter what sized company you are, it’s possible to establish a successful, innovative CSR programme, and Heart of the City is a great place to start for practical advice and guidance.
Heart of the City is supporting research led by Open University into whether responsible business practices can help your business differentiate.
