Accenture have provided us with pro-bono technology support to design and implement a new Customer Relationship Management system. Although the project was a one-off in 2015, we established a great working relationship and regularly are in touch with their teams for minor updates and on-going advice.
City Action is one of our sister organisations which provides free employee volunteering brokerage support to businesses based in the City. We frequently recommend their services to clients, and they frequently introduce new businesses to our network.
We regularly work with colleagues at City Philanthropy , an initiative which encourages a new generation of City philanthropists and promote London as a global centre for philanthropy. City Philanthropy colleagues often provide advice to our members which are interested in creating a strong culture of philanthropy in their firm; they also regularly refer businesses into our network to ensure the private sector considers other issues such as environmental management or ethical procurement.
We are proud to have a category in the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards , which recognisesexcellence in companies’ Corporate Community Involvement that benefits Greater London. The Heart of the City category is for companies new to community activities and rewards those who take a strategic and long-term approach to building successful programmes.
