“Ecovis Wingrave Yeats has always had a strong ethos of giving back. So much so, that in 2016, we established our own charity which focuses on tackling the issue of homelessness in our local community.
We approached Heart of the City because we wanted to progress our responsible business activities to include wider giving-back initiatives and to further inspire our team. As a firm, we believe that getting involved in charitable work not only benefits business, society and the environment, but is also a proactive and inspiring way to engage our employees and create a friendly, socially responsible workplace culture.
Through Heart of the City’s education, mentoring and networking opportunities, we’re learning from others and are working to develop a programme that’s tailored to our organisation’s goals, ethos, strengths and values.
When Ecovis staff were asked to choose causes close to their hearts, they agreed that tackling mental health challenges and inspiring young people who are thinking about their careers were the social issues they felt most passionate about.”
