Pillar five: Community
We will encourage our employees to use their skills to support their local community and we will lead the sector in raising money for charity.
Corporate Community Investment (CCI) is no longer an add-on or narrowly defined as 'the right thing to do', but rather companies are increasingly integrating CCI into their core business, strategy and decision-making processes.
There are a number of different ways that companies implement CCI in their business, including:
- Working in partnership with charitable organisations
- Employee engagement
- Payroll giving
- Donating goods to charities
- Cause-related marketing to raise funds and awareness about charities and good causes.
Research by Business in the Community shows that the public believe business should play its part in the community, particularly through using the power of its brand and products to support charities and causes.
Compass Group recognises and appreciates our responsibilities within the communities in which we work and live. Our community investment programme is comprehensive and effective and has helped thousands to reach their potential in education, employment and social inclusion. Our people pride themselves on being good neighbours. They actively support their local communities using, whenever possible, their skills and the locations where they work to provide support to community initiatives.
The next step is to start driving this in a strategic way which engages all Compass Group employees. We will focus on community and charitable activities that involve diet, nutrition, wellness and skills development for our people. We will also aim to engage and inspire employees of the future and promote the sector as an attractive place to work.
