2015 Responsible Business Review

Employee Volunteering CiC (EV) was founded in 2007 and is a national volunteering service provider. We are a Community Interest Company (CiC) with our activities focusing on benefitting the community with any profits being re-invested for the benefit of the community. We take our responsibilities very seriously and believe in being an active member of our local communities.

Our responsible business plan at EV is the very essence of our business. We believe in reporting transparently on our progress. Our aim is:-

  • To be a responsible business and enhance our reputation with internal and external stakeholders at local, regional and national level. To lead by example.

  • To encourage volunteering participation from our employees and those of our clients by contributing to employee’s personal and professional development and enhancing employee engagement.

  • To encourage more people to change their environment positively and sustainably.

    How did we do in 2015?

    We know that our achievements in 2015 are down to our people, who go that bit extra to deliver exceptional service for our clients and communities. In summary our achievements are as follows:-

  • 18 paid volunteer days taken by EV employees. We have an employee volunteering policy in place to support our people.

  • Over £10k raised for charity through fundraising efforts by our employees.

  • 100% of our employees have had flexible working patterns agreed in 2015.

  • We offer recycling facilities at all of our sites

  • Our Directors have discussed business travel regularly and Skype for Business is used for many business meetings.

  • We have promoted greener transport options on all our volunteering projects and recycled materials and equipment on as many volunteering projects as possible.

    The future

    Our aims for our Responsible Business plan for 2016 have been agreed by the Directors at our Board meeting. These are discussed with our team and we acknowledge that our team are key to our future successes.
