Responsibility

Responsibility

We're committed to being a responsible business.  For us, that means that we don't just want to create profit, we also want to play our part in securing a fairer world and a more sustainable future.  This needs to be about much more than just a few disjointed or eye-catching initiatives. We are endeavoring to bring responsibility into the engine room of how we run our company. 

There are three key strands to how this works.  You can find out more about them by clicking on the headings below:

Our 10% pledge

Each year, Society gives at least 10% of its profits to 'The Society Foundation'.  This is a charitable trust that we helped to set up in 2014.  Its purpose is to provide grant funding to organisations or programmes that are trying to help potentially vulnerable people into employment. Society's colleagues also support the Foundation through fundraising efforts and by volunteering their time. 

Our business actions

Society is an active member of Business in the Community and participates in many of its flagship campaigns and programmes.  For the past two years we have been one of the main national sponsors for Give & Gain Day, the UK's largest employee volunteering event. We also host an annual work placement as part of the Ready For Work scheme, an initiative aimed at getting people who have recently been homeless back into full-time employment.  To find out more about our business actions, you may want to read our 201320142015 or 2016 corporate responsibility reports.

Our client portfolio

Whilst we don't want to set ourselves up as the moral arbiters of the global economy, we have nonetheless always known that there are certain organisations that we would not want to work for.  With this in mind, Society has established a simple framework that serves as an internal checklist for us when deciding how to balance the various strategic, ethical and reputational issues inherent in taking on a new client.
