Corporate Social Responsibility

All the team members work with social responsibility in mind.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Social & Economic Impact

Everyone deserves a second chance. Research shows that employment is the key factor to help reduce re-offending rates in the UK. “Employment can reduce re-offending by 50%” (source: No offence).

As advocates of helping hard-to-reach groups develop new skills and gain nationally recognised qualifications together with the full support available through our employment support team, n-ergy has become a trusted brand within the offender reform and education/ training sectors.

Our Employment Support team will help them with job preparation whilst in custody and help secure sustainable employment on release so that they may integrate successfully into their local communities. At n-ergy, we also offer employment opportunities for ex-offenders within our company. In doing so, we believe we make a wider contribution economically by helping to reduce re-offending and crime rates UK wide.

In addition to supporting ex-offenders into work on release, our aim is to tender for and win funded government contracts in Wales and England to support NEETs (Not in education, employment or training) to deliver employability support in the community.  We are also aiming to increase our collaborative working practices to create further added value for us and our partners eg. over 50’s project with PRIME Cymru; vocational training and employability support for The Youth Estate.

The Armed Forces Covenant

We endeavour in our business dealings to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant as we recognise the value that serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families can bring to our business.

Charity & Community Support 

Our chosen Charity of the year for 2018/19 is Tenovus Cancer Care.

Tenovus Cancer Care

is a registered charity and founded in 1943, by ten businessmen in South Wales. Tenovus Cancer Care is recognised for its pioneering work in carrying out  vital research in the causes of cancer. The charity has launched a number of innovative projects including a mobile support unit, 15 choirs across Wales and a free support line (0808 808 1010) open 8am to 8pm, 365 days of the year! This charity was chosen by our Head Office and Wales regional teams.

 

Other Initiatives

We also allow time off for employees at our Head Office to make a blood donation to the Welsh Blood Service when they visit with their mobile unit and ultimately help to save lives.

We encourage all our employees to play their part in the protection of the environment and making cost-effective savings that can be reinvested into our business and employee incentives.

Top tips from n-ergy’s Chief Executive, Donna Turner-Kot
  • Promote Corporate Social Responsibility as a way of doing business rather than just an “add on”.
  • Encourage all employees to improve their skills and be empowered to make decisions.
