Corporate social responsibility
Edify Management’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) aims to align our business values, purpose and strategy with the needs of our clients, whilst embedding such responsible and ethical principles into everything we do.
The Chief Executive Officer is responsible for the implementation of this policy and will make the necessary resources available to realise our corporate responsibilities. The responsibility for our performance on this policy rests with all employees throughout the company.
1. Basic standards of conduct
We will conduct our business with openness and integrity. We will not make promises above those which we reasonably foresee we can deliver. We will not offer, give, seek or receive, either directly or indirectly, inducements or other improper advantages for business or financial gain and no employee may offer, seek, give or receive any gift or payment which is, or could be, construed as such.
The business, and its employees, will work within a robust environment of mutual trust and respect. This includes, but is not limited to, respect for colleagues, contractors, suppliers and clients.
3. Honesty and accountability
We will communicate our policies, objectives and performance openly and honestly to our employees and to others with an interest in our activities, including clients and suppliers. We will encourage them to communicate with us and will seek their views.
4. Demonstrable compliance
As a minimum, we will meet or exceed all relevant legislation. Where no legislation exists, we will seek to develop and implement our own appropriate standards.
5. Investment in employees
Our people are our greatest asset. We strive to be a responsible employer by creating an environment that gives employees the desire and ability to flourish. We place great importance on professional and personal development, and we are eager to provide employees with the tools to succeed.
We will take all reasonable steps to manage our operations so as to minimise our environmental impact and to promote good environmental practice. We will set and follow high standards in energy efficiency and safety. We will continue to promote responsible and sustainable methods of energy efficiency.
We will conduct our business relationships with integrity and courtesy. We are committed to offering our clients the highest possible standards of service. Our aim is to build long-term relationships with our clients and our suppliers.
We will build relationships with our clients, suppliers and the local community and consider our impact on the local community.
We will encourage dialogue with local communities for mutual benefit, and support and encourage our employees to help local community organisations and activities in our region.
We promote equality and consider the interests of our employees including their welfare, mental health and health and safety. Our ultimate aim is the happiness of our employees through their worthwhile and satisfying employment in a successful business.
The effectiveness of the CSR policy statement will be monitored and reviewed at least annually by the Directors to ensure the Company’s continuing compliance with any relevant legislation and to meet new business requirements and to identify areas in need of improvement.
