OUR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PRINCIPLES  

Our conduct  

We aim to adopt the highest professional standards, and not to act in such a way as to compromise our firm’s integrity. We actively promote respect between our employees and members in their dealings with each other, clients and other third parties.  

Our working environment  

We recognise that our employees are our most important resource. We actively seek to offer our employees a positive and healthy working environment while ensuring that they have rewarding careers and job satisfaction. We seek to ensure that all employees have access to the training they need both for their own development and to enable them to deliver a high-quality service. We consider all employees to be equal, and we aim to create a working environment which is free of unlawful discrimination. 

Our community  

In considering our impact on the community we have resolved to sponsor or otherwise support local charities. We will allow members of employees time off work to enable them to carry out work in support of their chosen charity and to encourage dialogue with local communities and groups for mutual benefit.  

Our company may initiate and support community investment and educational programs. For example, it may begin partnerships with vendors for constructing public buildings. It can provide support to nonprofit organisations or movements to promote cultural and economic development of global and local communities.
