Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce are proud to announce the launch of our Corporate Social Responsibility Accreditation Scheme.
The purpose of the scheme is encourage businesses to
- Support Charities – We aim to increase business donations to charities, increase staff volunteering and increase payroll giving
- Support Employees – We will encourage employers to support staff with flexible working, home working, stress management, gender and disability equality
- Support Local Businesses – Encourage businesses to buy from local and UK based businesses to create sustainable business communities and economic stability
To demonstrate support businesses are asked to complete our Scorecard (estimates are acceptable, new businesses can provide forecasts, if you don’t have a policy – simply say no policy). Initially, we will make a judgement on the award to give but as we collect more data will create a more scientific approach to award levels.
