Curtis Banks and Corporate Social Responsbility
Curtis Banks recognises the importance of strong ethical values in order to meet our responsibilities to our stakeholders. These stakeholders include our customers, our employees, our investors, our suppliers, the community, and the environment.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a core strength for our business, often driven by the many inspirational efforts of our staff.
We have a broad focus on all CSR matters such as environmental, fundraising, community, social awareness and individual support.
Coordinating across all three of our locations we provide support for a range of national activity days, such as Comic Relief, MacMillan Coffee Mornings and Children in Need with bake sales, jumper days, sporting challenges and even skydiving.
We also encourage all staff to fundraise for other charities that may have provided them, their friends or family with support and we are pleased to offer all staff matched fundraising up to £250.00 for the relevant UK registered charity chairty.
Further to this, each of our office locations are supporting the Mental Health and Wellbeing Charity Sector in 2020 and 2021.
