Streets Heaver joins the Lincoln Social Responsibility Charter
The scheme showcases ‘star employers’ who undertake activities which benefit their employees and give back to the local community.
City of Lincoln Council recognise and encourage good employers in the city through Corporate Social Responsibility.
The aim of the Lincoln Social Responsibility Charter is to encourage organisations in Lincoln to undertake socially responsible activities which benefit both their employees and the local community. Undertaking socially responsible activities not only benefits employees and the community but also benefits the local economy and the business
Streets Heaver is committed to treating staff fairly. Including paying the living wage and granting leave for employees to engage in community or charitable activities. Apprenticeships schemes are run in conjunction with the college and are offered each year.
The company sponsors a chosen charity and raises money through company initiatives such as fitness challenges and dress-down days. Contributions to food banks and hosting coffee mornings.
“The Charter is a great idea and demonstrates our commitment to Lincoln, our local community and our staff.”
Benedict Heaver, Commercial Director is already looking forward to what can be achieved in 2019 and the benefits the charter brings: “We chose to sign up as it gives a good benchmark to measure the business against. We ticked a lot of the boxes as standard practice but want to raise the bar even further. We are developing new initiatives for this year and continuing our fundraising work.”
