Gatwick Diamond Business Awards
As sponsor and judge, I was pleased to present the Award for Corporate Responsibility to solicitors Mayo Wynne Baxter.
I was impressed with this business – there is a clear culture of Corporate Responsibility within and throughout the company. Extensive charity work is evident both in staff fund raising activities and corporate support by the company itself. Social activities reflect the company’s core business. Environmental and economic issues are also included, e.g. waste & energy management, local suppliers and an interns programme. With an adopted policy and plan, there is an embedded CR culture giving value to the business.
The award was collected on stage by a selection of the company’s own team of Chestnutters – the volunteers coordinating fund-raising activities in aid of local hospice Chestnut Tree House.
It was however a difficult decision with two strong runners-up: International Logistics Group and Young Start Up Talent.
Many congratulations to all the winners that night – more information is available here.
