Our community activity is a core part of who we are. It’s engaging for our people and often called out as one of the things that makes BGL Group a great place to work. Since 2016, we’ve donated more than £1.1 million to good causes and impacted more than 200,000 lives.
Our current CSR strategy is structured around three pillars:
Partnerships, Community and Personal.
It’s through these pillars we aim to:
- Contribute a total of £3 million to good causes
- Enable a total of 75,000 volunteering hours
- Positively impact 250,000 lives.
Partnerships – we work alongside Build It International to create opportunities for young people in Zambia through skills training, work experience and essential community building projects.
Together with our people we’ve fundraised four projects in Zambia including three schools and a medical centre. Each of these projects has impacted the future of thousands of children’s lives, ensuring they have a brighter future.
Each year we take 15 colleagues to visit our latest project and meet the community who will benefit from our fundraising. Could you be part of next year’s ZamFam?!
Community – we have a number of people at BGL who are passionate about their local community. Each of our offices has a pot of funds provided by BGL as well as a local committee who get together each month to make decisions about giving to local charities and good causes. We encourage our people to join their local committee and support our communities with their needs.
Personal – we realise that fundraising and volunteering is often a personal thing and we want our people to contribute to causes that mean a lot to them. Our people are entitled to a day’s paid leave to volunteer for a charity of their choice as well as £1000 annual match funding. Since 2016 we’ve enabled more than 16,000 volunteering hours and match funded £220,000 of our employees fundraising.
