Our social impact

Relationships really are at the heart of all we do and that starts with our own team. Regular company days, wellbeing and ‘Giving Something Back’ initiatives bring everyone together to create a sense of purpose and belonging.

Our four key areas of Giving Back, enabling Wellbeing, supporting Inclusion and Diversity, and being conscious about our Environment and sustainability, show that commitment.

 

 

Wellbeing

We promote a culture of care to support the physical and mental wellbeing of all our people, which impacts everyday interactions as well as bigger initiatives.

Our thriving wellbeing team initiate some amazing projects all year round to make sure our people are supported. From flexible working through to encouraging ‘walkie-talkies’ and training Mental Health First Aiders from across the business, we know it’s the little things that make a difference.

Giving Back

At Eton Bridge, we believe in a responsibility that goes beyond business success; it’s about shaping a better future for everyone.

Our Giving Back agenda lies at the heart of our organisation. The care and passion which underpins our culture also drives us to make a difference in the local community and with initiatives to support disadvantaged communities across the UK and around the world. We firmly believe that creating a positive impact is a collective effort. All employees have two ‘Giving back’ days each year to support charities of their choice.

As a business, Eton Bridge has chosen 3 core charities, contributing to communities across the UK and globally to reflect the footprint of our network. We’re proud to partner with Alma Beacon in Windsor, SOS – Silence of Suicide, and Street Child United.

Inclusion & Diversity

We value diversity in all its forms and believe strongly in the powerful impact of empowering individuals to bring their whole selves to work.

We are very proud of our inclusive culture, celebrating our individual differences. Our Inclusion & Diversity Ambassador group led by passionate volunteers from across the business continues to challenge our own thinking and bias.

We recognise that diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences fuel creativity and lead to better decision-making.

Environment & Sustainability

We’re working towards reducing our impact upon the environment and to towards more sustainable solutions for our business.

Our Environmental & Sustainability team underpin our commitment to a greener organisation. Both as a business and as a group of individuals, we look for ways to improve our care of the planet. As a business we measure our carbon footprint and set targets to reduce it.

We encourage our employees to consider their impact upon the environment also, by giving them the tools and knowledge to make a difference and by empowering them to be involved in environmental and sustainability initiatives throughout the year.

Organisational culture cannot merely be words and good intentions – authenticity comes about through actions that impact meaningfully on people’s lives. Our values are not just words on a wall; they are how we behave, they are what we do.
