Corporate Social Responsibility Statement

Introduction

This Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Statement formalises in words how a we manage our business processes to produce an overall positive impact on society. To us Corporate Social Responsibility means being a good corporate citizen and describes business behaviours designed not only to deliver commercial objectives and meet legal requirements but also have a positive social impact on our community and those communities of our customers, suppliers and providers of the services we display on our website and host on our software. It is our desire to run a business responsibly and align our strategy with CSR goals so as to have a significant and positive impact both on the business itself and the communities in which the business operates.

We operate a meritocracy, where all employees are recognised and rewarded on the basis of their performance, effort, contribution and achievements. We expect our employees to act with integrity towards one another and exercise a high standard of business practice and workmanship. We support diversity, fairness and equal opportunities and aim to involve and consult regularly with employees as to the direction of the business.
