Corporate Social Responsibility
Russells Construction is committed to corporate social responsibility, particularly in the communities in which it works and takes up a range of opportunities to engage with local people and charitable causes.
Corporate Social Responsibility isn’t simply about money, it’s about sharing skills and expertise, spreading the site safety and environmental awareness messages, and companies doing their bit when it comes to supporting local charities.
It needn’t cost the earth and can be worth its weight in terms of community relations and staff morale. This might not be easy to quantify but, conversely, an unhappy and demotivated workforce is easy to identify and will have an adverse effect on any business. Russells Construction undertakes regular Corporate Social Responsibility and charity work including:
Russells Construction has developed a health and safety Corporate Social Responsibility programme to help raise site safety awareness among the younger generation. The programme works in conjunction with local schools and encourages youngsters to think cleverly and stay away from building sites, especially during the holidays. Staff who have been involved so far have been incredibly enthusiastic and enjoyed interacting with the children and passing on their knowledge. Many have said that taking part in the school visits creates a huge sense of added job satisfaction.
Leading from the front, the Russells Construction directors and staff take part in numerous charity and team building events, including triathlon and bike rides, raising money for a variety of worthwhile causes. The wider team undertakes a number of national and local fundraisers, with support from colleagues and the directors helping to raise thousands of pounds every year. This aligns closely with the company ethos which is one of teamwork, something which is vital for a motivated and productive workforce.
