Corporate Social Responsibility
We recognize that our business doesn’t exist in isolation nor is it purely about generating profits. Our employees depend on our business for their livelihood. Customers, suppliers and the local community are all affected by our business and what we do.
We recognize that our business doesn’t exist in isolation nor is it purely about generating profits. We seek to understand our business’ impact on the wider world and consider how we can use this impact in a positive way by taking a responsible attitude, going beyond the minimum legal requirements and following the cultural principles which guide our operation.
Gavin Jones Ltd is proud of its employees, who are widely considered to be amongst the best in the industry. With our recruitment policy based on the principle of “recruit for attitude, train for skill”, any successful applicants will bring with them enthusiasm, problem-solving skills, a proactive approach, bags of initiative and a desire to perform at the top of their game.
Wherever possible we engage local people to work on our contracts across the country, creating new job opportunities in the process. We work actively to support local organisations and charities and work with Young Enterprise to support school students as Business Advisors. We endeavour to undertake community projects nationwide involving schools, disadvantaged groups etc. where possible.
Our mission is to enhance the landscape, whilst protecting the environment. Recycling initiatives, renewable energy sources, grey water harvesting, bee keeping, biodiversity surveys and advice, Green Travel/Eco-driving policy – just some of the examples of how we ensure our impacts on the environment are positive, together with an ongoing commitment to reducing our carbon emissions by 3% per annum.
