• Office Friendly launches CSR programme

        • Office Friendly has partnered with the South Yorkshire Community Fund to develop a Corporate Social Responsibility programme on behalf of the membership. The programme is aimed at raising money and volunteering for local causes.

          Initially, the programme will be led by the Office Friendly team with individuals coming forward with their support. The launch coincided with a donation to Mind, a charity that provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. So far, £500 of this money went to local causes but this year, with a full calendar of CSR activity, Office Friendly aims to donate ten times that amount.

          Julie Hawley, Managing Director said, “now, with our new strategic direction, as Business Development Specialists, the time seems right to take the initiative. It runs parallel to what the Office Friendly brand is all about: giving back, supporting communities, and developing partnerships. Moreover, it makes good business sense too – not just for us, but for the wider membership. After all - we’re all friendly dealers, aren’t we.”

          We can expect to see a calendar of exciting fundraising events, covering everything from bake days and charity raffles to endurance tests and local volunteering. The programme will focus on struggling young adults, providing the support people need to develop rewarding and meaningful lifestyles. Businesses can also participate in the existing So-Go-Eco scheme, Office Friendly’s unique, low-cost environmental accreditation.

          Julie added, “this programme isn’t just for us. We’re encouraging members to get involved with their own activities and ideas and share their personal CSR experiences, too. Together, we have a huge reach and can drive real social change in all our local communities.”
