Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
CSR is core to Synergy’s way of working as we are continuously looking to improve and enhance our reputation for veracity and good practice. At Synergy we understand that what we do has an impact on the world around us and we positively engage in activities that look to improve any impact we have on our employees, the environment and our local communities.
We believe that a ‘business is only made possible by its people’. We are proud of our staff retention rate and look to maintain and nurture this. We support and respect our employees and demonstrate this in many ways, from offering continuous professional development to offering compassionate leave in extenuating circumstances.
We actively encourage employees to become involved in activities outside of the workplace that look to support a work life balance.
We recognise that our activities have an impact on the environment in terms of raw materials, emissions to air and water and waste generation. We look to minimise this as far as reasonably practicable and have an Environmental Policy that ensures that when we purchase products and services the environmental aspects are considered.
We encourage and support our staff to take a proactive approach to supporting charities. As a result of this we have had a great number of staff participating in charitable activities, anything from feats of endurance, cycle races, sponsored runs and music rock challenges to support medical charities, hospices and youth and education projects. Each year, Synergy makes donations to charitable organisations.
We embrace the idea of inspiring the future generations and regularly engage with school communities, as a result of this have had a number of work experience students from schools/universities spend time in our offices shadowing and working with our staff.
