Our community

Engaging and supporting our local communities

Through our offices and distribution centres around the world we have strong links with our local communities.

We actively support engagement with them and our employees feel passionately about supporting the local communities they live in.

We encourage our people to be involved with charitable activities and to take the initiative regarding the specific charities they wish to support to ensure maximum employee engagement.

We support a multi-level approach to these activities that includes provision of time and expertise, employee-led fund raising, direct donations, corporate matching of donations, and donations of stock.

Across the world our employees invest their time and money to raise funds for valuable causes, from disaster and cancer charities to community youth projects. During 2016, our global fundraising reached over £100,000.

Some examples of these initiatives include:

  • Employees in the UK raising funds for the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People charity
  • Our Allied business in the United States actively supporting United Way, an organisation dedicated to improving education, income and health in communities across the country
  • Employees in Germany giving their support to aid organisation Plan International by sponsoring children in Uganda
  • Our UK business's call centre supporting the Comic Relief and Sport Relief charities as part of the donation network across the country
  • Employees in France donating to the charity MEDICO Lions Clubs de France


In the UK, our business has been granted patron status of the children's charity, the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children).
