At the conference hosted at St Martin’s house in Leicester city centre, Mark and Diana gave two presentations. Diana’s focused on how to get full utility out of a website without breaking the bank and Mark shared hints and tips on how to optimise social media.
Mark said: “When I set up the business, very few people understood the power of digital marketing. We’ve got eighteen years of experience now and are more aware than ever on the advantage provided by an effective internet presence, so we wanted to share that knowledge.”.
The National Local Law Society Conference (NLLSC) brings together representatives of law societies across the country to share knowledge, raise key issues and note trends impacting the profession. This year it was hosted by Leicestershire Law Society which was founded in 1860 and is one of the oldest law societies in the country.
Diana said: “We really value our partnership with Leicester Law Society and are so proud of them for hosting such a fantastic event. Exhibiting at the conference is just one part of our method to engage with the local community and promote business ties which is something we’re really passionate about.”
Every business is looking into CSR to boost their brand image and reputation. Whether it’s to boost brand image or to entice talent, the benefits are undeniable.
Here at Easy Internet, we look at CSR differently. Rather than a specific activity to tick a box, social responsibility and value are incorporated in every aspect of our business and although we do directly support several charities, that’s only one tiny part of our approach.
It starts with our staff. The team have a diverse range of backgrounds and we pride ourselves on offering flexible work terms as we recognise that everyone has different needs.
Additionally we strive to make our workspace pleasant, having moved to a city centre office in Phoenix Square with large windows and loads of natural light. With public transport links, our employees don’t have to start their day with a tiring commute and can pop out at lunch to get food from any of the nearby shops or cafes.
We treat our clients and our work with respect. We make sure that we keep adding value and that’s why many of our clients have been with us from the start and are still giving us glowing references today.
Community ties are really important to us and we get involved in a variety of ways, from sponsoring Leicestershire Law Society to taking local students for work placements.
Finally, we can’t discuss CSR without mentioning the Your Smalls Appeal which was set up by our director Diana Esho and runs out of our Phoenix Square office. This perfectly demonstrates the way we don’t draw a line between social value and our business. Social value runs through every part of our business.
