Does Corporate Social Responsibility go far enough?

Does Corporate Social Responsibility go far enough?

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.
