Made up of representatives from around the business who have volunteered their time, the Dennis Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) board is tasked with evaluating the company's ethical and social responsibilities.
The group’s aim is to embrace corporate accountability for the company's actions whilst encouraging a positive impact through a variety of activities engaging on a corporate and individual basis with the local community, national charities, and NFP organisations. CSR related activities are open to all employees throughout the organisation.
The CSR board is responsible for all the company’s CSR decisions which focus mainly on three areas; employees and how they can participate, educating and helping the local community and our impact as a company on the environment.
Dennis CSR currently works with four charities as part of its Dennis Chosen Charity program, which includes Rosie’s Rainbow Fund and The Heart of England Forest Project.
Dennis Chosen Charities:
Rosie’s Rainbow Fund – Rosie’s Rainbow Fund supports sick and disabled children in hospitals, schools and in the community and aims to provide a programme of support to families with sick or disabled children and when faced with distressing circumstances such as bereavement to try and alleviate some of the strain.
The Big Issue – The Big Issue is a social enterprise that exists to offer homeless people, and those at risk of homelessness, the opportunity to earn a legitimate income. They produce a weekly entertainment and current affairs magazine which vendors buy for £1.25 and sell to the public for £2.50, keeping the difference. Vendors receive training and support, are allocated a fixed pitch from which to vend, and must adhere to a code of conduct whilst selling the magazine.
The Heart of England Forest Project – A registered charity, which aims to plant and preserve a large native broadleaf forest in the heart of England in partnership with Warwickshire landowner, Felix Dennis.
N.A.B.S. (National Advertising Benevolent Society) – NABS is here to help improve life for those working in the world of advertising and media via the provision of advice, support and career guidance. Alongside crisis financial grants NABS also offers a wide range of everyday services and fundraising events that provide the industry with cross-sector networking platforms.
