PCSG’s commitment to ethical and sustainable business practice has been underlined with our accreditation as a Croydon Good Employer.
We join a fast-growing group of organisations based in the borough – including Ikea, Kier Highways and Mind in Croydon, the mental health charity – all of whom have have demonstrated or are working towards alignment with the Croydon ‘Good Employer Charter’.
The charter includes key criteria around fair pay, workplace equality and diversity and employee wellbeing as well as a demonstrated commitment to supporting the local economy.
Simon Cunnington, our Operations Director, was presented with a certificate by local Councillor, Tony Newman.
Simon said:“It was evident at the well-attended presentation that this diverse group of businesses is genuinely enthusiastic and excited about building the local economy and opening up opportunities for further growth. We are delighted to have received this accreditation.”
In addition to helping the organisations we work with to develop and implement sustainable business practices, PCSG also places a strong emphasis on conducting our own operations with awareness of our impact on the environment, other stakeholders and society.
We do this through measures including:
- Placing equality at the core of our recruitment, training and career development programmes.
- Delivering services under our certified ISO14001 and ISO9001 Quality and Environmental Management System and our services are zero carbon – we reduce where we can and offset the remainder of our carbon impact
In December, Olly Thomas, PCSG’s Business Development Director, joined an expert panel at the Croydon Tech Forum to discuss How to Pave the Path to Digital Transformation.
In common with a growing number of councils, Croydon – London’s largest borough by population with more than 340,000 residents – has identified digital delivery as a key enabler to improving its service provision and to meeting the challenges of tightened budgets.
Earlier this year, it appointed a Chief Digital Officer, Neil Williams, to lead on the design and delivery of the council’s digital services. Neil formerly led the Gov.uk team of 140+ as Deputy Director of the Government Digital Service (GDS).
