Social Responsibility

We understand the interconnectedness of a healthy economy, environment and society. Hand in hand with our commitment to minimise all negative impact on the environment is a commitment to maximise positive impact on people so that we may leave a valuable legacy for future generations.

Social justice and equality of opportunity are fundamental to our approach. We have a clear Ethical Trading Policy and Ethical Employment Policy in line with the ETI base code and the UN Global Compact, protecting workers’ rights, freedom, security and equality.

We pride ourselves on our honest and open approach and place a very high priority on integrity and transparency. Our long term relationships with our clients, suppliers and staff is testament to the way we operate.

Our greatest asset is our staff and we like to show our appreciation in many different ways. Our Employment Policy includes Family Friendly and Flexible Working, salaries that reflect a real living wage and excellent opportunities to train so that every individual can reach their full potential. On top of our generous staff benefits we like to reward staff loyalty with additional holiday and we operate a car share and cycle to work scheme that have their own little rewards.

We want to make a positive contribution to both our local community and wider society that forms part of our progressive legacy. To this end, we have teamed up with various local organisations and charities including Furnicare to whom we donate furniture, Somerset Art Works, the Scrapstore, and local schools and colleges, to whom we donate fabric, leather scrap and various packaging components to be repurposed for creative projects.

We support a local Young Enterprise scheme, sponsor sports kit, equipment and coaching at various schools and organisations. We offer apprenticeships in partnership with our local colleges and internships in partnership with Nottingham Trent University.

We have one big annual event where our team picks a charity they feel passionate about. This could be the Three Peaks Challenge, a half marathon or any adventure our staff come up with.

We regularly sponsor charity events for Maggie’s and we also support the excellent work of Movement On The Ground a humanitarian foundation dedicated to assisting those at the forefront of the European refugee crisis. We donate 10% of the profits from the sale of all of our Bob stools, so that we can help provide safety, shelter, warmth, food, water and medical aid to the growing number of displaced individuals arriving on the Greek island of Lesvos.
