Responsible Business Week 2016


Access Point - Responsible Business Week


A responsible business is committed to building a fairer society and a more sustainable future, with Business In The Community breaking this down into five key areas:



Environment - Using our natural resources more sustainably.



Employees - Ensuring that age, gender, health and race do not limit an employee's engagement and success in the workplace.



Education - Ensuring a young person's success at school and beyond is not determined by their social background.



Employment - Helping people overcome disadvantage by increasing access to sustainable, good employment.



Enterprise - Creating jobs and vibrant communities by supporting small, local businesses.



As Responsible Business Week arrives again it’s a great opportunity for us to look back at what we’ve achieved over the last 12 months and to review our responsible business commitment going forward.






Last year we started our Responsible Business Week blog series highlighting the reasons we were #ProudToWorkFor Access Point.


We were proud of the work we do to support charities, to support our local food bank, proud to help the environment and cut back on waste, proud to support employee growth and development and most importantly, we were proud to be a family.


We’re still proud of all of those things, but now we’re proud to be doing them even better!


Our paperless office and recycling commitments are still going strong with not only our daily waste items being reused but also unneeded building materials from our office refurb being given new leases of life as bespoke benches, tables and even a unique bar for all our celebrations!

Our support for community charities including the Southport Foodbank continued and has now morphed into a volunteering challenge that we will talk about later in the week.  Our commitment to training and development has evolved and rocketed in the launch of an in-house training academy, offering accredited sales training courses and career opportunities to local recruits showing potential without experience.
