Corporate Social Responsibility
What is Corporate Social Responsibility?
Otherwise known as corporate citizenship, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to how a company operates in terms of the environment and the wider community.
Our mission is to be the best service for digital marketing solutions, and our vision is to be the most recognised creative agency for innovative products. We, at Brace Creative, are passionate about what we do and pride ourselves on excellence, loyalty and creativity.
We are also passionate about having a positive impact on the community and those around us. We believe that we should give back to our local community and help protect our planet. Because of this, corporate social responsibility is very important to us.
Working at Brace
We started with family so it remains a core part of who we are and what we do. Ensuring that our team is happy is crucial, which is why we have an equality and diversity policy in place. From apprentices through to the directors, we want everyone here to succeed and feel like a part of our family.
The Environment and Sustainability
We try our best to reduce the impact that we have on the environment through recycling and encouraging our customers to do the same. Wherever possible, we recycle our waste and actively avoid using single use plastic. We also choose print suppliers that are committed to reducing their impact on the environment, making our print services sustainable.
We love helping those in need which is why each year we select a charity that we fundraise for throughout the year. Our chosen charity for 2018 was CCP. We participated in their Big Sleep Out, volunteered with their Hamper Scamper Christmas appeal, raised money to buy local children Christmas presents and participated in their 10K run, Cheltenham Challenge.
Alongside our chosen charity, we also fundraise for numerous others within the community. These have included Gloucester Rugby’s community charity, Hope for Tomorrow, the National Star College and Movember to name a few and we look forward to helping even more charities in the future!
Investing in Youth
We know that young people are our industry’s future, which is why we invest in them. From work experience to apprenticeships, it is a huge part of what we do. We currently have 3 apprentices at Brace Creative and we love sharing our expertise with them. It is brilliant to see our young apprentices grow and develop over time to eventually become experts in their area. We also have 3 members of staff who started as apprentices and decided to stay at Brace when taking the next steps in their careers.
