Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance
We are delighted to be a part of the vibrant Whitechapel community and have recently partnered with the Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership (THEBP). THEBP provides volunteer-based programmes and workshops aimed at raising the aspirations of young people through developing employability skills and an understanding of the world of work. To get the ball rolling, members of our HR team conducted mock interviews and feedback sessions with students from the Morpeth Secondary School and were very impressed by their mature, “can do” attitude. We regularly invite staff to get involved with similar initiatives and tend to run a number of schemes each year. We also support the various Whitechapel homeless charities like the “Whitechapel Mission” along with a number of causes of special importance to members of staff.
We are enjoying working with a large number of innovators in the fields of green energy and renewable materials and heartened by the advances they are making. In the office, we are always looking for ways to save energy and reduce waste. To this end, we have installed sensor lights and added multiple recycling points in our offices, radically reduced our use of paper and offer incentive schemes to encourage staff to cycle to work. We also have a very active Sustainability Group who are continually investigating ways in which the firm and individuals can do more to protect the environment.
We live in stressful times and run initiatives to help staff to protect their mental health. These include Mindfulness sessions and access to BUPA’s Healthy Minds service. We have also run campaigns for Mental Health Awareness and the charity Jonathan’s Voice and signpost various tools for staff via our internal website.
We are keen to provide an inclusive environment and are running a number of initiatives to increase the diversity of our team. We are members of IP Inclusive and have been actively involved in Women in IP, IP & ME, IP Out and IP Ability.
