Corporate Social Responsibilty
A sustainable environment is at the heart of our business
Exponential-e is committed to playing its part as active corporate citizens through an ethical and lawful approach to business. We actively share our resources and expertise to make a positive impact on the wider community.
We have undertaken the follow initiatives in the arena of CSR to positively influence our organisation and the community that surrounds us -
The launch of the Exponential-e Academy
We believe in investing in people regardless of age or experience. The perfect demonstration of our commitment to considering applicants of all levels is the Exponential-e Academy.
The first Exponential-e Academy was launched in September of 2008 with ten entrants beginning a dedicated programme to enable them to become the sales consultants of the future. The programme, an intensive training course running for 8 - 15 weeks is designed to equip each of the trainees with the skills, knowledge and experience to begin a career in telecoms sales world. This was coupled with dedicated support and mentoring programmes to give them front line exposure of the wider business.
One of the aims of the Academy was to offer job opportunities to local residents. It can be challenging in this economic environment to be successful in a job with no experience, however our academy gives candidates, with drive and enthusiasm, a chance to shine. We thrive on providing this opportunity for local people.
Making a difference through volunteering and charity work
Each year Exponential-e makes donations to charities where customers and staff have an affinity or charities that impact our local communities around our offices. We undertake a variety of events to raise awareness and support for these causes.
We recognise that our employees can make a positive contribution to the community through lending their time and expertise to local projects. In recognition of this we arrange for a team of employees to take a day away from the office to assist in a local project once a quarter. These projects have seen staff run interview skills training for young people, sort food and clothing donations and carry out conservation work in local parks and farms. These challenges are not only designed to meet the community needs but provide networking and development opportunities for all employees.
We get behind and fully promote ‘Green’ corporate practices, so we ensure we recycle paper, plastic and aluminium in all of our offices.
Clear desk and think before you print policy
To reduce the amount of paper that is used in the business we have a ‘think before you print’ policy that applies to all staff. We also have a ‘clear desk’ policy where every desk must be clear before staff leave which has enabled us to reduce the level of paper we use.
