Our Policy

Corporate responsibility means different things to different businesses. For us, corporate responsibility means acting responsibly in all that we do and adding value, not only in our commercial activities, but beyond these to support all our stakeholders, including the communities in which we work. Our responsible behaviours underpin our business, enhance our multiple relationships and further motivate our people. The result is a better and more sustainable business.

As part of our CSR policy, looking after the community in which we work is important to us and this is most commonly done via raising money for charities as well as being part of giving back days.

Our CSR strategy helps us to achieve our business goal. By engaging with our stakeholders, identifying the social and environmental impacts of our business and responding to them we support the creation of a financially stable business.

This benefits us and our clients by allowing us to build on opportunities and reduce risks, so creating competitive advantage. It also ensures that we attract and retain the right people to deliver our strategy.

How we are making a difference

We aim to create lasting value for our clients and wider society through our daily business operations. We also invest our time, money and skills in supporting the communities in which we operate, to tackle some of society’s most pressing issues.

Fundraising is an important part of raising money for a good cause. Charities rely on donations in order to carry out any charitable projects that they have planned and without these, they would not be able to do the work that they do and many people in need would not benefit.

Everyone at LMS always digs deep and gives whatever they can, but in 2018, we thought we would do things a little different. Instead of having lots of charities being supported by LMS throughout the year, we have decided to condense our efforts and have one annual charity to support. Every donation matters but by doing this, it means that all of our hard earned pennies can go that little bit further to help change the lives of others.

For 2018, the annual charity is Alder Hey Children’s Charity

 

Donation matching

Lots of employers sponsor matched gifting programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. This year LMS has implemented this meaning that any money raised throughout 2018 for the chosen charity of the year be matched pound for pound by LMS, up to a maximum value.

 

Employee volunteering

We actively encourage our employees to volunteer for local projects by giving their time, skills and expertise. It’s a practical scheme and we have cemented it in place by giving every employee paid time off to contribute to local initiatives.

There are lots of exciting volunteering activities planned for this year – watch this space for regular updates.
