We take our Corporate Social Responsibility seriously.

We are committed to operating our business in a manner that is both sensitive and responsible.

We will do this with proper regard to our legal obligations and according to relevant directives, regulations and codes of practice.

Our operations have an effect on the communities and environment in which we operate. In light of this, we are committed to operating in a socially responsible manner, supporting a number of local communities and social/charitable causes, as well as running our operation in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Great place to work

We are committed to ensuring that we provide a motivational, fulfilling and fun environment in which to work. We focus hard on recruiting and retaining the best people, recognising their achievements and rewarding their efforts.

Our aim is to create an environment that encourages and values diversity. We aim to draw upon the widest possible range of views and experiences in order to meet the changing needs of our colleagues, clients and partners.

We seek to promote diversity and to respond to the needs of all individuals in a fair and equitable manner, whilst observing our commitment and responsibility to current legislation.

Procurement

We are committed to procuring our works, goods and services in an ethically and environmentally sensitive way, yet with proper regard to commercial obligations, ensuring that suppliers deliver to agreed timescales, quality and cost.

Charities

Supporting charity is a big part of life at Ellis Whittam. Each year our colleague forum (BREWS) nominates a charity to support for the year – raising money with many different events and activities. We are currently actively supporting Glasgow Children’s Hospital, Alder Hey Children’s Charity and Cancer Research UK.
