CHARITABLE ACTIVITYYou’ll be encouraged to get actively involved in our charitable work. There’s all sorts going on, from sponsored events to raise funds for the homeless, to charity Christmas albums. Since we began nominating an annual charity in 2009 we have raised well over a million pounds for our chosen causes.
Charities we have supported include:
- Dreams Come True
- The Bubble Foundation UK
- Tuberous Sclerosis Association
- Comic Relief
- Children in Need
- Wycombe Homeless Connection
- St Mungo’s
- Macmillan Cancer Support
- Cancer Research UK
ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVITYWe’re a business that believes in doing the right thing when it comes to actively protecting the environment. Our “green team”, managed by our CEO, is responsible for raising the green agenda across the company. We look at every aspect of what we do, from recycling tea bags in our compost ‘wormery’ to choosing the most efficient pool cars. Cisco recently named us their UK and Ireland ‘Responsibility Partner of the Year’ and we’ve even featured positively on a Channel 4 documentary covering the green credentials of UK businesses.
LOOKING AFTER OUR PEOPLEWe’re very proud of the people and culture at Softcat – and we’re firmly focused on making sure employees are happy with working life. Our open-plan offices reflect our culture, leaders are visible and available, and communication flows easily. Achievements are regularly recognised, both informally and formally including seasonal parties, quarterly team socialising budgets, and our staff recognition ceremonies. We’ve consistently placed highly in the Great Place to Work awards, and our Glassdoor approval rating is exceptionally good.
Our Love2Volunteer campaign focuses on promoting and encouraging our employees to demonstrate the difference we can all make together. We give everyone two free charitable days that they can choose to use at any of the many scheduled volunteering events we have throughout the year. Those events are focused on four key areas; Animals, Community, Environment and Homeless; where we will give something back to those that need our help and support.
