The Lincoln Social Responsibility Charter has been launched by City of Lincoln Council to showcase star employers in Lincoln who go above and beyond to support their employees and the local community.
Through undertaking a range of socially responsible activities, employers can expect to reap rewards for their organisation such as increased staff retention, reduced recruitment costs, a more productive workforce, better brand recognition, improved business reputation, increase in profits, customer loyalty and recognition as an ethical employer.
In turn, employees can expect to receive a range of benefits from their employer which can make a real difference, including fair pay, career breaks, holiday purchase schemes, additional training and development, walk/cycle to work initiatives, staff recognition schemes and health support.
There are also a wide range of socially responsible activities that can be undertaken by an organisation to benefit the local community, such as offering apprenticeship placements, community group training, fundraising, green space sponsorship, donations, employee volunteering, proactive support of community events and more.
Lincoln Minster School have been accepted into the Charter based on the employee benefits we boast, charitable work we undertake and community projects we support.
Councillor Ric Metcalfe, Leader of City of Lincoln Council, said:
“We are delighted to introduce the Social Responsibility Charter to award our role model employers who go the extra mile to reduce inequality and enhance Lincoln as a place to work."
