In 2020, Howard Civil Engineering donated a whopping £41,000 to a range of national and local charities, schools, sports clubs, and enterprises.
As fantastic as that sum is, we've decided to set our sights on a much heftier goal for 2021. This year, we're aiming to contribute £50,000 and volunteer a total of 50 working days to benefit our local community!
So far in 2021, we have contributed over £17,000 and volunteered 33 working days. This includes fundraising for Mind in Bradford by tackling the Tough Mudder 5K and donating over £5,000 of furniture to a local independent school!
While we have already made great strides towards encouraging discussions around mental health and providing support for those with poor mental health in the workplace, Howard Civil Engineering are committed to expanding the level of awareness and help available.
This will include increasing the number of employees trained in Mental Health First Aid and ensuring that every member of the Howard Civil Engineering team is trained in Mental Health Awareness as standard by 2025!
Did you know that 7% of our workforce are apprentices? By 2025, we are hoping to significantly increase this figure to 12%! Not only that, but we are also partnering with new colleges and training providers to increase our talent pool and offer four work experience placements per year.
‘Howard Civil Engineering are making great efforts to build upon our existing sustainability strategy and ensure our impact in our local communities is as positive as possible,’ explains managing director Michael Howard. ‘As part of this, we are also emphasising the importance of employee wellbeing and professional development. I am very excited to see where these new sustainability practices take us as a company.’
