It is important for a company to be accountable at all times, and even more so during times of uncertainty.
MANCHESTER, England (PRWEB) May 20, 2020
The Office Providers has announced that it has joined companies such as Capita, Deloitte and London City Airport in signing up to the Good Business Charter (GBC), an accreditation that seeks to raise the bar on business practices for employees, tax, the environment, customers and suppliers.
The Good Business Charter exists for all companies and charities across all industries and sectors. The charter offers an accreditation that recognises organisations that prioritise and care for their employees, the environment, customers and suppliers. The GBC and its members seek to inspire many other businesses to follow suit.
The Good Business Charter has the support of both the CBI and the TUC which both have trustee representation on its board. Other partners of the GBC include the Living Wage Foundation. The GBC has been set up by a charity called the Good Business Foundation.
Chairman of the GBC board, Simon Fox, said:
“The Good Business Charter brings together 10 standards, most of which already exist, but in separate places. We have brought them together to give a coherent overall position for businesses to aspire to. We believe that the GBC has enormous potential to change business practice for good. We hope that because of its simplicity and cost effectiveness, it will quickly gain support.”
Managing Director of The Office Providers, Mike Gardener, said:
“We are proud to be accredited by the Good Business Charter. We agree that the time is right for a body to encourage responsible capitalism in terms of fair pay, employee representation, environmental responsibility and general ethical behaviour. It is important for a company to be accountable at all times, and even more so during times of uncertainty like these.”
