Our Corporate Social Responsibility
One of the fundamental concepts of the EFQM Excellence Model is that organisations take responsibility for a sustainable future.
TQMI is committed to the highest ethical standards and has a well developed social conscience as demonstrated in two of our values:
We actively balance the needs of all our stakeholders; customers; employees; shareholders and society as a whole.
Our integrity, as individuals and as an organisation, will never be compromised.
We have evidence that TQMI has been selected over other consultancies by some of our public sector clients because they consider us to be a highly ethical organisation.
We understand the importance of looking after the environment and act individually and as a team to make a difference.
We aim to use public transport wherever possible to reduce CO2 emissions.
We not only recycle our paper but use scrap paper for any consultancy workshop exercise. In 2008 we changed from hand written and posted Christmas cards to electronic cards, which not only reduces our environmental impact but enables us to donate the money saved to a local charity.
TQMI believe in giving back to the community and helping those in need. Since 2008 we have supported the local branch of Fairbridge. Fairbridge is a national charity supporting young people aged 13-25 to develop the confidence, motivation and skills they need to turn their lives around. We chose Fairbridge as we share their aims and values. We believe our donations and volunteer sessions with the Fairbridge young people can help improve their lives and enable them to contribute to the wider society.
Examples of our support include:
- In October 2009, one of our consultants, Siobhan Doran, completed a skydive to raise money and awareness for Fairbridge in Merseyside, jumping out of a plane at 15,000 feet raising over £700 for the charity.
- In 2010, we employed one of the Fairbridge young people to provide them with experience in an office environment and working as a part of a team.
We plan to continue our support in 2010 for Fairbridge in Merseyside. To find out how you can help Fairbirdge visit their website http://www.fairbridge.org.uk/merseyside/
In the summer of 2008, one of our consultants led a group of Rangers from the Guide Association on a community development project in India and Sri Lanka. Our staff helped her raise the monies needed to fund the trip.
