The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has meant that the majority of us have been forced to reflect on the way we interact with others. This means positive changes have been made in the world of business.
What did 2020 teach us?
With many businesses and individuals now working from home or adapting their working environment, we have found that we are automatically being kinder to one another, making sure our colleagues are as safe and well as possible, checking up on family and friends regularly and serving our wider communities.
We’re happy to have seen many new businesses flourish last year as a result of this awakened awareness of the importance of aiding the community and our planet.
What social value means to us
To us, social value is achieved through social change. In order to accomplish this, we believe it requires a collective responsibility. It firstly starts with each of us being aware of the needs of others. We sincerely believe that in order to be successful in any endeavour, we must use our knowledge and expertise in order to solve problems that affect society a whole, rather than just our own problems.
As well as this, coming together with other experts with the same goals in mind can help you achieve social change in a better way. Trying to do everything on your own is not always the best option. We all have different specialities and by collaborating with others who have specialist knowledge on areas we lack in, we can reach our intended goals together.
Social impact is a key focus at Tier 1 but it’s important to remember that you can achieve this without compromising on profit.
The concept of social value has always been at the heart of what we do at Tier 1. Our business is based on helping other businesses and making a difference to our planet. We are proud to have gained several accreditations which we obtained through hard work and trust from our clients.
Disposing of old IT equipment doesn’t have to harm the environment. We are a company with a strong ethical focus and a ‘zero landfill’ policy. Every piece of equipment that comes to us gets re-used and recycled but also helps towards changing the lives of individuals in society who otherwise would have minimal prospects.
We are very proud to work with Antz Junction, a fantastic charity who help ex-offenders post-prison release get back to work and start a better life for themselves and their families.
This is achieved through our partnership with Antz Junction who facilitate career opportunities and apprenticeships in addition to intensive personal and professional development support. Through this programme, 75% of all ex-offenders are successful.
What you can do to help
Learn more about how disposing of your end of life IT with Tier 1 can change lives and contact us if you have any questions or would like to find out more.
Our work is something we are extremely proud of, and we hope that we have inspired others to make a conscious decision to support those who need the most help, whilst not forgetting about the planet we live on.
We would be more than happy to work with other like-minded people, businesses or charities who believe in social value as much as we do.
What problems would YOU like to find a solution to in society or your local community? We’d love to hear from you. Your thoughts and suggestions will also help us to improve our company further, as we are always striving to increase our social value as a business in today’s world.
