Greenview employees have donated generously for local charities and foodbanks, recognising the impact that working together to make a difference can have on local communities, particularly when household budgets are stretched over the winter months to cover costs of heating, food and Christmas presents.
We are delighted to have made donations to Lisburn foodbank, Dundonald foodbank, Cash for Kids ‘Mission Christmas’ presents and Newry Women’s Aid.
This also accompanies our Christmas Raffle which raised an amazing £408.46 for Brain Injury Matters, our Charity of the Year for 2022.
Thank you to everyone that donated generously.
Greenview have joined the Menopause Workplace Pledge, a campaign led by the Wellbeing of Women, a women’s health charity saving and changing the lives of women, girls and babies.
The key objective of the initiative is to encourage women going through the menopause to know that they can – and should – be fully supported in the workplace, and to call on employers to do their bit by signing the pledge and sticking to it.
Women make up nearly half of the UK workforce, but around 900,000 have quit their jobs because of the menopause. People often struggle with their menopause symptoms in the workplace.
We have committed to making our organisation a supportive and understanding place for employees going through the menopause. If people affected by menopause feel supported at work, it can help to increase staff retention, reduce recruitment costs, improve productivity, happiness and wellbeing, and ensure a more diverse workforce.
In signing the Menopause Workplace Pledge, we have committed to:
- Recognising that the menopause can be an issue in the workplace and women need support
- Talking openly, positively and respectfully about the menopause
- Actively supporting and informing your employees affected by the menopause.
As a socially responsible business, Corporate Social Responsibility is at the core of our business ethos. Each year we are proactive in supporting local charities. We pride ourselves on ‘giving back’ and this has included coffee mornings, pub quizzes, donations to local food bank donations and toys for Cash for Kids at Christmas.
Our annual charity is nominated by our employees, enabling us to support a cause close to their hearts. The nominated charities were shortlisted by an independent panel and our selected Charity of the Year 2022 was Brain Injury Matters. Thank you to all those who nominated, voted and got involved.
Brain Injury Matters supports, promotes and empowers all those affected by Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). They deliver a range of innovative programmes and initiatives led by a diverse team of clinicians, to help those affected by ABI become more independent, achieve their goals and help them adjust to life with brain injury.
Throughout 2022, we will be working to support Brain Injury Matters (NI) through fundraising and employee initiatives.
At our recent employee event, we held a Christmas Hamper raffle and raised £408.46 for Brain Injury Matters.
