We are committed to developing sustainable communities with complete resident engagement.
There are many ways in which we demonstrate Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Key, is helping people achieve objectives that make a real difference to their community. It means getting involved in a range of initiatives including sponsoring community events, offering time and resources to local programmes, supporting sports or social clubs, education and training or donating surplus building materials to local colleges. It's the action that really counts.
Whilst working in partnership with our local Epping College; we have developed a programme which provides apprenticeships, secondments, sponsorship, advice and guidance, referrals, breakfast seminars and most importantly the sharing of best practice.
The partnership exemplifies the company strapline "Community at the Core of Construction."
We have invested more than £120,000 in local communities through sponsorship over the past 12 months.
It is the goal of the Higgins CSR team to ensure that the company behaves ethically and contributes to economic development while improving quality of life for the communities in which we work.
