Corporate Social Responsibility Statement
5 Key Areas:
We support this charity as it is very close to our hearts and holds great accomplishments with the support they provide to families in hard times.
They focus on two main aims:
'To give immediate financial assistance to parents whose children have been admitted to hospital with a life threatening or life limiting condition.'
'To fund research into the rare brain cancer that took her from us too soon.' (Evie's Gift 2018)
Here at CSL Direct we take Safeguarding very seriously. Every person that we employee is subject to a Disclosing and Barring Service Check (DBS check). The Disclosure and Barring Service helps employers make safer recruitment decisions and prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups.
There are 3 tiers of DBS Checks available, Basic, Standard and Enhanced. CSL Employees are subject to the Basic check, which checks the Police National Computer for details of all current criminal convictions.
All of our Team are checked in order to give assurance to our partners that our employees are suitable to interact with their beneficiaries who may be from vulnerable groups.
In April 2016 the government introduced a higher minimum wage rate for all staff over 25 years of age inspired by the Living Wage campaign – even calling it the ‘national living wage’.
However, the government’s ‘national living wage’ is not calculated according to what employees and their families need to live.
Instead, it is based on a target to reach 60% of median earnings by 2020. Under current forecasts this means a rise to less than £9 per hour by 2020.
For under 25s, the minimum wage rates also take into account affordability for employers.
The real Living Wage rates are higher because they are independently calculated based on what people need to get by. That’s why all employers that can afford to do so are encouraged to ensure their employees earn a wage that meets the costs of living, not just the government minimum.
The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate that is voluntarily paid by over 4,700 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work. CSL Direct happy to pay our team at least the real Living Wage which is higher than the government minimum.
