Charity

Giving back is part of our DNA and one of our main values is to 'make a difference' and the BAS team realise and appreciate the need to look after our neighbouring communities and where possible give back to both local and national charities. We try to embrace and look after charities that are close to our own hearts and this is why we have chosen to support different causes each year rather than just focus on one.

2020 saw us dressing up as elves to raise money for Alzheimer’s, and a local charity called Genesis Care, which provides well-being and respite care service for older people. Following on from that in 2021 we raised over £1000 for  Springhill Hospice in Rochdale, which is a purpose-built facility offering specialist palliative care to patients and families from diagnosis to end-of-life. We trekked up Mount Snowdon, in addition to spending an afternoon gardening and helping to improve one of the visitors' gardens for people to enjoy.

Hoping that COVID restrictions will ease this year, we will look to increase our charitable activities, already setting our sights on the 3 peak challenge and spending a day in an animal sanctuary.

We are also very excited to introduce a Refer a Friend Scheme* where we will give a charitable donation of £100 to a charity of your choice or from our chosen partners below.

Corporate Social Responsibility

CSR is not just for large Corporates; adopting and embracing CSR alongside diversity and inclusion leads to more responsible practices. It supports innovative efforts to promote human rights, addresses environmental challenges, and improves communities, and this is an ethos that all companies can build into their business strategy. If every company adopted CSR strategies and started off with fulfilling one goal at a time, imagine the change we would see? Companies can unite and work together, driving the possibilities for societal and environmental change. Where practices such as sustainability and community economic empowerment can also lead to tangible business benefits through social responsibility.

The BAS team take our responsibilities very seriously and ensures best practices are adhered to in every aspect of our business, to allow us to incorporate these values into our daily lives and not just tick a box. We are heavily involved in helping our communities, both at home and across the workplace; supporting the wellbeing of people we come into contact with, and ensuring, where possible, we support local businesses and give back to the local communities.

Community and Social Development

We support schools in the local area, one Director is a Careers Enterprise Advisor to two schools in Greater Manchester, and as a team, we all support the various career curriculum activities where we can, ensuring the next generation leave education more work-ready than ever before.

We are all engaged in various local community groups, in our own time, from Village Green initiatives to European Twin Town exchanges.  Pre-pandemic times we were involved in litter picking events and fostering rescue animals. We currently still take an active role in looking after our greenbelt areas within the North West and have managed socially distanced activities where possible.

Carbon footprint and Environmentally friendly operations

The BAS team recognise and understand the importance of protecting the environment in which we operate. We are fully committed to minimising the impact that running our business has on the environment, and we encourage our clients, suppliers, and other stakeholders to do the same. We have already pledged that we will minimise unnecessary air pollution by using local meeting areas and not travelling in core/rush hours. We will also take full advantage of the use of technology to minimise the use of wasting paper on unnecessary printing and utilise secure cloud storage to alleviate this, where possible.
