What is ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’?
Corporate social responsibility is often abbreviated to ‘CSR’.
It is a business initiative we are happy to be part of, to assess and take responsibility for our company’s effects on the environment and social wellbeing. The term generally applies to efforts that go beyond what may be required by regulators or environmental protection groups.
It is the strategic way of doing business that is based off of the understanding ‘triple bottom line principle’: people, planet and profit. CSR is the key component to sustaining long-term success in today’s business environment.
Our efforts include donating money and getting involved in charity fundraising to implementing employee-friendly policies in the workplace. CSR is important for businesses, charities and employees alike.
Recent events we’ve had the pleasure of being involved in include;

Our founder at TE Compliance, Alan Crossland, ran for this great cause in Everton blue with his wife joining him in Liverpool FC red. Not only did they make an incredible £200 but they had the pleasure of meeting Rafa Benitez that day, (he is a famous football manager).
