Why is Corporate Social Responsibility important?

Wednesday 1 February 2017

Did you know that your company can make more profit by being more socially responsible? Studies have shown that companies that invest in the good of their environment, employees and the local community have greater long-term profits and customer loyalty1.

Corporate Social Responsibility covers these major areas2:

  1. Being environmentally friendly
  2. Charitable giving
  3. Employee satisfaction
  4. Volunteering work

We believe that using Orange Rooms facilities can enable your company to practice CSR as we incorporate these values into our organisations ethos.

We are an environmentally conscious organisations and we have invested over £1.5 million into the environmental sustainability of our building by installing solar panels and the recycled rainwater system for flushing toilets. In fact we received Leicester’s first Environment City Building Award the Orange Rooms were created.

The proceeds of our venue hire go beyond Orange Rooms to many other projects in the local community. We share our building with Voluntary Action LeicesterShire (VAL), which contributes to invaluable and extensive work in the local community. VAL, as the name might suggest, is home to myriad opportunities to give back. Should your employees wish to give back in their spare time, our venue offers this service as well!

We strive to keep our customers updated on the various ways their custom enables VAL to fulfil its aim of ‘helping people change their lives for the better’ and we are committed to making our customers aware of the positive impact VAL can make with the support of local businesses.

Our aim is to provide an excellent service to your company or team visiting our venue and we can promise your staff a fully-manned reception, on-hand IT support, fully accessible rooms, complimentary Wi-Fi and laptop use, integrated PA system, LCD projectors and screens, catering and refreshment facilities, nearby transport links and car parking. You can be sure that your employee satisfaction will be high after a team meeting at our venue.

We hope you will consider our venue in the future to assist you in your company’s Corporate Social Responsibility targets.
