At Tugela People, we are aware of our responsibility towards the world around us and the people in it and take a proactive approach to our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Our corporate culture supports this thinking; central tenets include integrity, teamwork, performance and learning.
Sustainability is a key aspect we focus on. Looking at CSR from a global perspective, we strive to adopt sustainability and actively endorse a paperless office environment. We encourage responsible travel and look at ways to reduce our travel carbon footprint.
Education is another focal point – we are passionate about knowledge sharing and learning at a local level in all our interactions with our clients and the communities we operate in.
Tugela People select a charity to support every year, chosen through an employee nomination and voting process. In 2023, we supported the Brain Tumour Research, but this year we are pleased to be supporting:
Kidney Care UK provide practical, emotional and financial support to kidney patients and their families, as well as campaigning at a national and government level to improve kidney health and care services.
Recognition is an integral part of the company ethos, and employees can recognise each other for living the company values by awarding wow points. Every month the employees that have received these, go into a randomiser draw, and the winner receives a voucher. The recipient can donate this to our chosen charity, and the company then matches the donation.
As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility program, Tugela People encourage their employees to ‘give back’ to the community by allocating three days of paid leave a year to get involved with a charitable cause/s. Several of our employees are already involved with charities and give their time to a wide range of causes.
