At Ambition we acknowledge our responsibilities to our employees, the community and the environment. Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy focuses on three core commitments:
- We believe that for our employees the company should be a positive, inclusive and safe place to work.
- We want to be engaged with our community, using our time and resources to improve other peoples’ lives in line with our company purpose of Building Better Futures.
- We recognise that we can significantly reduce the impact our business activities have on the environment.
Each of our offices around the world supports their communities through raising money as well as donating time, resources and expertise. We also host career focused programs aimed at assisting young people in each of our offices around the world.
In addition, as a birthday gift to each staff member, Ambition Group makes a donation to a charity of the employee’s choice.
In addition to Ambition’s corporate social responsibility policy, as a group we are affiliated with Unicef and participate in raising funds for their Champion for Children Programme. Unicef are the United Nations Children’s Fund, they work in 190 countries across the globe, and advocate the survival, protection and development of every child. Their focus is on the lives of children who are the most disadvantaged and excluded.
We are proud to have this partnership with Unicef as it strongly backs Ambitions tagline of “Building Better Futures”. Ambition employees are encouraged to donate year round, however predominantly during the quarterly global culture initiatives, also known as ‘Celebrating Our Culture With Pride’ events.
