The company = The International Teaching Partnership
Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) company policy outlines our efforts to be socially responsible, supporting the (local) communities in which we operate, and providing employees with opportunities for charitable work.
Our company’s social responsibility falls under two categories: compliance and proactiveness. Compliance refers to our company’s commitment to legality and willingness to observe community values. Proactiveness is every initiative to promote human rights, help communities and protect our natural environment.
Our company will:
- Respect the law
- Honour its internal policies
- Ensure that all its business operations are legitimate
- Keep every partnership and collaboration open and transparent
- Business ethics
We’ll always conduct business with integrity and respect to human rights. We’ll promote:
- Safety and fair dealing
- Anti-bribery and anti-corruption practices
Protecting the environment
Our company recognises the need to protect the natural environment. Keeping our environment clean and unpolluted is a benefit to all. We’ll always follow best practices when disposing garbage and using chemical substances. Stewardship will also play an important role.
We’ll ensure that we:
- Don’t risk the health and safety of our employees and community.
- Support diversity and inclusion.
- Human rights
Our company is dedicated to protecting human rights. We are a committed equal opportunity employer and will abide by all fair labour practices. We’ll ensure that our activities do not directly or indirectly violate human rights in any country (e.g. forced labour).
Donations and aid
Our company may preserve a budget to make monetary donations. These donations will aim to:
Advance the arts, education and community events and alleviate those in need.
Our company will encourage its employees to volunteer. They can volunteer through programs organised internally or externally. Our company may sponsor volunteering events from other organisations.
Preserving the environment
Apart from legal obligations, our company will proactively protect the environment. Examples of relevant activities include:
- Conserving energy
- Organising reforestation excursions
- Using environmentally-friendly technologies
- Supporting the community
Our company may initiate and support community investment and educational programs. For example, it may begin partnerships with vendors for constructing public buildings. It can provide support to non-profit organisations or movements to promote cultural and economic development of global and local communities.
We will actively invest in R&D. We will be open to suggestions and listen carefully to ideas. Our company will try to continuously improve the way it operates.
The Company maintains a commitment to monitor best practice and operate continuous improvement in our CSR policy.
All our team have the opportunity to involve themselves in their charitable passions.
Team members are regularly released from work in order to support their chosen charitable activities including bereavement counselling and school governor meetings.
Our CSR is ingrained throughout our organisation.
