At nmcn we are committed to delivering a positive impact on everything we touch. As a business we’re passionate about helping the communities in which we work and live in order to create a lasting legacy. On Monday we launched the next priority of our Positive Impact Plan 2025 – Our Communities.
We launched this priority to coincide with National Volunteer’s Week. Volunteers’ Week is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make.
During the week, hundreds of events and celebrations take place across the country, saying thank you to volunteers and recognising their invaluable and diverse contribution to the UK.
Here are some of our highlights from our Positive Impact Week:
Our team cleared some overgrown areas in order to reveal some more of the wonderful walled gardens
We cleared some of the invasive Rhododendron in the woods, planted some new tress and cleared scrub to improve the woodland to help native wildflowers to flourish and make it more accessible to everyone.
Our team spent their volunteering hours repairing and installing new fencing to improve the environment.
Our team went back to the school to announce the winners of the health and safety poster competition. The posters are now featured on hoarding at the entrance to one of our sites in Mansfield.
To make room for the new mini bus and keep it safe, our team have made some adjustments to the car park.
We’re proud to be a company that can support its people to embark on volunteer work within the community or for charitable organisations.
As a business, we recognise that volunteering provides a channel through which employees can access opportunities to engage in activities which enhance the communities where we live and work. In addition, volunteering can provide experiential learning opportunities which support our wider learning and development commitment, aligned with our purpose and Positive Impact Plan.
Volunteering plays a central role in this priority plan, we have formalised our volunteering policy, allowing everyone across the business, at any level, the opportunity to take at least three days off each year to volunteer – or up to five days in special circumstances or for community projects abroad.
It’s great to see a passion for volunteering amongst our people and we hope that this will help us to build a lasting legacy for having a positive impact on everything we touch.
