At Cpl, Corporate Responsibility is integral to what we do. Every year we are proud to look back at those who we have helped throughout the year.
We understand that the issues these charities assist touch everyone in some way. ‘That kind of support speaks a million words and means a lot to my son’, says Libby Kelly whose son Max suffers from MPS – an incurable degenerative disease. Every year Cpl turns blue to raise money and awareness for MPS.
Raising awareness and volunteering is important to foster a sense of community, but it is also changing lives for the better. Through our Volunteering Time Off programme we actively encourage all our staff to take time out of their day to help whatever charity they choose. The Cpl Shared Services team raised over €10,000 for The Dublin Simon Community through a charity skydive, a ‘Room to Improve’ project and a charity auction.
We are spearheading diversity and inclusion through our partnership with the 30% club, WXN and Inclusion at TCD. We are a partner of Junior Achievement Ireland and we have hosted mock interviews and career advice workshops for JobCare and EPIC.
This year in particular was a special one for Cpl as we launched our LGBT Network ‘BeProud@Cpl’. This was a major step for our own diversity and inclusion policy. As Ireland’s first recruitment agency to establish such a network this is a positive sea change for corporate inclusion in Ireland. Through leveraging partnerships with other LGBT networks and getting involved in the wider LGBT community we are helping to empower people to bring their whole self to work – which ultimately promotes a positive, innovative, and engaged workplace culture.
