Social Responsibility2018-10-29T10:09:14+00:00

We believe it’s extremely important to operate a socially-responsible and transparent business that gives back wherever possible. We’re fully committed to operating our business in a sustainable manner, by carefully monitoring our impact on the environment and implementing procedures to reduce the unnecessary use of natural resources.

This includes operating a paperless office, recycling, and ensuring that all staff turn their computers off at the end of each day. We are also an equal opportunities employer and ensure that no one receives less favorable treatment on the grounds of gender, race, sexual orientation, age or disability. Diversity is crucial to our business and we make sure that we take every opportunity to promote and maximize it.

Charity Work

Finally, it’s important to us that we give back to our community. Each year, in every country we operate, we nominate a new local charity, with money raised throughout the year going to these organizations. Over recent years we have taken part in several charitable fundraising events to support these causes, including running marathons in support of a children’s charity, and spending a night sleeping on the streets of Leeds in support of homeless charity Simon on the Streets.

This year, six of our most athletic Glingos completed the Three Peaks Challenge in aid of Duchenne.

Here are some of the ways we’ve helped local charities:

  • The Three Peaks Challenge in aid of Duchenne UK
  • Building a new school playground in conjunction with the Bryan Adams Foundation
  • Movember
  • Book and Bake Sale
  • One of our Sales Directors ran a marathon to help beat cancer with the Candlelighters Trust at Leeds General Infirmary
  • A few of the team slept on the streets of Leeds for a night in aid of Simon on the Streets, a Leeds-based charity which supports the homeless of West Yorkshire.
