All employees are able to take 2 days paid leave per year to take part in corporate volunteering days.
Organised through our CSR department, these sessions help address community issues through the utilisation of our employees skills.
Below is a selection of sessions that our employees have been involved in.
28/11/12: Dove stone reservoir
RSBP have agreed a partnership programme to manage and improve the local habitat at Dove Stone in an attempt to encourage a more diverse wildlife and bird population.
Part of their work involves clearing sections of evergreen coniferous woodland which offers a limited habitat for a small number of bird species; and replanting these areas with a variety of indigenous deciduous trees.
The first part of the day was spent planting young trees in an area that had previously been destroyed by a grass fire but was now recovering well. Then it was off to the woods and after a quick demonstration on tree felling the team set about clearing an area of small conifers. Hard work but an enjoyable day out in beautiful surroundings.
