Just like any organisation, it is hugely important for Worksmart to be socially responsible – meaning that we must operate in a positive and ethical way. This can be achieved in many ways, from making sure all our employees have the consumer in mind and completing interior fit-outs to the highest standard to donating money to charity every year.
Every year, the Worksmart team participate in many events that help to raise money for charity. Some of these include Roon the Toon – a 10k run around Kilmarnock – and the Kiltwalk – a 13 mile walk from Clydebank, Glasgow to Baloch, Loch Lomond. These events not only help to raise money for some very worthy causes, they also help to raise Worksmart’s profile in the local area. These types of events can also be sponsored by companies, which will help to raise even more money for charity and help get the business noticed. We have also recently sponsored The Kevin Thompson Academy – a football academy run by former Hibernian midfielder Kevin Thompson. Our sponsorship was to buy them new football nets, which our Edinburgh regional manager and Hibs super-fan Gary McGurk was delighted to present to the Academy.
Keeping with sports, Worksmart are also proud sponsors of several youth teams, such as Hurlford 2003s and Kilmarnock Rugby and Football Club’s U18 teams. On top of this, we currently sponsor the very talented young swimmer Sophie Craig, who is completing swimming challenges. This money will help to go towards her trip to do community work in Cambodia.
Another way Worksmart have been socially responsible is through the high standards we maintain on our interior fit-outs and refurbishments. Our current mission statement is “Our Mission is to surpass our best competitors, have values and always develop”, which shows that our number one priority is the customer. Worksmart prides itself on our customer relations and has very high levels of customer satisfaction and client retention. This is very important as it ensures we will be able to gain a good reputation in the interior sector.
As well as treating customers well, it is important that we treat our own staff well. After all, without them, Worksmart wouldn’t be able to operate. We have always had a passion for team working, and we work closely with young people in order to recruit apprentices. We also employ both school leavers and university graduates. This ensures that Worksmart have a workforce that can perform to their high standards both now and in the future, and continue to be the best in the interior fit-out and refurbishment sector.
In conclusion, there is now more need than ever for an organisation to be socially responsible. It is very important that all companies help charities, as well as treating customers and employees well to make sure the business operates effectively. If these are not implemented properly, Worksmart would not be the dynamic and thriving company who are consistently growing the way we are today. We encourage you to take part in the events we have mentioned, as the money raised goes to excellent causes.
