We’re proud to announce that ADT Workplace has recently been accepted onto the Good Business Charter, an accreditation which seeks to raise the bar on business practises for employees, tax, the environment, customers and suppliers. Following on from our announcement last month that we are now a Living Wage Employer, this accreditation further reinforces our commitment to being a responsible business.
The GBC was developed and is overseen by the Good Business Foundation, an independent charity established in 2019. The accreditation recognises responsible business behaviour across ten key components: real living wage, fairer hours and contracts, employee wellbeing, employee representation, equality, diversity and inclusion, environmental responsibility, paying fair tax-commitment to customers, ethical sourcing and prompt payment. ADT Workplace have achieved all 10 commitments.
ADT Workplace Director, Craig Sanderson, said: “It’s important to be held accountable for the way we do business, and it has never been more crucial for businesses to build trust and show that they care about more than just profit. Signing up to the Good Business Charter is just one step in our ongoing strategy to demonstrate our commitment to our team, suppliers, customers and the environment. It also offers us a great opportunity to work with other likeminded organisations to help promote responsible business behaviour.”
Chairman of the GBC Board, Simon Fox, said: “The Good Business Charter brings together 10 standards, most of which already exist, but in separate places. We have brought them together to give a coherent overall position for businesses to aspire to. We believe that the GBC has enormous potential to change business practice for good.”
