Another week, another award for the Kimpton team. This one is the Social Value Award. It’s awarded to businesses in the North West who go over and above to deliver social value in the areas they live and work. As you can imagine, this is another that is close to our hearts. It’s an official recognition of the work we have been doing for many years as a team.
But what is social value?
It’s a standard that has been introduced to measure how much good a business does in their community and on the flip side, measures how they are reducing their impact on the environment. It’s measured with four key metrics
Social – creating healthier, more sustainable and more resilient places and communities.
Economic – Jobs and Employment – creating fair employment and good work for all, looking to recruit locally and retaining staff on fair contracts they can rely on.
Environment: Protecting and improving our environment through better business practice, reducing waste and minimising environmental impact in everything we do
