Social Responsiblity

On 12 June, The Midcounties were proud to be awarded the highest ranked award at the National CSR awards in London.  The Society won the ‘Overall Excellence’ award for social responsibility in recognition of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.  

This award recognises our CSR activity which includes colleague volunteering, increasing recycling levels and improving colleague engagement. The award is significant achievement and demonstrates the strength of our values and principles.

The award builds on the Society’s recent success of achieving 5 Stars in Business in the Community’s Corporate Responsibility Index (the highest level possible).  Our 5 star rating recognises the Society as one of the best businesses in the UK for our CSR programme by the UK’s leading experts.

This is a significant achievement with only 5 businesses (including the Midcounties) achieving the 5 star rating. The award recognises the strength of the Society’s values and principles. The CR Index is scored based on CSR activity within the business which included colleague volunteering, increasing recycling levels and improving colleague engagement.
