Community engagement and project support to deliver real social value.
Our Thinking Community initiative is about inspiring as many lives as possible within the communities we live and work. Through collaboration with our people, clients, and supply chain, we aim to make a difference for the social, economic, and environmental benefit of all.
As an employee-led initiative, our team supports causes and projects meaningful to them by drawing on the resources and expertise within our business and our wider network.
Worth of social value
Every person we communicate with, work with or support is a ‘life inspired’. Whether we’re marking a car park for a hospice or supporting charities or schools, we insist on open communication and ongoing feedback. By maintaining a long-lasting relationship with various businesses, individuals and causes, we develop a real understanding of our impact and the outcomes of our actions.
An integral part of our Thinking Community is employee volunteering. This initiative supports our communities and fosters a greater sense of wellbeing for our teams.
Every person at WJ Group is offered one day, fully paid to volunteer. Since its inception, over one-fifth of our employees have actively taken part, with many reporting the great sense of achievement and development in their personal skills.
