“Giving Back” feels good and does good. We encourage our clients to work with charities and give their teams paid time off to volunteer as there are huge benefits in doing so, such as increased employee loyalty and employee engagement, which ultimately leads to better business results!
At Meraki HR, we practice what we preach, and we believe in giving back to our community. We have worked with a number of local charities and have made significant donations to those charities, held fundraising events for our chosen charities and have worked with charities who we felt needed our HR and Coaching support on a pro-bono basis.
Our most recent charity event was a virtual walk/run/cycle from Lands End to John O’Groats which is 874 miles to raise money for Sobell House Hospice in Oxfordshire, who desperately need funds at this time. We not only managed to complete 980 miles in the end, and managed to raise over £3500 for them! It’s not too late to donate via the link here; https://bit.ly/MerakiHRGivingBack
Other charities we have worked with have included; Ahoy, Cancer Research, The Safety Centre Milton Keynes and the African Childrens’ Fund
