BE Offices have worked with many charities for a number of years and are proud to have donated over £1.5m.
Our chosen charity is Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity but we are delighted to work with a range of good causes. Supporting our local communities, developing our people and helping good causes move forward is and always has been one of our core beliefs. Some the of good work we do every year is listed below.
TAKING OUR PART IN THE COMMUNITY
We have taken part in the Great City Race for many years, it is one of the various events we do to raise money for charity. There’s too many to list but another team favourite is the The Paddington Dragonboat Race, raising funds for COSMIC (Children of St. Mary’s Intensive Care).
CHARITY DAYS FOR EVERY EMPLOYEE
In 2011 we launched “Charity Days” for our team members. Each employee is given three days paid leave to work for a charity of their choice. From volunteering at a food bank to lending careers advice to students, we are donating hundreds hours of time this year.
THE GREEN GROUP
Being Green isn’t just something we add to our agenda, it’s part of the fabric of working for BE and in our centres. We are the majority of the way through a multi-million-pound project to install energy efficient lighting throughout our entire portfolio and have just switched the electricity supplier to 15 of our centres, to one who uses only renewable sourced energy.
We’re unique in the fact that we have our own in-house project team, The Green Group, who are challenged with making every one of our processes greener, more energy efficient and better for the environment. They have driven initiatives such as the binless office, cycle to work scheme, carbon neutral hosting servers, and bike rack installations at centres. Follow us @teamgreennow
CHARITY VOLUNTEER TRIP
Ever year we send two very lucky members of our team on a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience to help in less fortunate areas of the world. Our volunteers have helped on projects in Cambodia, Nepal, Thailand, Belize and most recently turtle conservation in Costa Rica. Keep an eye out on our blog for the daily updates when the trips are running.
We sponsor many local events and sports team and firmly believe in making a difference to our communities wherever we can.
