CSR is a key focus for JP Corry, and although a long-standing culture within the business meant we had strong activity in many of the elements related to CORE, taking part in the application process has provoked a more structured approach for us.

This has resulted in the formation of a formal CSR committee and we have already been able to improve staff engagement and plan out our CSR activity across a two-year programme. The learnings from the CORE process have enabled us to refine our community investment programme, which now spans a number of areas including, a paid volunteering initiative offered to all staff as well as supporting social enterprises including the Now Group and Women’s TEC to promote diversity in the construction sector. We believe CORE will generate tangible benefits for both business and society.
