Our Social and Environmental Activities
As our services include Business Continuity Planning we can share over 20 years experience operating across the public, private and social enterprise sectors. We introduce clients to our larger supply chains of professional bodies with whom we work closely. These include the Chartered Institutes of Personnel and Development, Management, Consulting, British Computer Society, Fraud Advisory Panel, Royal Society of Arts Manufactures and Commerce, regional business associations and chambers of commerce. Our projects are often government funded and are tailored by an onsite review without charging to first establish if and how we can create value for clients.
