PDMS has signed up to the Scottish Business Pledge, a voluntary scheme which promotes principles of fairness, equality, opportunity and innovation.
The Scottish Business Pledge upholds the best in effective and ethical business practices and recognises efforts made to build organisations which contribute to Scotland’s future. Organisations which make the pledge must pay the Living Wage, meet two further criteria and have a longer term commitment to the seven other components. These criteria include:
- Paying the Living Wage
- Not using zero hours contacts
- Supporting progressive workforce engagement
- Investing in youth
- Making progress on diversity and gender balance
- Committing to an innovation programme
- Pursing internal business opportunities
- Playing an active role in the community
- Committing to prompt payment
We’re proud to say we were able to meet all of the above criteria.
Scotland based Business Development Manager, Richard Graham said, “Ever since we opened an office in Scotland, we have been fully committed to creating a working environment where our clients, staff and suppliers can flourish. Signing up to the Scottish Business Pledge was an easy choice and is something we are committed to for the long term.”
Other organisations which have made the pledge include Barclays, The University of Edinburgh, Microsoft and GSK, among numerous others. Click here to find out more about our work in the community.
