Corporate Social Responsibility

In the increasingly conscience-focused marketplaces of the 21st century where the demand for more ethical business processes and practices is increasing, Fortuna Healthcare has developed its own Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy to address the fact that the voluntary actions that it takes as a company – over and above compliance with minimum legal requirements – impacts both its own competitive interests as well as those of society as a whole. Our company recognises that it does not exist in isolation nor is it simply a way of making money; our employees depend on our business as do customers, suppliers and the local community all of whom are affected in some way by what it does.

The company’s CSR strategy revolves around understanding its business impact on the wider world and considering how it can use this impact in a positive way; it means taking a responsible attitude, going beyond the minimum legal requirements and following straightforward principles.

In more specific terms, Fortuna Healthcare is currently involved in a number of initiatives consistent with the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility:

    • Charity Fundraising: Our company is actively engaged in supporting charitable activities.
    • Funds were donated by the directors of Fortuna as part of their commitment to support charitable activities and other ad hoc worthy causes..
    • Our company allows for staff attendance at various fundraising events at which funds were raised by the business and staff alike.
    • The charities that have been supported this year have included the following organisations:

    • The British Heart Foundation.
    • Down's Syndrome Association.
    • MacMillan Cancer Support.

    • Positive About Disabled People:

      Fortuna Healthcare prides itself on taking a positive approach to employing disabled members of our community and has made a firm commitment to the five main principles around which the accreditation is awarded:

    • Interview all job applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities.
    • Ensure that there is a mechanism in place to discuss at any time – but at least once per year – with disabled employees what can be done to ensure that they develop and use their abilties.
    • Make every effort when employees become disabled to ensure that they stay in employment.
    • Take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work.
    • Review the five commitments each year and what can be achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans.

    • The Company continues to champion the principles of the ‘Positive About Disabled People’ scheme..

    • The CSR Committee would like to thank everyone for their continued support and generosity for all the fundraising activities. Please note that the role of the CSR Committee is to review all relevant areas of the company’s approach to corporate social responsibility and in this context would welcome any members of staff that would like to become involved..
