PCA People and our Community – Our Social Responsibility
PCA People was founded on the development of long term and sustainable relationships. This precept is all encompassing; ie extends to our clients, our candidates, our staff, the environment and our community. Consumers are placing more and more value on working with companies that implement a high standard of ethical practices, and makes business decisions not only around financial implications but also the environmental and social impact of those business decisions on the community.
"Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as the local community and society at large” (World Business Council for Sustainable Development).
PCA People mesh social responsibility into the manner in which we operate and look beyond the short term. Being an SME we are proud to have developed a comprehensive program that is still evolving. We have identified several areas of ongoing social responsibility and are proud to work with our staff, the environment and our community on the following programs:
Staff Wellness Program:
PCA People offer our staff the opportunity to engage in our Wellness Program. This is a monthly focus on topics including behaviour change/intervention programs, consultations on diet and nutrition, life coaching, fitness and exercise, naturopathy, and financially well consultations, natural therapies, ergonomics, health lounges, seminars/workshops on a variety of issues including women’s/ men’s health, the organic debate, and flu vaccinations. Our staff participates in the development of each annual program therefore taking ownership and achieving a sense of belonging. Some of the other areas of our Wellness Program include sanity and birthday leave, and flexible work practices around fitness and exercising routines.
