Corporate Social Responsibility

Regardless of where in the world we operate, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) continues to play an increasingly important role in the business. Our CSR strategy reflects the way in which we operate our main business of ‘work’ – managing the employment needs of individuals and business – and providing opportunities which can make a real difference to the ongoing development and achievements of our people.

Orion Group is guided by the extensive International Labour Organisations (ILO) standards governing our employment practices and industrial relations. This standard incorporates a genuine respect for employees’ rights to freedom of association, labour organisation, non-discrimination in employment and a safe and healthy working environment provided for all employees.

At Orion we truly value all of our people in terms of their social, intellectual, economic and personal contribution to the business. We also ensure that each employee is treated with dignity and respect. We never discriminate on the basis gender, racial, social or ethnic origin, culture, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, nationality, citizenship or political opinion.

Our work in the community

Orion Group has remained an independently owned company and this gives us more flexibility (than many privately owned businesses) to work closely with local community and charitable organisations. That isn’t just something we say for effect – in the last 5 years Orion has donated over £1.5 Million to our chosen charity partners. You can read more about our charitable work in Orion’s blog pages.

Our three chosen charities are Highland HospiceMaggies Highlands and MND Scotland. Orion has supported these organisations for a number of years in terms of donation and assistance in fundraising initiatives across the UK and Europe.

Our CSR Programme is designed to inspire our people to get behind the great work of these (and other) charity organisations in their local area. Our staff are incredibly proactive when it comes to charity and we are happy to support fundraising initiatives wherever we can.
