Corporate Citizenship

Monodraught are committed to working in an ethical and responsible manner.  Our products and services are low-carbon and low-energy solutions, which help people be in a healthier natural built environment, and as such, we are also keen to extend these strong ethical credentials into ways to contribute to our local and wider community. 

Monodraught: A place that benefits people

Our staff are one of our biggest assets and in 2015 we became a Living Wage Accredited Employer.  This means that every member of our staff in our organisation earns not just the minimum wage but the Living Wage. We are always looking at ways to improve our impact on employee wellbeing and how we can help in our local community. 

Community Relationships are vital and we are pleased to build on our relationship with Bucks Mind and support them in targeted strategic activities. We continue to source our materials within a 100 mile radius of High Wycombe, with 60% of our suppliers within a 50 mile radius, thereby investing in the local economy and supporting employment opportunities.

More skills, more opportunities

Our main focus in this area is in attracting, developing and retaining people through investment in skills.  The Investors in People accreditation is a good example of this. Our Research and Development team also have close links with UK Universities, in particular Brunel University and Coventry University and we look forward to working with more placement students this summer.

Positive Environment

Our product set can help our customers create a more positive environment through reduced energy usage and carbon footprint.  Across all our product sets we continue to look at ways to innovate and improve the built environment. 

Latest Activities

Last year, we undertook a variety of charitable activities and we are looking to consolidate and grow this area in 2016. Some of our latest activities are:

  • Monodraught took part in the Marlow Dragon Boat Race with a team of 12 employees, employees’ family and friends. It was a lovely experience for the Monodraught families that attended the event and all proceeds went to charity.
  • Sponsorship of Bucks Mind Raw Art Gallery. Also, one of our employees donated a piece of her work and we bought a piece of art for the office by artist Sue Smith.  The exhibition raised over £2,000 in one weekend.
  • Support of a 6-aside football team of Monodraught staff and friends with football shirts and a contribution towards match-fees promoting healthy habits among employees.
  • Contribution to Middlesex University research about small businesses who pay the Living Wage.  The research will be published in October 2016.
  • 12 of our employees competed in Santa’s Fun Run for the Rotary Club in Marlow and Bucks Mind.
  • A member of staff volunteers for Bucks Mind Apolo Art Group and her time is matched by Monodraught.
  • MacMillan coffee morning in September.
  • Participated in the Virgin Media Pitch to Rich programme in 2015: For every vote, we donated £1 to a special education institution.

Although we can and do provide support through fundraising, our aim is to use the skills and facilities we have to support our nominated charities, such as our marketing skills, use of our printers and vans where required.
