At Brightside we pride ourselves on being an ethical company.
Here are some of the ways in which we ensure we commit to this as an organisation:
- Business Practices – Running an ethical business is about doing the right thing. That means acting in ways that are transparent, fair and honest. It’s also about being aware of the implications of our actions and the effect they have on other people and on the environment.
- Employment – We realise that a service is only as good as the staff you employ, and for this reason we strive hard to be a good employer, which includes offering excellent rates of pay and a good working environment with opportunities to develop specialist skills.
- Inclusion & Involvement – Openness and dialogue are essential components of an ethical business. We listen to people because they know what’s going on and because they matter to us.
- Promoting outstanding working practices – We take every opportunity to raise the profile of additional needs, including offering regular social events which are open to everyone.
We are a Living Wage employer
Brightside is a proud Living Wage accredited Employer. This means that every member of staff in our organisation earns not just the minimum wage but the Living Wage. The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually, based on the cost of living in the UK. We are committed to valuing our staff, their wonderful work and dedication to our philosophy of care and support and paying the Living Wage is just one way we demonstrate this commitment.
