Omega Resource Group recognised for CSR contributions
International recruitment experts Omega Resource Group has scooped up a CSR award at the 2013 Gloucestershire Business Awards, the largest business awards in the UK.
The award for corporate and social responsibility recognises the company’s commitment to responsible business practices across the four areas of local community, environment, their people and supply chain.
James Strickland, managing director of Omega, commented, "This award is special to the business as it is recognition for all we do within the community and for charity. It is an award that demonstrates the contribution every single member of our staff puts into their work as well as the local community.
“We continually aim to utilise our core values of dynamism, integrity and honesty to provide innovative services and superior value in the resource solutions sector."
Omega ensures its adherence to CSR by measuring its performance against seven themes of the socially responsible business: business processes, respecting people, managing people, the environment, fair operating practices, customer care and community involvement.
A large part of Omega’s recent success within the field of CSR is down to their work with the Rifles, an infantry regiment with especially closes ties to Gloucestershire and the south west through its history and links with the famous and former Gloucestershire Regiment.
The company offer high quality ex-service personnel from the regiment the chance to work with businesses to identify skills gaps in industry, which can be filled by suitably experienced service leavers.
By providing structured training and recruitment processes, with the promise of long term, sustainable employment across a range of sectors, Omega aims to help members of the community secure not just a job, but a new full-time career.
During the awards ceremony, which took place at the Cheltenham Racecourse on 3rd October 2013, Omega were noted for their contribution to community and society, as well as their demonstration of effective working partnerships with suppliers and business partners.
The company additionally strive to provide a wide range of community focused activities including sponsoring local sports teams, supporting local schools with career development opportunities and undertaking charity fundraising challenges.
