At Abtran, we strive to incorporate Corporate Social Responsibilty (CSR) into the day to day running of our business. That means focusing on our people and the community in which we work.
Through all our CSR activities, we look to engage, develop and challenge our workforce, whilst in turn positively impacting on the wider community.
Our approach to CSR is focused around two core strands: People in the Workplace and Our Community.
Our Workplace initiatives include a diverse range of Sports and Social teams including soccer, golf and tag rugby. We also actively get involved in various National Workplace events.
National Workplace Wellbeing Day at Abtran
During ‘National Workplace Wellbeing Day’in 2015, Abtran ran a number of event across Abtran from Chair Yoga, to an introduction to Mindfulness, Relaxation rooms with a number of representatives on-site including a Nutritionist, a Kinesiology Practitioner and Personal Trainers. The event was a great success with people from across the company taking part. We’d like to thank our CSR partners and staff for their support and contribution and look forward to building on this success for next year’s event.
‘Mind Ur Buddy’ programme
Another important part of our commitment to our People is the ‘Mind Ur Buddy’ programme in association with Pieta House. Through partnership with Pieta House, our People become trained ‘Buddy Supports’ (BSP’s). Training equips BSP’s with the skills to coach and support their colleagues in the work environment.
We are committed to playing a role in both the economic and social development of the communities in which we live and work.
This commitment to helping out in our Community led to the foundation of The Abtran Charity Club in 2009. Our focus this year is to concentrate our activity on Education and Employability in our local communities.
Aligned with our desire to focus on Education and employability, we have partnered with Suas Educational Development, a not-for-profit movement that supports quality education programmes in our communities in Ireland.
We have an amazing group of people working with local children to guide and mentor them through a structured literacy programme. This programme provides literacy support for 8-14 year olds across Ireland, to increase their literacy levels and educational attainment, improve their self-esteem and enhance their perception of the importance of learning.
Facilitation of School Visits: We have hosted a number of visits to our facilities in Cork, giving groups of school children an opportunity to experience what it would be like to work at Abtran.
CV Clinics: We are keen to work with pupils from local secondary schools. Our aim is to provide advice and guidance to those preparing to enter the world of work by helping pupils to enhance and optimise their CVs to showcasing their skills and talents.
