Landmark Information Group has launched a staff recognition and corporate social responsibility (CSR) portal for its 400 employees.
The portal, Bee Hive, aims to recognise employees’ personal fundraising achievements as well as the wider CSR initiatives led by the business. It also provides details on the latest challenges, community programmes and employee welfare schemes that staff can get involved in, as well as update them on the amount raised so far.
Over the past year, Landmark’s initiatives have included sponsored runs that total over 150km in distance and cycling challenges that reach over 3,000km, including those backed by Landmark’s partner and world championship cycling medalist Jessica Varnish.
During the 2014/15 financial year, more than £73,000 was raised by Landmark employees.
Mark Milner, chief executive officer of Landmark Information Group, said: “I am overwhelmed by the amount of personal time staff have generously volunteered to help causes and charities less fortunate. Charities are a personal choice and Bee Hive has been deliberately developed to support this.
“Everyone across the board has got involved, from senior executives through to front-line staff, all of whom have baked, cycled, run, swam and even slept rough in support of causes that are important to them.
“There is a desire across the Landmark business to support community initiatives as well as charities that are personally close to people’s hearts. Bee Hive helps to tell the stories behind the fundraising challenges and CSR programmes.”
Landmark is one of several businesses owned by DMGT. Over the coming year, Bee Hive will be rolled out to around 800 employees at these organisations.
