For Acorn, corporate responsibility is about core values and principles that govern the way we operate. It's about ensuring we sustain a safe working environment, have a positive impact on our people, the communities we work in and the wider environment, and build the trust and respect of our customers.

We aim to create a balance between the development of opportunities with our customers, stimulating and rewarding our staff, working with and supporting our local communities and sustaining the environment in which we operate. 

We achieve Corporate Social Responsibilities by:

  • Launching and taking part in the first Welsh Byte Night to raise funds for Action for Children. Held in October 2016, the event gave businesses the opportunity to help the most disavantaged children and young people. 

  • Developing and running CEO Kickabout with the Football Association of Wales (FAW) Trust, a charitiable initiative that raises funds towards grassroots football. 

Each year, Acorn also supports Fairtrade Fortnight by promoting Fairtrade products to our staff, clients, jobseekers and learners. Fairtrade enables producers in developing countries to get a better deal and to invest in their communities. We hold internal activities organised by staff, including promoting Fairtrade products such as dry goods, chocolate tea and coffee.

Acorn works all with its clients to ensure the employment experience of all its temporary workers complies fully with the Base Code of the Ethical Trading Initiative – this code constitutes the minimum standard to which we operate, whilst at all times looking to exceed expectations.
