Making A Difference
Corporate Social Responsibility
At STEP, we are passionate about how we can make a real difference to the community and environment in which we operate. Our corporate responsibility policy is underpinned by our core values and is at the heart of everything we do.
STEP is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to ensuring equal opportunities, fairness of treatment, dignity, work-life balance and the elimination of all forms of discrimination in the workplace for all staff and job applicants. We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which all decisions are based on merit.
We are dedicated to carrying out regular charitable activity including annual fundraising events and community involvement. We have a dedicated team made up of both staff and our business tenants who work in partnership to organise these activities.
STEP Charity of the Year
We are also dedicated to fundraising for local charities. Our Charity of the Year for 2016/17 is It’s Good 2 Give’s Ripple Retreat.
Voted for by staff at STEP, the charity offers support to young cancer patients and their families in Scotland. Did you know that 1600 children a year are diagnosed with cancer in the UK?
STEP will support Ripple Retreat by volunteering and planning a number of fundraising business events throughout the year. The charity’s long-term goal is to reach £1.5 million to build the Ripple Retreat on the south bank of Loch Venachar. The retreat will provide affected families with a safe, restful place for short breaks. Building work has begun and it is hoped that the short-stay-home will be ready by the end of the summer.
