At Claims Consortium Group we are committed to making a positive contribution to our community through charity fundraising, consideration for our environment and looking after the welfare of our team of almost 250 staff and our UK-wide supplier network.
Claims Consortium Group is proud to have gained the nationally-recognised Investors in People accreditation (IIP).
In the words of an independent IIP assessor in 2013:
“… an environment that is based on openness, trust and respect between all colleagues; enables people to feel engaged in bringing about improvement and empowered with decision making that will deliver higher levels of customer service. Your imaginative use of incentives and a culture that recognises achievement ensures that people feel valued for their efforts.
“I found all of your staff to be extremely enthusiastic about their work and your company – they share a real desire to give your customers the best possible service and also to support their colleagues in their endeavours.”
We aim to maintain an active social calendar for staff incorporating a mix of charity, sport and purely social events. We reward staff and our suppliers during busy times to maintain motivation, and we always ensure that the health and welfare of our people is placed over and above the needs of the business.
We are main sponsors of Somerset-based charity Stand Against Violence (SAV), which aims to reduce youth violence by equipping young people with the skills and tools to defuse potentially violent situations.
Our sponsorship provides strategic funding to support a series of SAV’s youth workshops and educational events.
We are supporters of Taunton Association for the Homeless, Somerset’s largest charitable organisation which helps homeless people and those at risk of homelessness. We offer assistance to the homeless with preparation for job interviews – conducting mock interviews and providing training though a bespoke IT module created by our IT team.
Additionally we regularly host and take part in many fundraisers. Most recently these have included fundraising events for charities including the British Heart Foundation, Nepal earthquake Appeal, Soi Dog Foundation, Hope for Food, Insurance Charities and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Claims Consortium Group operates an environmental policy conforming to the requirements of ISO14001 that forms the framework for minimising our environmental impact.
Our policy focuses on the reduction of use of paper in the office, waste recycling, reduction on energy use (including motion sensor lighting). We also run a successful company Car Share Scheme.
