In September 2019 we held our first CSR training Workshop, attended by 12 BFFF members. The seminar explored the subject of corporate social responsibility and modern slavery.

CSR/Sustainability has become a large part of business development, business to business and business to customer partnerships over the last five years. It is no longer a ‘nice to have’ for any company wanting to maintain and exceed customer requirements, attract the best people, or simply meet environmental and social impact legislation. Excellence in CSR is also increasingly providing a competitive edge when it comes to winning work.
Yet well targeted, business focused CSR still remains one of the most underutilised business tools for reducing a company’s costs, building partnerships with customers and suppliers, engaging with your employees and responsibly managing your environmental and social impacts.
What the training delivered?
The course was run by Collins McHugh who have helped shape a number of leading UK companies CSR activity over the last 15 years, introducing industry leading innovations and getting clients recognised for CSR excellence in a variety of ways; this includes a range of award wins with the National Business Awards, Business in the Community, Hire Association of Europe and Construction News, including Sustainable company of the Year and also having one of our clients ranked 1st in the Observer’s independent assessment of CSR in the country’s top 350 businesses.
NFU Mutual delivered the modern slavery part of the seminar and we thank them for their involvement.
