Frequently Asked Questions


Who should go on this training?

We highly recommend that your business puts forward a candidate in one of the following roles:

Marketing

HR

Office manager

CSR/Sustainability

Communications

Business development

Graduate Trainee

This training will teach your candidate to map, measure and report on all your ethical activities and should be integrated into their day-to-day role for it to add maximum value to your business. 

All candidate's line managers, HR or senior teams are required to support them to undertake this training, participate in the membership and allocate the time to implement what they learn.


How long will it take?

All our training is self-lead, allowing your candidate to fit it around their day-to-day role.

On average, our students allocate 1-2 days a month to work through the content and participate in our community.


Why is the membership 12 months?

To support your candidate to complete all of the learning and maintain accountability.


Does your training provide CPD credits?

Not yet. But we are working on it!


Do you offer accreditation?

Yes. At the end of your training, we will hand you over to our trusted partner CSR-A if you wish to gain accreditation for your work. 


My business is a member of BITC or another responsible business network. Would your offer still benefit us?

Yes. We can support your business to get clear on your ethical activities to make the most out of these memberships. We offer guidance on this in the continuous improvement module of our training. 


Will my business need a budget for these ethical activities?

If your business is serious about its responsibility, you will need to invest in it for it to grow.

Experience has shown us that this type of activity is generally housed in the HR or marketing and communications budget.

Once your responsible activities are established, a separate budget would be recommended.

Where charitable contributions are made, businesses generally donate a percentage of their PBT to their responsible activities.


What are the tax benefits of being a responsible business?

UK companies are entitled to tax relief (Corporate Gift Aid) for qualifying charitable donations made to charities. The donations are paid before tax without the deduction of income tax. The contributions are deductible from the company’s total profits in the year in which the donations are made.
