CET’s Corporate Social Responsibility Programme, #TheCETWay, targets four key areas of business:
Our CSR initiatives are underpinned and enhanced by Innovation and Technology, which already runs throughout our business.
CET’s People focus has already begun through a number of charity events, awareness raising initiatives and community support.
CET is committed to protecting the Mental Health of all employees. We pledge to combat the stigma of living with Mental Health conditions, as well as to create a safe environment for our employees to be open with all of their colleagues, including the Senior Management Team.
By embedding Mental Health conversations into all our practices, from performance management to Health & Safety, we will create a culture that makes Mental Health a priority. We continue to look for new ways to support all of our employees, raise awareness of issues, including creating more Mental Health First Aiders and Champions in addition to our existing ones that are based across the CET Group.
Our Senior Management Team all participated in #MHAW Challenges, to raise awareness of Mental Health and to raise money for our nominated charities. Challenges included swimming the equivalent of the length of the English Channel, giving up alcohol and barbecuing across multiple sites in the group.
The Group also launched it's Let's Talk campaign, aiming to get conversations started around Mental Health and to create an open culture.
On 17th May 2019, CET signed the Time to Change Employer Pledge, creating an action plan on how we will promote Mental Health Awareness across the Group. To read the pledge in full, please click here.
