In the run up to Christmas charity events run by a number Tangent staff in Billericay raised over £430 for Little Havens. One of the events was the 'inevitable' Christmas Jumper Day' when staff were able to dust down their seasonal knitwear (and other seasonal costumes) to brighten up the office.
Christmas Charity Update
Beard Shaving for Charity
After weeks of prevaricating Chris from the Tangent back-office finally went through with his promise to lose his beard if his colleagues donated to charity. So earlier in January he sat down and allowed some of his colleagues 'assist' him in the defoliation process raising over £70 for charity. Before and 'during' photographs are as below. Well done Chris - all for a good cause! Hope it wasn't too painful!
United Nations Global Compact (UNGC)
CSR/Sustainability - Tangent has a strong and positive story to tell about its CSR initiatives but we were delighted to receive the external measure of our Policies, Procedures & Activities through the Silver award we received from Ecovadis towards the end of 2015. Much of what we have built up around CSR follows the tenets (see below) of the UNGC but we had not formally signed up to join the UNGC movement.- this we have now done and are pleased to include the Commitment Letter from Simon Dear, our CEO stating our commitment.
