Engaging with the local community in all our locations and taking responsibility for our social and environmental impacts is part of the Bedell culture.
Rather than just signing cheques, we select initiatives where we can build relationships over time and leave a lasting legacy. In the Channel Islands, for example, we have become increasingly involved in a charity that offers opportunities to disadvantaged families.
We support several projects for young people and give cash donations to local and national charities. We encourage our people to fundraise for charities of their choice, for which we often provide match funding.
Our reputation enables us to recruit the very best people in their fields. Our policy is always to select people purely on the basis of their talent and potential, irrespective of ethnicity, gender, age or beliefs.
The quality of our employees is reflected in the contributions many of them make to the community, giving their time and expertise to working parties and professional bodies, and helping to shape evolving legislative framework in some of the jurisdictions where we are based.
As an office-based business, we have relatively limited impact on the environment. But we would like to keep it to a minimum. Our Green Project Team drives our progress in recycling, cutting waste, and improving energy efficiency. Commissioned consultants help us cut our carbon footprint and manage waste more efficiently.
