Giving Back Day gives New Directions staff work for a good cause

Employees at recruitment group New Directions are being encouraged to do their bit for a cause close to their heart with the introduction of a fully paid Giving Back Day.

On Giving Back Day, which is to be taken away from the workplace, some of the group’s employees may choose to volunteer or support related initiatives in the sectors New Directions works in – Education, Health, Social Care, Domiciliary Care, Pharmacy, Employment Checks. However, “staff can ultimately choose to use their… day towards any good cause they’re passionate about”, a company statement said.

They can also put their Giving Back Day to work as individuals or teams.

“Our only stipulation is that it positively impacts and benefits the local community in some way, with the view that all of our employees here… get to experience just how great it feels to support a cause that is truly relevant to them,” said Emily Tune, CEO at New Directions.

Established in 1994 and with its headquarters in Wales, the New Directions Group works to support and safeguard the communities it works with across the UK.
