Corporate Social Responsibility

Our culture has always reflected our core values of putting our clients first and delivering the right solutions, but our on-going mission is to keep corporate responsibility at the heart of our growing business. We aim to manage the impact of our business on people, suppliers, communities, clients and the environment.

To achieve this, we look for ways where we can make a positive influence in the communities where we work. We also seek to minimise our environmental footprint and to provide a professional and supportive workplace for our colleagues to work, enabling us to deliver the best possible service to our clients. Our comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility plan aims to contribute to a sustainable future, focussing on four pillars – Charities, Clients, Environment and People.

Charities

Bailey team has a rich tradition of voluntary work and charitable giving. We focus our donations to smaller organisations where our help will make a meaningful difference. We want to share the good work we do with everyone across the firm and continue to support our people in contributing to charities and their communities. We do this in a variety of ways, in particular by promoting volunteering and making donations to charities in recognition of activities staff do in their own time.

People

We are dedicated to encouraging diversity and wellbeing at Bailey, led by our Diversity and Inclusion Committee and Employee Assistance Programme. It is essential that our workforce is engaged, motivated and diverse, with a wide range of backgrounds, skills and experience. We are also committed to being a living wage employer and ensure that all our consultants are paid as such. We are also committed to ensuring our business and supply chains are free from slavery or human trafficking, and we continue to be a signatory to the Modern Slavery Act.

Clients

As a leading financial and professional services firm and employer, we believe it is vital to act responsibly and with the utmost integrity in all our dealings both within the business and in our external relationships. As part of our on-going commitment and focus on corporate responsibility, we have become a signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). The principal aim of PRI is to build a more sustainable financial future for clients and business according to ethical, environmental, social and governance factors.

Environment

We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment by measuring and managing our environmental footprint in respect of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, plastic consumption and reducing waste. Aided by EcoAct, we calculate our GHG emissions and make changes to reduce our carbon footprint. Measures we’ve taken include: the introduction of smart metering, investing in energy efficient lighting and equipment, and promoting our cycle to work scheme. We also recognise the importance of reducing waste. We have removed all plastic cups from all offices, and reduced our waste going to landfill by enhancing our recycling initiatives.

Culture and Values

Our culture and values are at the heart of everything we do. We value a personal approach to our work, driven by trusted and talented people. We also have a strong sense of corporate responsibility, aiming to manage the impact of our business on people, suppliers, communities and the environment.

We put our clients first and focus on delivering the right solutions. We are driven by our clients’ success, developing long-term relationships and achieving high levels of client satisfaction. We have proudly served our clients for over a century, taking the time to understand their individual circumstances and delivering tailored solutions.

We have high-quality people who deliver excellent service. Our success is based on the quality and commitment of our employees and partners. Their continued development and our ability to attract and retain the best people is at the forefront of the people programmes we have in place and are enhancing. We strive to create a rewarding and fulfilling work environment, providing career development and training opportunities while promoting an appropriate work/life balance.

We are trustworthy and act with integrity. Our approach to working with our clients means our people spend more time developing strong relationships, built on trust and understanding. We value our excellent reputation, and are committed to maintaining the highest level of ethical standards in the conduct of our business affairs.
