This episode asks entrepreneur, founder and managing director of one of the South’s leading award-winning chains of children’s nurseries, Tops Day Nurseries and Aspire Training what she expects from her suppliers. Cheryl’s sustainability journey began several years ago, in part to meet legislation yes – but, more importantly for her, to meet her own personal ethical standards. Her journey, she describes, is a partnership between her and her customers…the children and the parents.

Review

What are you doing already? Whether the answer is something – or nothing we will provide a review of the potential of your business to run a more responsible operation. The potential to reduce your running costs, for example, or to help with smarter procurement and sourcing solutions and suppliers. We can guide you through the environmental management element of the tender process and, ultimately, help ensure you meet the changing expectations of your customers – and your workforce.

Guidance

Our team is on hand to offer continued advice to support you in your corporate sustainability or social value journey. We are at the end of an email or phone, or we can join you for meetings.

Workforce

Many companies find that engaging the workforce in their aspirations to become a more responsible business helps to ensure its success. That is where we come in, by organising;

  • Sustainability Days  Helping to engage your workforce through various exhibits, presentations and an interactive itinerary.
  • Lunch and Tell  These are mini 2-hour sessions towards staff engagement.
  • Training  We run an annual programme to accelerate your business and ensure it’s Fit for the Future.
  • Workshops  Half day or two-hour training sessions.

Customer Hospitality

With running a more responsible business now as important as quality or excellent customer service, companies are keen to demonstrate their advancements in this field.  We support clients by enabling them to host half or full-day hospitality events, designed to suit them and the industry sector they operate within.  Each event is tailored to suit you and to enable you to keep within budget and, to ultimately ensure you attract and retain the right type of customer stay ahead of their competition.
