We are pleased to announce that Hickton Group has collaborated with South Yorkshire’s Community Foundation (SYCF) – a local foundation which is one of 46 across the UK, and the Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards 2018 Winner – to invest in our corporate social responsibility.

Founded in 1986, SYCF partner with local businesses including some of our own clients including Henry Boot and Barnsley College to ‘give back’ to the community with a purpose of making a real difference to the South Yorkshire region and making it an enriched place to work and live.

As part of the SY100 patronage scheme, we have developed a corporate social responsibility strategy. Employees are given the opportunity to invest their own time to the local community through volunteering work and undertaking pro-bono work with local schools and businesses to educate and advise in our specialist areas of construction.

“Hickton Group team members are a dedicated and passionate bunch and it has been a pleasure to help them achieve the launch of their CSR Strategy. We have been working with businesses who have been giving back to their communities for over 32 years and we pride ourselves on giving them the best and most efficient service and advice, which allows them to make a real impact on local communities. We are lucky to have so many businesses in South Yorkshire who are supporting local communities in partnership with SYCF, like Hickton Group.”

SYCF Corporate Relationships Manager, Michelle Dickinson

Working alongside SYFC, Hickton Group will be focusing efforts on contributing time to the four CSR pillars which include Communities, Employment, Education and Sustainability, in order to give back and leave a positive impact on the local area where are head office is located.

“We are delighted to be part of the SY100 programme and to be utilising their skills in this area. We have created a CSR strategy, volunteering policy and have begun implementing CSR activities across Hickton Group already. Michelle is wonderful to work with and we are looking forward to partnering together to make a real difference to our internal and external environments.”
