Corporate Responsibility

Good corporate citizenship has been in Spectrecom’s culture from the beginning, and it’s shared as part of the induction process for every new member of staff. We quietly but firmly embrace our environmental and social responsibilities with a view to having a positive impact on society.

In practice, this means that we make determined efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, and we recycle what we can. We run work experience and apprenticeship schemes for young people, we have been paying the London Living Wage since 2011, and we actively support all the people who work for us with generous benefits.

Every year since we started, we have increased our annual donation of billable hours of expertise and content to help benefit the preferred charities of our choice.
