Trivallis has been shortlisted in two categories of the Wales Responsible Business Awards 2018, Business in the Community Cymru’s award programme which recognises companies making a positive difference here in Wales.
The Awards identify and showcase employers from across Wales, regardless of sector or size, that are developing talent, creating stronger links with communities, engaging with schools, reducing environmental impacts, encouraging wellbeing and having an impact through volunteering.
Trivallis has been shortlisted in the Volunteering Impact in Wales category for work it is doing to change the lives of people across RCT with projects to improve areas where they work and live.
It has also been shortlisted in the ACT Training Talent Development category for its work to create opportunities for training and development.
Ian Thomas, CEO at Trivallis said: “At Trivallis we are totally committed to making a difference to people’s lives and our communities. Our values are to listen, respect, engage and progress and I feel there’s no better way to showcase that we are doing these things than through our training and volunteering programmes.
“More often than not, the valleys are seen as a statistic with areas of high deprivation and unemployment. This is something we are tackling, head on, by offering opportunities for work, improving people’s skillsets and improving communities through a dedicated programme of partnership regeneration work. We are proud to be here and we want the people who live in our communities to feel the same.”
Matt Appleby, Director at Business in the Community Cymru added: “Every year the Wales Responsible Business Awards recognise companies that are making a positive difference, beyond just profit, right here in Wales.
“By achieving a place on the shortlist, Trivallis has demonstrated its commitment to operating responsibly, engaging with communities, customers, colleagues and suppliers to have a measurable impact on some of Wales’ most intractable challenges.
“On behalf of the Award sponsors, all our members and the team at BITC Cymru, I would like to congratulate all of the companies who made the 2018 shortlist – we look forward to celebrating in style at our Gala Dinner this June.”
The announcement of the 2018 shortlist coincides with the launch of Responsible Business Week, an annual awareness campaign which celebrates the brighter side of business by sharing great responsible business success stories. Throughout the UK employers will be showcasing inspiring stories and bringing experts together to help businesses create healthy communities at speed and scale.
