Corporate Social Responsibility
At Finyx, we are committed to fostering positive relationships within our communities (specifically in York, Belfast and London where our three offices are located). We focus on effectively leveraging our consultants’ wide and varied skillsets to create a tangible influence on local organisations & charities. We aim to incorporate CSR principles into our ways of working, encouraging all of our staff to pro-actively suggest new initiatives (drawing from their own personal experiences) and view CSR as an enjoyable and rewarding part of their working life, as opposed to a “box-ticking” exercise.
We also apply these principles internally, regularly reviewing our workplace practices to ensure that we factor environmental sustainability into our day-to-day operations and that we operate in an ethical and inclusive way (in accordance with our ID&E Commitment).
CSR principles are also at the heart of our client practice. We are committed to delivering a high quality of service to our customers, working with their best interests at heart. Specifically, when working with our regional and national public sector clients, our CSR values and initiatives help us to understand the importance of and prioritise delivering value to the UK public.
One of the key responsibilities of the board in 2022 was selecting our partner organisations by office location for 2023. Below are our partners
York Community Consulting:
Is a pro-bono business management consultancy based out of the University of York. YCC offer consulting services to multiple charities and other start-ups. The Finyx York office (FDC) have worked collaboratively with York Community Consulting over the past 4 years and we are now their official partner meaning we will be aiming to provide support across multiple areas including mentorship of project managers, general guidance on consulting practices, and targeted workshops on employability, workplace skills etc.
Queens Consulting Society:
Is a branch of the Irish Students Consulting Group (ISCG). They offer students the opportunity to take part in real life consulting projects with start-ups and larger businesses. This provides students with great networking and development opportunities to help students prepare for future consulting roles. Finyx NI are supporting Queens Consulting Society by providing student mentorship, essential skills workshops and industry & consulting insight sessions.
Details of our London-based partner organisation will be shared in due course.
To help us achieve our commitment, the CSR board leads our CSR activities and decides on the steer for forward-looking priorities, whilst ensuring all employees are offered the opportunity to opine and have their view represented.
The board has representatives from across our grades and locations, reflecting the enthusiasm and drive of our whole workforce to make Finyx a valuable part of our communities and to ensure we recognise and meet our corporate responsibilities. We rotate the membership of the Board annually, to provide the opportunity for as many employees as possible to serve on it and to ensure fresh perspectives are included on our chosen initiatives and whether these best utilise our skills to have a genuine impact.
The Board oversees our CSR as defined in its broadest sense as well, including looking after community involvement in more detail. Specifically, the Board are responsible for:
- maintaining and implementing our CSR policy
- overseeing, managing and evaluating community involvement activity
- managing the selection of partner organisations with which we will carry our community involvement
- managing relationships with external parties involved
