Corporate Social Responsibility

Our Commitment

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.

Our Partners

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.

Corporate Social Responsibility Board

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

"It's been both a fantastic opportunity and a privilege to be able to build out our CSR function at Finyx. Like many of the colleagues who I spoke to when we began our CSR journey, I've had mixed experiences with corporate CSR in the past. However, when done right it's a great vehicle for our employees to give something back, for us to share our skills on a pro-bono basis with the local communities, and to really deliver tangible differences. Our approach has been rooted in our ambitions and what we think CSR should be, never to tick boxes. I think that's quite unique and refreshing."

Pete Cunningham
“I like the idea that organisations have purpose, beyond their commercial objectives. For me, one critical  element of a company's purpose has to be to make a positive impact on the communities of which it is part. Our CSR approach allows Finyx to do that in ways that benefit our CSR partner organisations and their stakeholders and is highly rewarding for our people. CSR provides us with an amazing opportunity to develop corporately and individually. I think it also makes us function as a better team,  as in our CSR work we see aspects of each other that we don't otherwise come across and this makes our working relationships richer. ”
Howard Lewis
“Organisations have a responsibility and purpose beyond simply making a profit – they should give back to the communities they are a part of. They should also empower their employees to support their communities too. Our Finyx CSR approach really embodies this principle and I am happy that we have selected CSR partners in the local community and are working with them to create positive impacts.”
Kelechi Okeahialam
“As an organisation, it is important that we recognise our collective ability to have a positive social, economic and environmental impact particularly on our local respective areas. We foster the development of skills that not only equip us to help our clients, but also provide support to charities and other organisations that seek to create a positive local impact.”

Dom Ryan
“CSR is a vital part of any organisation, we all have a collective responsibility to give back and make a positive impact in our local communities. I have been volunteering within my local community for many years, so it was a no brainer to get involved in Finyx’s CSR board.  We have implemented a CSR approach that reflects our employees values and empowers them to use their skills and experience to make a positive impact throughout our CSR partners.”
Jonothan Orr
"As individuals, we have a huge amount of transferrable skills that can benefit a variety of organisations. At Finyx, we have recognised this and have extended our CSR responsibilities beyond simply fund-raising and actually help our partner organisations at their core. This is a quintessentially Finyx way of approaching things – ensuring that whatever we do is impactful and makes a difference, and I am proud that this philosophy of ours has extended into our CSR function."
