Romax takes our corporate social responsibility very seriously and we have a genuine proactive approach. We respect and value all of our stakeholders in the local and broader community, our employees and our suppliers. In addition to our environmental efforts, we support many good causes, as well as local and national charities. Our ethical values are reflected in everything we do, and we consider the impact that we make at all times, constantly striving for improvement. Social Value is a key aspect of our organisational ethos.
Romax charity support
Romax has always supported good causes. Each year we select, through a process involving all employees, which charities we will support. We always look to help a local charity and make sure that we can give back to our local community. We then organise a team to participate in fun and exciting challenges to raise money for that charity.
Local charity support
We support Porchlight a south-east based charity whose aim is to eradicate homelessness and rough sleeping in Kent and South-East London.
Proud Sponsors of Canterbury Pride since 2018.
Local support of Greenwich food bank. We are very proud of our team for helping out and donating food and much needed health and sanitary products, we also made an additional cash donation of £500 help sustain the great work that they do in our local community.
Volunteering with community projects
As long as Romax has been trading we have sought to pass it forward and pay back to society. Whether through our charity work, fundraising or sponsored ‘good cause paid workdays’ where our team members work for charitable organisations, including Demelza Hospice Care.
Work experience opportunities
We offer work placements, apprenticeships and skills training days where suitable and work with organisations supporting social mobility by providing work experience opportunities to help people get back to a position of self-sufficiency.
We offer educational visits to the Romax site, free marketing and data communications training days to provide students, clients and school children seeking work experience insight, opportunity and content to bolster their understanding and improve their life chances and CVs.
Positive environmental change
We actively promote positive environmental change and seek sustainable solutions (often at a higher cost ) to enable clients to meet their own sustainability targets so that we can create a platform for all of our clients to benefit from a mutual approach to sustainable environmental communication.
Our regular communications to clients provide tips on how to save money, improve efficiencies, introduce new and innovative schemes as well as introduce members or our team. For other previous examples of our client newsletter, please visit our back catalogue.
