Alium Are Dragon Award Winners!
We are delighted to share with you all that Alium Partners has been recognised for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) achievements at the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards.
In the last year we have been supporting the Uprising Fastlaners programme, which helps to address high youth unemployment in the east end of London. Staff volunteers have been working with young graduates who faced barriers to the workplace. We have hosted interview days, director-led mentoring sessions, and advice on networking; all designed to help young candidates increase their confidence and boost their chances of employment.
Winners of the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards were announced at a Mansion House ceremony. The Awards, now in its 28th year is among the most established and distinguished Corporate Responsibility Awards in the UK.
The Lord Mayor Alan Yarrow, who presented the awards, said;
“I could not be more proud to champion the participants and winners of the 2015 Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards. Their innovative contribution to our communities shows the immense value of CSR. In fact, we could not do without it. Today’s Dragon Award winners such as Alium Partners, are continuing this work with a broad range of initiatives – enabling business employees to use their skills to maximise the impact of the voluntary sector, and help 300,000 Londoners directly. Whether serving as mentors for school children, or accountants for charities – they are a fantastic example of corporate community engagement, and helping to build a fairer and more prosperous society.”
This year, the applicants for the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards volunteered around 92,000 hours, helped around 300,000 people in London and created 5,000 training placements as a result of their community engagement.
