Sustainability at the Forefront of Business in Dacorum
By: Hemel Hempstead Business Ambassadors
Sarah Barrett, Business and Community Engagement Manager, for HMP The Mount outlined the efforts made to rehabilitate prisoners prior to the end of their sentences, and the advantages and benefits of businesses employing ex-offenders.
Stuart Chalmers, HR Manager, and Leonie Toal, PR & Social Media Manager, both from Epson (UK) Ltd discussed the company's origins – from a humble watch manufacturer in Japan in 1942 - through to its present-day innovations in the fields of inkjet printers, visual and wearable technologies and robotics.
Epson must be congratulated on its extensive CSR (corporate social responsibility)
Stuart Chalmers, commented, "Our CSR programme is designed to support the employees working within the business as well as charities and the circular economy. It acts as a differentiator, attracting employees as much as it does new business."
Epson now operates in 94 countries worldwide and has housed its UK headquarters in Hemel Hempstead for over 30 years, moving from Maylands to its current premises on Westside in Apsley in 2008.
The next meeting of the Hemel Hempstead Business Ambassadors will take place on Thursday 15 November at West Herts College with an update from James Doe, Assistant Director of Planning and Regeneration at Dacorum Borough Council.
