The role of business is changing. It is now widely accepted that business has to do more than making a profit. It also must drive social and community change. A combination of factors – evolving relationships between developed and emerging organisations within the public and private sectors – has led to a greater understanding of the connection and inter-dependency between business and society. There is an expectation that business addresses social and community health issues through its operations, products and services and its unique expertise. At Core Physio, we do this through:
- Our Marketplace: The most significant impact we can have on society is by supporting local economic stability and growth, which in turn provides opportunities to address some of the health issues that our communities are facing. It’s through our client work and the influence we can have on the wider community by making a commitment to audit our services benefits to the health of the local community and use the successes for growth
- Our Workplace: While our core business is all about delivering exceptional health service to our clients, we know that if we attract and retain the best people – and invest in them – we will deliver the best results for our clients. We pride ourselves on having the highest performing teams and want to be a highly inclusive organisation that creates an engaging environment where our people can develop to their full potential.
- Supporting Our Communities: Building on our commitment to building better health care through our work with our clients and our markets, we also invest in our communities both local and in other communities. Through our peoples’ time and skills, we invest in the education of tomorrow’s workforce to ensure that the skills and characteristics required to enable businesses and societies to thrive are available.We know, too, that businesses can transform economies, drive innovation and change communities. We invest, therefore, in local charities whose aims are mirrored to our commitment to improving the health and well-being of people suffering from chronic pain and mobility limiting conditions.
- Managing Our Environmental Impact: The biggest impact we can have on contributing to minimizing the negative effects of climate change is by supporting our clients and the marketplace as they move towards a low carbon economy. That said, we have a commitment and a responsibility to manage our own operations in a way that reduces our own environmental footprint.
