The award recognises the powerful and positive role that we are playing in our local communities. They are given to companies who demonstrate their leadership on the key social and environmental issues where business can make a difference at local, national and international levels.
Cath Hargreaves, Education Partnerships Advisor said: “We are delighted to receive this Big Tick in recognition of the work experience programme we have implemented here at Warton and Samlesbury. To win an award for a programme which is still in its infancy is fantastic.”
Stephen Howard, Chief Executive, Business in the Community said: “I congratulate BAE Systems on achieving their Big Tick. There has never been a better time to showcase that business can be a force for good – for the mutual benefit of both business and the communities in which they operate. Our Awards for Excellence are all about celebrating responsible business and BAE Systems has demonstrated that they can have a positive impact on society and people without losing focus on their business.”
