TR Global Events Ltd. is proud to be one of the first in the Events sector to join the GBC. It has never been more important for businesses to regain trust and show they care about more than just profit.
The Good Business Charter exists for all companies and charities with 10 employees or more across all industries and sectors and works through a simple online self-certification process. At a time when people are caring more about who they work for and who they buy from, the Good Business Charter offers a straightforward accreditation which recognises organisations which prioritise and care for their employees, the environment, customers and suppliers, whilst also paying their taxes according to the spirit of the law. The GBC and its members seek to inspire many other businesses to follow suit.
The Good Business Charter has the support of both the CBI and the TUC which both have trustee representation on its board. Other partners of the GBC include the Living Wage Foundation and the Prompt Payment Code. The GBC has been set up by a charity called the Good Business Foundation and accreditation will be free for all companies in the first year.
Chairman of the GBC board, Simon Fox, said: “The Good Business Charter brings together 10 standards, most of which already exist, but in separate places. We have brought them together to give a coherent overall position for businesses to aspire to. We believe that the GBC has enormous potential to change business practice for good. We hope that because of its simplicity and cost effectiveness, it will quickly gain support.”
CEO of TR Global Events, Tony Murdock, said: “We are delighted to have received the Good Business Charter accreditation. The GBC underpins our commitment to prioritise and consider our teams, customers and suppliers. In the age of well-being companies must demonstrate adequate processes are in place to ensure practices are instilled in the ethos of your company, the Good Business Charter is ideal to help you reconsider many vital components to ensure you uphold these standards.”
