Our commitment to Corporate and Social Responsibility

One of the Firm’s principal values is “Good citizenship”. We therefore aim to blend our long business experience with a contemporary business mentality. We act for clients of all sizes from a wide range of business sectors and recognise that the advice we provide, and the way we operate, has an impact on a variety of stakeholder groups.

The firm has an active Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, led by a Partner, James Peach. Our CSR programme and policies are focused around four stakeholder groups; Our clients; Our local community; Our environment; and Our staff.

Our clients

At Kreston Reeves we have built our business on the basic principles of trust, loyalty and commitment to our clients. We apply the same principles in all our dealings with business contacts and the people who choose to pursue a career with us.

Today, we believe that it is no coincidence that the consistent application of those principles has formed the basis of long term relationships with our clients and many of the contacts we meet in the course of conducting our business. We try to exceed our clients’ expectations and have a ‘Client Charter’ in place which helps us strive to provide clients with a first class, efficient, caring and continuing professional service. For more details of our Client Charter please see our Client Charter page.

We're proud to announce that we have been accredited with ‘Exceptional Client Service’ in a recent client care survey provided by Investors in Customers (IIC).

IICs’ analysis of the survey benchmarked our services against other professional services firms, and commercial companies in the form of a 1, 2 or 3 star rating. We're delighted to have been accredited with a 3 star rating which is a significant achievement with fewer than 15% of organisations achieving this rating at their first attempt.

Our staff

We have core values in place which specify that:

Although the firm is always open to ideas, there is also a staff forum which meets four times a year whereby members of staff are encouraged to put forward any ideas or suggestions and also have the chance to ask questions through nominated representatives.

Kreston Reeves has a Sports and Social committee which organises social events for staff. These include an annual car rally, an annual quiz and a Christmas party, as well as inter-office football and netball tournaments.

In 2015 Kreston Reeves completed a Firmwide survey to help develop a CSR Programme, which aligns the staff's wishes and enthusiasm. The results of this survey can be found here and will be reflected in the Firm's future CSR activities.

We support the UN’s drive for global sustainability goals

The UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development aim to transform our world by 2030.

We are endorsing the ICAEW’s support for these goals by choosing 4 of the 17 goals upon which our firm can focus our efforts.

Our four focal issues can be seen below. In the course of 2017/18 we will look to arrange CSR activities which align with these goals, as defined by our staff. For more information on the ICAEW’s support for all 17 goals, please click here.
