We have recently set up the Kreston Reeves Foundation as a registered charity (registered number 1180402) which is run by Kreston Reeves staff members for the firm’s nominated charities (selected by staff on an annual basis).
The Foundation is the focal point for Kreston Reeves’ many charitable, fundraising and CSR activities.
Our staff and Partners are committed to giving back to our communities and this Foundation aims to combine the efforts from across the firm to maximise its impact.
We have core values in place which specify that:
- We treat all individuals within the Firm with honesty and respect.
- We consistently strive to develop all our people to the full, to be individuals of high regard in their community.
- We continually develop the range and depth of our own skills to service our clients and support our colleagues.
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 quiz and a Christmas party, as well as inter-office football and netball tournaments.
