Actively support education in every form; particularly in sustainable education programs designed to support the short and long term needs of local employers
We seek to reduce waste & consumption within our offices, job sites and the communities we live and work in
We are committed to devoting resources toward our Guiding Principles in a measurable way and ensure we consistently improve our performance annually
We ensure we support, and partner with, organizations that are in alignment with our principles, and actively hold them accountable for their initiatives when contract renewals are considered. Suppliers and Business Partners with structured programs supporting our own Stewardship initiatives are given preferential consideration.
Like many small companies we are inundated annually with requests for donations/tickets/ other offers, promising advertising or other forms of return. While these “standard” programs are viable- BASE believes these various programs and formats provide minimal return and have a minimal impact on their various causes and our overall business strategy, and as a result, BASE has created a Time is Money program that we feel is far more effective:
Our people are our company’s greatest asset and in 2017 we will begin to invest in our people- not causes or programs. What drives our people will ultimately drive our organization. In addition to the obvious and standard programs such as recycling, and power reduction we turn our most powerful asset toward the things that matter to them and to BASE with our $100,000.00 “Time is Money” program
How it works:
Every BASE employee willing to donate their time toward any organization or initiative that is aligned with our Corporate, Social & Environmental Stewardship Guiding Principles is eligible to be reimbursed for up to 40 hours of their donated time.
Paid time for the employee
Donation to their organization for the total of their donated wages (tax receipt will be required)
