Social value in the community

We’re contributing to the people behind the projects in our communities

An element of our social value commitment is our approach to creating long-lasting, environmentally sustainable communities. But just as important is the social value we deliver into the people in the communities in which we build.

Our social value strategy involves the identification, measurement and monetisation of the outputs from our business that benefit the taxpayer, the communities where we work and the individual. Our social value strategy will contribute towards creating exceptional customer experiences.

Our strategy is underpinned by Morgan Sindall Group's Total Commitments:

  • Protecting People
  • Developing People
  • Improving the environment
  • Working together with our supply chain
  • Enhancing communities

Our Total Commitments are aligned to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.

Adding value to our communities

The length and breadth of our social value approach is very much designed with the community in mind. As well focusing on objectives that are of national importance, such as economic recovery, our decentralised business approach means that we are able to quickly create value that is dedicated to localised objectives. These might include the recruitment and employment of employees and apprentices from a geographical range, supporting mentoring and training programmes for unemployed or under-represented groups with initiatives such as our virtual work experience programme as well as supporting local SMEs through our Work Radar programme.

How we report on social value

Our Social Value Bank is an online tool that we’ve developed to enable project teams to measure their social value in monetary terms. This in turn provides our customers and partners with easy to understand metrics to really show the tangible value of construction work in their communities.

The outputs of the Social Value Bank are aligned to the HM Treasury Green Book and wider OECD Guidelines.
