MARKETPLACE BEST PRACTICE
Borras aim to maximise outcomes by delivering exceptional value and service to our clients while maintaining strong working relationships with suppliers and sub-contractors. We pride ourselves on being a business with a purpose beyond profit and continually strive to achieve improvements across every social and economic issues we face. This is not only to ensure our clients receive the best possible value for money but to also provide lasting, collective benefits to the communities and economies we touch.
We have a strict Sustainability and Ethical Procurement Policy in place which, through partnership with our suppliers and contractors, ensures that the environmental and social impacts of our business activities have been considered and, where possible, minimised.
Contributing to local economies
Borras do our utmost to contribute to the economic prosperity of the areas in which we work, including: engaging with SME’s, employing local labour, aiding workforce skill development, providing work experience opportunities and supporting local charities and community groups.
Dedicated Employment Skill Plans are in place for many of our projects, these are created in conjunction with our local authority clients and aim to ensure as much of their investment as possible is ‘recycled’ into local communities.
TrAC (Training and Apprenticeships in Construction)
Borras are members of Training and Apprenticeships in Construction (TrAC) an approved Apprenticeship Training Agency (ATA). These agencies help employers who aren’t always able to provide the 2-4 years employment typically required to help an apprentice finish their training. ATA’s employ a pool of apprentices who complete their on the job training through agreed placements with contractors such as ourselves. TrAC allows us to provide local apprenticeship opportunities across our operating area regardless of how long we are on site.
The project went very smoothly and was actually incredibly enjoyable for Debbie and I and we really enjoyed being part of it.
