Corporate Social Responsibility

Print

As an ‘integrated’ contractor with capabilities of performing much of our work in-house, we are in the unique position of being able to not only promote corporate social responsibility, but also to engage in it in a way that affects change. Quadric has been a supporter of charitable endeavours and a facilitator of connections between our staff, contractors, and those in need; for the last 30 years; including Red Cross, Unicef, Sporting Wheelies, Careflight, and many more.

In January 2012, we took things a step further with the launch of ‘The Quadric Project’ : an exciting venture which aims to formalise Quadric’s philanthropic endeavours and further engage in dialogue and assistance between ourselves and charities. We work with both major NGO’s and small grass-roots organisations to deliver assistance in the form of money, time, and goods and services.

To start the ball rolling, each year Quadric donates 1% of company profit to the project, with the opportunities that arise from this making the idea really special. It connects furniture from our clients to non- profit offices, it allows staff to volunteer their time, it raises xmas gifts and supplies for needy families, it assists subcontractors to lend their services for shelters, and most importantly gives us all a sense of community.

Sounds like something you want to be a part of?  We are searching for:

– Quadric Project Advocates (individuals from a range of backgrounds who can commit to regularly volunteering their time to this worthy cause to promote, administer, and run the project)

– Quadric Project Participants (individuals who commit to volunteer for a single charitable opportunity)

– Quadric Project Contributors (organisations who may have goods and services to offer)

– Quadric Project Recipients (organisations that can receive charitable donations or require assistance)

If you are interested in engaging with the project or just want to know more, click here for contact details.
