Our Communities

Our customers and colleagues are not the only people we support. We're just as committed to giving something back to the communities we operate in.

At HSS, we make a positive difference at the heart of hundreds of communities across the UK and Ireland. Our Head Office in Manchester holds charity and awareness events throughout the year to support local and national charities. This year, we partnered with Forever Manchester, a local organisation that helps local charitable and community projects across Greater Manchester.

Our colleagues took part in the Manchester 10K, Tough Mudder and various fundraising days to raise essential funds. Forever Manchester recognised our efforts in December, nominating HSS for a colleague engagement award. Across our branch network we also offer a 35% discount to registered charities. Although we often waive hire fees entirely to support local charitable projects.

Our colleagues also give up their time to volunteer for community projects. During the summer our central London team joined forces with Canary Wharf Contractors for a ‘Give and Gain’ day at St Matthias Community Centre in Poplar. We helped to tidy up the gardens and clear out some unruly plants and trees. Activities like these help us make a positive impact within the communities we operate in and build even stronger relationships with our customers.

Throughout 2018 we expanded our commitment to upskilling more of our colleagues through our apprenticeship programme. Our traditional apprenticeship opportunities across Operations are still growing strong. However, we also utilised the apprenticeship levy to offer skills training to colleagues in other teams such as Operations, OneCall, Procurement and Head Office. Our colleagues in these different areas developed new skills whilst in full-time employment.

We’re very proud to have made positive progress towards our Corporate Social Responsibility commitments in 2018. And we’ve key action plans in place to build on this momentum throughout 2019.

Reflecting our communities

We recognise the importance of having a workforce that represents the diverse communities we operate in.

We’re very proud to offer people with the right skillset, drive and attitude – the opportunity to grow their skills and develop their careers here at HSS. Not only does our inclusive culture support people in our community, we benefit from having a team that has a wide range of skills, ideas and experiences. Which is why we work closely with a number of organisations across the UK and Ireland to attract and retain the best talent.

Pennies from Heaven

Many of our colleagues choose to support charities through signing up to Pennies from Heaven. We were proud to receive a Platinum  Award from Pennies from Heaven in 2018 due to the high percentage of our colleagues who donate through their pay each month.

“Playing our part to help charitable causes across the UK and Ireland is incredibly important to us at HSS Hire Group, so we are delighted to receive the Platinum  Award this year. Pennies from Heaven represents a no fuss way for our colleagues to give back, and we’re incredibly proud that more colleagues than ever have chosen to take part and do their bit to help some important charities. We are committed to making a positive impact in all the communities we work in, and the Pennies from Heaven initiative plays a key part in this. We look forward to raising even more money over the next year!” Chris Jones, Reward.
