Escalate in the Community
Adding value and supporting local communities
Escalate in the Community is a valuable extension to our award winning Escalate training and development initiative. Through our Client and Community Ambassadors, we develop community support activities and events around each project we undertake.
Each support programme, named the ‘Cruden Pledge’ features a range of commitments, designed and tailored around the needs of local stakeholders. Delivery involves extensive collaboration and support from a host of agencies and bodies, coordinated and managed by Cruden’s in-house team.
We further support each programme by providing employees with five volunteering days to enable their fullest participation.
In recognition of the significant contribution Escalate in the Community has delivered for clients, charities and community stakeholders and following a campaign to find Britain’s most caring companies, we were selected as the 2015 best SME for CSR in the building and construction sector, receiving the Gold Standard at The International CSR Awards.
Our pledge extends to maintaining and extending Escalate in the Community in the years ahead so that it supports positive and sustainable change in the communities in which we work.
