deVere wins Corporate Responsibility Award 2016

deVere Group is to receive Investor Review’s Corporate Responsibility Award 2016, it has been announced today.

The prestigious award is in recognition of the hard work, time and resources deVere Group’s teams across the world put in to serve and improve the communities in which they operate.

As the crystal trophies are dispatched to deVere offices, Jonathan Miles, Editor in Chief, comments: “Here at Investor Review, we want to highlight a spread of the corporate world’s best at all levels when it comes to the realm of corporate social responsibility (CSR)".

“Our team has been pouring over firms from all around the world, from investors to retailers, banks to consultants, looking at business ethics, community involvement, charitable contributions, moral investments and responsible operations”.

“Our readers span the globe, and we’d like to give them a look at some of the stand-out firms who excel in the arena – CSR is becoming more and more important as the information age makes it ever-easier for clients and the public to factor a firm’s social footprint into their judgements. As a leader in this field, this award for deVere Group is our recognition of that”.

Speaking of the award, deVere Group founder and CEO, Nigel Green, says: “The huge efforts of our people around the world in making the lives of those less fortunate than themselves a little better have not only been recognised, but celebrated.  This award is a massive tribute to everyone within our organisation who has organised, participated in, or donated to, any of the countless charitable causes that have been supported by us”.

He continues: “As has been the case in most major organisations in all sectors, CSR has been playing an increasingly integral role at deVere in the last few years. It is a trend that I see gaining momentum too”.

“Besides the noble philanthropic reasons which are at the core of what we do in terms of CSR, it also helps attract and retain clients (according to research, 55 per cent of consumers are willing to pay more for products from socially responsible companies), it boosts teams’ engagement, it generates positive media coverage, and generally enhances public image and perception”.

Mr Green concludes: “Congratulations to everyone in deVere.  I am confident this will inspire us all to contribute to even more to life-enhancing projects around the world”.
