Corporate Social Responsibility

Lintott intimately understands the environmental, social & ethical aspects of business policy & performance that are critical for the success & reputation of the Company today & in the future. The Company takes an increasingly pioneering approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) & in contributing to the challenges of Sustainable Development. This cascades into a number of aligned programmes. Below is a small sample of initiatives which fall under Lintott's CSR umbrella.

    

People

 

Lintott aims to provide the safest, most challenging & personally rewarding experience possible.  The Corporate Vision to be the 'supplier of choice' can only be realised by fostering a talented, efficient & diligent team, who are focused on delivering outstanding customer service.    

The Company is committed to building a culture that acknowledges & rewards success.  It does this by providing individuals with the independence & responsibility they need to deliver results & to make a real difference.

A true meritocracy, Lintott provides personally tailored career development & training programmes. Championed by the Company's leadership, cultural awareness, individual strengths, experiences & backgrounds are fully respected & valued. Various schemes, such as the quarterly "Outstanding Contribution Award" have been developed which are designed to recognise, reward & stimulate the Company's people-based capital. It’s no accident that the Company has a positivity rate of 88%!

Over the last 5 year period, 10+ apprentices completed an apprenticeship.  In the last 3 years, the number of completed training events has increased at a compound rate of 23%!

The wellbeing of the Company’s workforce is of prime importance. To help achieve this, Lintott has a formalised Wellbeing Policy. To deliver this, the Company’s evolving programme of approaches includes, but is not limited to:-

  • Doing everything possible to ensure the safest working environment. This will be achieved by:-

    - Investigating & implementing best practice & continuous improvement.

    - Consultation & engagement with employees – continually.

    - Regular audits & reviews which specifically target health & well-being.

  • Providing information to inform & educate employees regarding lifestyle choices.
  • Encouraging & helping people to positively change their behaviours which will positively influence their wellbeing.
  • Providing access to expert counselling / consultation if & where applicable.
  • Regularly assessing job design, employee satisfaction & performance.
  • As a matter of management, seeking to assess conditions which can affect wellbeing such as stress & excess working.

    The Community

    Lintott has a range of schemes designed to enhance the community. This includes partnering with academia (example video here), organisations & other businesses. By way of example, Lintott has twice sponsored the University of East Anglia’s Employability Award (Innovation Management & Creativity Category) - picture shown opposite (please click here to be redirected to the Business School's press release).  

    The Company also engages in initiatives designed to promote Engineering & Manufacturing within the community.  Lintott seeks to demonstrate that the Sector provides excellent career opportunities with the chance to learn cutting-edge skills.  In the case of young people, Lintott hopes to help engender the next generation of Engineers & Technicians.

         

    Lintott recognises the benefit & value in harnessing the support & expertise of its employees. To leverage this, the Company has created a Community Engagement Policy. Based on a formal mechanism, the Company provides support & time, which in the latter instance would otherwise have been spent in the workplace. As a result, employees are able to, on a voluntary basis, engage in community & / or charitable initiatives.  In addition to its 9 STEM Ambassadors, since the launch of its formalised Community Engagement Policy in 2015, over 110 community events have taken place.

    From time to time, Lintott also contributes to specified charities.

    The Environment

      

    Lintott is dedicated to preserving & improving the environment. This is achieved through the development & improvement of its ISO 14001 accredited (International Environmental Standard) Business Management System, strategic implementation of the Company's Carbon Policy, & best practice leadership.  One of a host of activities undertaken in this arena includes the direct measurement of the Company’s carbon footprint: Data is collected & reported monthly by the Business Assurance Function. Through a focused programme & the setting of targets & objectives, Lintott has reduced its carbon footprint at a 3-year compound rate of 14%.

    As Process Solutions designer & manufacturer of environmental technologies, enhancing the environment is also achieved through continuous product development & the use of technologies which seek to reduce carbon / environmental impacts.

    Health & Safety

    As a matter of Policy & Strategy, Lintott has a ‘no compromise’ approach to Health & Safety. The Company’s foremost Corporate Value states, “Health, Safety & Well-being are integral to all processes & practices.” At the heart of this is the principle of ‘care for everyone’. Reflecting its strategic importance, the Company has a dedicated Health & Safety webpage. To be redirected please click here.

    Best Practice

    Lintott is increasingly recognised for its unremitting approach to Best Practice & the sharing of the same across stakeholder groupings.

    The Company's integrated & all-embracing Continuous Improvement Programme is championed directly by the Board of Directors, encompassing each & every employee, where & how they operate. Synonymous with this, Lintott is staunchly committed to operating the safest & cleanest work environment possible - both internally & externally. This is delivered with the active participation of key stakeholders & is built on the leadership & the implementation of best practice.

       

    Lintott is committed to being a role model corporate citizen, complying with the Ethical Trading Base Code & upholding the Company’s policy of Responsible Procurement. This is based on the following principles, outlined in the Company's Procurement Policy & the aligned & formalised Procurement Departmental Development Plan:-
