JM Security Systems joins the Good Business Charter

JM Security Systems is delighted to announce it has joined companies such as London City Airport and Capita in signing up to the Good Business Charter (GBC), an accreditation that seeks to raise the bar on business practices for employees, tax, the environment, customers and suppliers.

JM Security Systems is proud to be the first in the security sector to join GBC, in February 2020. It has never been more important for businesses to regain trust and show they care about than just profit.

The Good Business Charter exists for all companies and charities with 10 employees or more across all industries and sectors and works through a simple online self-certification process.  At a time when people are caring more about who they work for and who they buy from, the Good Business Charter offers a straightforward accreditation which recognises organisations which prioritise and care for their employees, the environment, customers and suppliers, whilst also paying their taxes according to the spirit of the law. The GBC and its members seek to inspire many other businesses to follow suit.

The Good Business Charter has the support of both the CBI and the TUC which both have trustee representation on its board. Other partners of the GBC include the Living Wage Foundation (of which we are a member) and the Prompt Payment Code. The GBC has been set up by a charity called the Good Business Foundation and accreditation will be free for all companies in the first year.

Chairman of the GBC board, Simon Fox, said:

The Good Business Charter brings together 10 standards, most of which already exist, but in separate places. We have bought them together to give a coherent overall position for businesses to aspire to. We believe that the GBC has enormous potential to change business practice for good. We hope that because of its simplicity and cost effectiveness, it will quickly gain support.”

 

Managing Director of JM Security Systems, said:

“We are delighted to be one of the first businesses to be accredited to GBC, so that we can continue our ethos of being a company that treats its staff, customers, supplies and community fairly. 

This accreditation will enable us to continually check our processes so that we can ensure we are always striving to be a responsible business.”
