Our aim is to be carbon neutral before the end of 2030. We are looking at the way we operate and dispose of our waste so we can achieve our goal. We are also introducing new initiatives such as Treedom.
In partnership with environmental charity Treedom, 1000 trees will be planted each year by farmers in Tanzania, Ecuador or Madagascar, with the aim of helping Sigma to become carbon neutral while celebrating colleagues who complete their probationary period.
As part of the initiative, new Sigma staff in SA, the UK and Australia will be given a virtual tree to plant in the Sigma Forest. From the nursery to the transplanting and geolocation, the gift recipient of each tree will receive a clear account of the project activities from the beginning and will always be updated on what is achieved thanks to their commitment
With a diverse workforce in three countries, we want to ensure that everyone has a voice in Sigma.
Committed to gender diversity, we strive to provide an environment where women feel understood and respected as professionals and individuals.
Sigma has launched a global company-wide initiative, Sigma Women, which ensures the promotion of gender equality.
Additionally, all employees can make a personal £2 donation direct from their salaries to the nominated Sigma charity which this year is Birmingham Children’s Hospital and any other fundraising events through the year will go to the same chosen charity.
With the school receiving limited funding from government, we were able to aid in their efforts to achieve their educational goals.
Funded by the West Midlands Combined Authority, the programme gives individuals the chance to learn new skills for free and have the opportunity to join Sigma during a period of phenomenal growth.
We have committed to take on 15 new workers between the ages of 16 and 24 for six-month placements within the company's support services and call centre teams, providing training and development.
This programme, in association with Birmingham Metropolitan College, enables people to train on the job.
By helping unemployed men and women with the interview process, and providing suitable clothing, we are able to give them the confidence they need to make a positive first impression.
We have built a lasting relationship and work in collaboration with our Shadow partners to ensure all delegates are fully equipped and embedded in the Sigma culture before they complete their 12-week work readiness programme.
We look forward to welcoming many more Shadow Groups in the future.
