Corporate Responsibility & Social Values

IMS has a commitment to the principles of corporate social responsibility (CSR) which complements our moral obligation to the people we work with and the environment we live and work in.

We are an inclusive organisation committed to promoting equality, diversity, and a culture that actively values difference and recognises that people from diverse backgrounds and experiences can bring valuable insights to the workplace and enhance the way we work. We pro-actively tackle discrimination and disadvantage to ensure that no individual or group is discriminated against for any reason regarding employment or accessing our services.

In addition to our inclusivity principles our CSR forms a philosophy based on safety, quality, and economic performance where we aim to:

  • Minimise our negative impact on the environment
  • Enhance our contribution to social impact
  • Operate in a fair and ethical manner
  • Commit to responsible procurement practices
  • Create personal action plans for our employees to provide them with the knowledge and skills to achieve personal and company aims & objectives
  • Assist our clients with their corporate responsibility programs

Charities We Support

The Literacy Hubs

The Literacy Hubs is an educational charity that helps communities gain the literacy skills they need to thrive. The charity supports young people aged 8-13 in the crucial years between the end of primary and secondary school when progress can slow significantly.

The Literacy Hub’s current focus is supporting the least advantaged communities in Portsmouth. The young people attend two and a half hours of sessions each week for a whole academic year at one of two immersive and exciting hubs: the Pompey Pirates (a pirate themed hub based in The Charles Dickens Ward) and the Portsea Sailors based at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Sessions involve reading support and working on published projects, which provide opportunities for the development of writing skills, confidence, and perseverance.

The St Jerome’s Centre, Kenya

In May 2009 three students, Gemma, Becky, and Ben were doing volunteer work in the town of Nakuru in Kenya. Shocked by the number of homeless kids living on the streets, they decided to build an orphanage.

The St Jerome’s Centre was officially opened in January 2012 and is now a UK registered charity run by a small group of trustees.

Our monthly standing order goes directly to St Jerome’s and contributes towards general running costs and on-going improvements.

We were delighted to receive a video message of thanks from all of the staff and pupils:
