Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

Delivering the best service for our clients isn’t the only thing that motivates us to be better. We want to target excellence in as many areas as possible, and this means going beyond what we offer as chartered accountants.

We’re talking about things like the impact we have on the local community, the way that we treat our team members and the legacy that our business leaves on the planet.

What We’re Focusing On:

Community

We are lucky enough to be a part of a great local community, so it only seems natural to want to do what we can to support it. Through our partnership with the Essex Wildlife Trust, we are determined to contribute to the protection and enhancement of habitats throughout Essex and East London.

The natural environment around us plays an important role in the wellbeing of everyone that lives and works in the local area. The whole team are looking forward to getting more involved with some volunteering activities with the trust and discovering some of the wonderful environment that is on our doorstep!

Read more about our partnership and find out about the fantastic work that the Essex Wildlife Trust do here.

Culture

Our people are without a doubt our greatest asset. The team at Nordens are more than the sum of their parts, and we’re constantly striving to make sure that there is a positive and supportive working environment at the company. Whether it’s regular social events, or our renowned away days, there’s never a dull day in the Nordens offices!

A good work life balance is key to having a happy and high performing team. Our flexible approach to work and generous hybrid arrangements mean that our team are able to work hard AND play hard.

The health of our employees is key. We make sure that everyone who works for us is happy and healthy through offering regular first aid training, private health packages and subsidised eye-tests.

Environment

a business we want to make sure that we are having a positive impact in as many ways that we can.

In addition to our partnership with the Essex Wildlife Trust, we’ve set some changes to the way that we operate to be more environmentally friendly including:

– Installing recycling bins in our offices
– Organising the collection of plastic waste and shredded paper
– Electric vehicle charging points at our South Woodford HQ
– EV salary sacrifice scheme for our employees

Our efforts don’t stop here- we’re determined to keep doing everything that we can to make sure that as a business we’re a force for good in as many ways possible.

Diversity & Inclusion

We firmly believe that having such a diverse team is something worth celebrating. We’re proud to have a mixture of different cultures and neurodiversity’s working together, and we do what we can to ensure everyone feels like they belong at Nordens.
(Info needed on cultural mix)

We like to shout about Neurodiversity because we believe it’s a topic that needs more awareness. Becoming ‘Neurodiversity Champions’ was incredibly meaningful to us as a business and our whole team has undertaken a Neurodiversity CPD course which gave them insight and understanding!

There’s no doubt that the accounting industry has historically been very male-dominant. However, at Nordens we’re not the ordinary, and our team and Executive Board stands out for being over 60% female! We’re proud to have so many inspirational women working with us to make Nordens great.

Diversity At Nordens

TESTIMONIALS

When I first started working with Nordens, I needed to understand how best to structure my business and to put it bluntly, I needed to understand the fundamentals of running and scaling a business. Nordens helped me to get set-up properly, provided me with sturdy foundations to build on, and provided me with ways to manage my cash flow to future proof the business. Nordens have, in all honesty become my partners, I know that I can speak to them about anything and that someone on the team will set me on the right path.
