Corporate Social Responsibility
at the core of everything we do
Learning and Development
At World Options we believe in nurturing our future workforce and helping them be the best that they can be. We work with local colleges, offering career opportunities to young graduates looking to start their careers through work-based training. World Options have recently employed a number of graduates through this initiative.
We help our employees improve their skills by providing them the resources to undertake additional learning. We actively encourage them to enrol in learning programmes in order to gain qualifications so that they can achieve a higher level of qualification, be better at their jobs and progress up the career ladder.
Communication & Flexibility
Changes and developments within the business are communicated to employees with complete transparency. We treat all employees with respect and understanding, and all management and directors have an open-door policy, welcoming shared ideas and opinions from employees.
We provide understanding and flexibility for working parents who require flexible working hours, as well as additional time to look after their families.
Recognition and Social
We recognise and award hard-working employees with regular monthly awards and presentations to individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
We encourage corporate development by arranging team building activities throughout the year to bring together different departments, revive team spirit, improve productivity and give employees renewed focus and motivation.
In addition to this we organise a number of social events throughout the year where employees can get to know each other in a relaxed social environment outside of the workplace. We strongly believe this improves working relationships and productivity.
Although World Options provides an online shipping service, we don’t physically ship customers' items ourselves. Our partner carriers, who are world leading, are responsible for the transportation of goods. They are committed to helping reduce the environmental damage that greenhouse gas emissions produce from delivering customers’ goods by road, air and sea.
Communities & Charity
World Options is involved in fundraising events throughout the year and we very much believe in supporting local charities. We sponsor fundraising events and local football teams to help build our roots … and we are always willing to hear about other charitable events which we can participate in.
