Checkprint, part of the TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions, has joined a community initiative that will provide its employees with local volunteering opportunities. The company has signed up as a member of Leicestershire Cares, the not-for-profit organisation that helps businesses to find placements.
As part of the relationship, the Hinckley-based firm will contribute to a number of community programmes across Leicestershire and Rutland. This includes eight employees from Checkprint delivering weekly lessons to Year 3 & 4 pupils from Battling Brook Primary School, where the team aims to make maths magic and put smiles into sums!
So far, the Checkprint team has also conducted reading lessons for 11 to 14 year olds, and has signed up to provide training sessions on interview techniques to help school leavers find work.
Mark Temple, Key Account Manager at Checkprint, is leading the initiative on behalf of the company. He said: “Despite working with clients across the world, Checkprint is proud to have it roots firmly embedded in Leicestershire, and that is why we wanted to give something back. Leicestershire Cares is a fantastic organisation that provides excellent opportunities for local businesses to make a real difference, and we are looking forward to the year ahead.”
Joanne Hudson, Membership Coordinator at Leicestershire Cares, added: “Checkprint has embraced its Leicestershire Cares membership and has made a flying start to fulfilling its social responsibility aims in Hinckley and the surrounding around. It’s great to work with a business where so many staff are involved as this brings a greater depth and meaning to the work that we deliver.”
