ETI in the Community

We want our customers to continue to think of ETI as a business that puts something back into the community and within our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy, we have created a project called ‘ETI in the Community’.

Our intention is to work together with Eco-friendly projects, educational work experience placements and a sharing of career prospects and temperature related, energy saving principles.

Social Responsibility:

ETI recognises the need to support the local community, from where we gain over 95% of our employees.

“ETI in the Community” is the specific medium through which we offer support for local events and sponsorship.

Although there is no intended distinction/preference with regard to support, favourable consideration will be given towards:-

  • Organisations that support and encourage youth development
  • Charities that assist the elderly/disabled
  • School work-experience placements
  • Educational exhibitions
Whilst we will support our local Chamber of Commerce in any charity that they consider to be worthwhile, ETI Directors will decide on a nominated charity which will be supported by the company for a period of three years before review.  We are delighted to announce that we have chosen Guild Care as our chosen charity to support and raise funds for.

Guild Care

We are delighted to announce that we have chosen Guild Care as our chosen charity to support and raise funds for.

Guild Care has been making a difference to the lives of the people of Worthing and its surrounding areas since it was first established in 1933 by a small team of volunteers.

Today the charity runs three care homes and over 30 community services helping over 3,000 people of all ages each year.

Guild Care has gone from strength to strength, listening to people and adapting over the decades to the needs of the local community of Worthing and its surrounding areas.

Love Your Hospital

For the last five years, ETI staff have helped to raise vital funds for Bluefin Ward, Worthing Hospital during the month of December. In total, ETI staff have raised over £2,500 for the children’s ward thanks to a special fundraising initiative held each year. During a visit in January 2020, a cheque was presented to the ward by ETI employees.

Worthing Schools

Support of local schools is high on our list of social responsibility, and we are pleased to be able to offer Work Experience places to various schools in the area. 

We also enjoy attending local career fairs and similar events aimed at supporting the career decision-making of young people.  These events enable us to promote various career opportunities and apprenticeships at ETI..


STEM and Community Exhibitions

ETI enjoy exhibiting at local events and have participated in the nationwide ‘Big Bang’ programme which celebrates science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for young people and aims to excite and inspire the students.

Environmental Matters

Reducing the impact we have on the environment has been an important part of the way we’ve run our business for many years. In 2018, staff from ETI participated in a Beach Clean event in Worthing, West Sussex.  Over 90 members of staff split into ten groups volunteered to collect rubbish from Worthing beach and seafront between Monday 25th and Friday 29th June 2018.

    

  

Jason Webb, ETI’s Commercial Director commented “The Beach Clean which was organised with the Councils support, was a huge success and we managed to fill 18 bin bags full of rubbish. This was a fantastic opportunity for staff to give back to the community and this initiative fits well with our ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility and Green policies.  Plastic in the oceans is one of the biggest problems facing our environment today and we were pleased to run this campaign in a bid to help raise awareness of the problem.”
