We take our responsibilities seriously

A longstanding commitment to giving back

Wilson James is committed to being a responsible business and giving back to the communities in which we work.

For us responsibility means:

  • Valuing, engaging and rewarding our diverse employees
  • Giving back to the communities in which we work
  • A firm commitment to reducing our impact on the environment.

We recognise that this is vital to being a successful business. We feel we can achieve so much more for the environment, society and communities by working closely with clients, employees, stakeholders, regulators and suppliers.

Our Priorities: People, Planet & Performance

People

Our people are our priority. As a responsible employer: we are committed to paying fair wages, thorough staff training and a strong focus on wellbeing.

Planet

Environmental protection is integral to our position as a responsible business and we seek to minimise energy, water and paper usage, through design, infrastructure and behaviour.

Performance

Doing the right thing is a feature of all our performance objectives. We track and measure our performance with a focus on responsibility and sustainability.
