Perfect Circle renews commitment to Social Value UK
Perfect Circle has reconfirmed its position as a Social Value Pioneer with Social Value UK (SVUK) for the second year running.
Defined as: ‘an approach [to construction] that focuses on delivering added value beyond the financial to communities and local areas in which projects are taking shape’, it is considered to be of paramount importance within the entire industry.
Social value is an integral part of Perfect Circle’s approach and operations – forming part of everything the consultancy does. As such, Perfect Circle is proud to support SVUK’s work, further educating staff, external stakeholders and supply chain partners of its importance.
As a Social Value Pioneer, Perfect Circle joins more than 50 national and international firms that ‘share a commitment to social value’.
Victoria Brambini, managing director at Perfect Circle, said: “Through our membership, Perfect Circle will continue to receive guidance and support from SVUK through mentoring schemes, workshops and bespoke training. We also have a dedicated team of ambassadors who are looking to really make a change in the industry.”
SVUK is ‘the national network for social impact and social value’. The industry-accredited body works to ‘change the way society accounts for value’, working with members to ‘increase the accounting, measuring and managing of social value from the perspective of those affected by an organisation’s activities, through our Social Value Principles’.
Victoria continued: “We have been a member of SVUK for two years now, so are delighted to reconfirm our commitment to delivering real social value across our schemes delivered nationally through Scape Group’s Built Environment Consultancy Services (BECS) framework.
“We have a responsibility to the environment, the communities within which we work, our own people, our supply chain and society as a whole. We’re committed to maximising the positive impact of what we do and strive for continual improvement. These are the values SVUK also upholds.
“Our vision is to be at the forefront of innovation, pioneering new ways of working to deliver collaborative and efficient solutions across the public sector; making a difference to clients, communities, employees and supply chain partners. SVUK can certainly help us with this, so we look forward to continuing to work together.”
