By definition, a building society is collectively owned and run for the benefit of its customers and we are proud that Hanley Economic is still located in the community in which it was founded in 1854 and that we continue to support the communities in which our customers live and work.
For many years we have given strong support to the local community and have many examples of the work we do including:
- Sponsorship of the Potters ‘Arf Marathon
- Fundraising partnerships with four local charities – See our Charity Corporate Policy HERE.
- Customer engagement via Customer Forums
Throughout the year our head office and branch network staff support various other good causes, both through fundraising and volunteering. Community related activities are a significant part of Hanley Economic. Community is important to us we have made a commitment to our staff to allow them four days paid leave per year for local volunteering work.
We are a responsible employer and develop in full recognition that the way we do business has a wider impact on our local community. To this end we are proud to announce and introduce you to our community strategy for 2018/19.
