Proud Member of the Good Business Charter

Building Bridges with the Good Business Charter

Here at Atlas Translations, we’re passionate about demonstrating our inclusive attitude and forward-thinking outlook in everything we do. From being a Mindful Employer to creating the St. Albans Bra Bank, our progressive business practices are part and parcel of who we are. That’s why we’re delighted to achieve accreditation with the Good Business Charter. This exciting certification recognises responsible business behaviour and good practice in a wide range of areas. Read on to find out more about what this accreditation means for us.

What is the Good Business Charter?

Achieving accreditation with the Good Business Charter recognises that a business has demonstrated positive practices in ten key components: real living wage, fairer hours and contracts, employee well-being, employee representation, diversity and inclusion, environmental responsibility, paying fair tax, commitment to customers, ethical sourcing, and prompt payment.

Unlike some other certifications, the Good Business Charter requires an organisation to show responsible behaviour in all ten of its measured components before they are awarded accreditation. That means that GBC accreditation illustrates clear forward-looking conduct across the board.

Promoting a Progressive Environment

Attaining GBC certification forms part of our larger ethos, which helps us to ensure positive practices throughout our work. Other ways we’ve demonstrated responsible behaviour include being recognised as a Living Wage employer and promoting accessible practices through the Disability Confident Committed program. 

In 2019, we implemented a 4-day working week for our staff, with official accreditation from the 4-day week campaign. We’ve also shown our commitment to positive and open conversations about mental health through the Mindful Employer scheme.

Growing with the Good Business Charter

We think that the Good Business Charter is a fantastic way to express our commitment to positive and sustainable practices in all areas of our work. From client outreach to internal inclusivity, achieving GBC accreditation is a testament to the friendly and innovative working environment we strive to maintain.

We’re excited to continue to display valuable practices through all of our work at Atlas Translations.
