Our employees are actively involved in individual and team Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
We are also setting up an employee volunteering programme to support the local communities around our Edinburgh and London offices. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is important to Multrees and it's an excellent way to build enthusiasm, motivation and teamwork.
“At Multrees, we encourage employees to participate in social activities that make a positive impact in their local and wider communities. CSR policies are close to our hearts and are embedded throughout our business culture.”
At the end of 2016, Multrees was designated as a Cycle Friendly Employer by Cycling Scotland. The award recognises the work that has taken place to encourage our staff to make more environmentally friendly and health-conscious travel choices.
Wendy Graham, Edinburgh’s Cycle Friendly Employer co-ordinator, said “Staff at Multrees Investor Services are fully supported and encouraged to cycle to work with secure cycle parking; shower and changing facilities; and a business mileage rate for cyclists, alongside other pro-cycling facilities, services and policies. As such we are proud to formally honour the effort and hard work which has gone in to cycle promotion at Multrees Investor Services, with the nationally recognised Cycle Friendly Employer Award”.
Clive Stelfox, Chief Operating Officer at Multrees, said “At Multrees, we look for ways to encourage the wellbeing of our employees and, therefore, are very keen to support them in implementing a sustainable travel plan. As a responsible employer, Multrees welcomes this award as it acknowledges our ongoing commitment to reducing business mileage and our environmental impact.”
We have a number of employees that are active cyclists. So much so, that a group of them has volunteered to participate in Scotland’s biggest bike event, Pedal for Scotland, on September 10th. A company blog will follow covering our progress! This hyperlink provides details of the event: http://pedalforscotland.org/
For the second-year running, in May 2017 we were pleased to sponsor a table at The Prince’s Trust Financial Lunch at Edinburgh’s Assembly Rooms. The Prince’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for disadvantaged young people.
Daljit Singh, Senior Head of Private Sector Relationships, Prince’s Trust Scotland, said:
“This year’s Financial Lunch was another great success raising £31,941 in aid of the Prince’s Trust Scotland. Last year, The Prince’s Trust celebrated its 40th anniversary and this year we will help over 10,000 marginalised young people in Scotland to get into education, jobs and business. Our wide range of programmes means that we can support young people at every stage of their journey.
"With the support of companies like Multrees Investor Services, who hosted a table of guests again at this year’s fundraising event, the Trust can continue to help young people achieve their full potential and a brighter future.”

On 5 July 2017, our London office took part in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. This event is part of a world-wide series of 3.5 mile (5.6km) road races, which take place in seven countries. This was the 11th year of the London race and the first year in which we participated.
The aims of the Corporate Challenge are to promote health and fitness in the workplace, improve employee relationships, as well as supporting the local community. The beneficiary of this years’ event is Cancer Research UK, which funds scientists, doctors and nurses in order to help beat cancer sooner. The charity is the world’s largest independent funder into cancer research and its work has led to major advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
