Freedom Media has been awarded The Jersey Good Business Charter, a prestigious standard for corporate citizenship in the island’s business sector.
A full-service marketing and creative agency, Freedom Media was assessed by a council of 13 local senior business experts against the five areas of the Charter: environment, people, suppliers, community and customers.
The agency was unanimously awarded Charter Status, one of just four Jersey businesses given the accolade so far, for its efforts to contribute meaningfully to the local community through good business practice. This includes regular donations and discounted work for a range of Jersey charities, as well as advising on important environmental initiatives with EcoActive and the Jersey National Park.
The Charter also assesses how member businesses apply good practice in dealing with customers, suppliers and staff.
Stuart Stables, Commercial Director at Freedom Media, received the certificate from Good Business Council member, Carla Benest, at a recent meeting of the Charter.
He said: “The values promoted by The Jersey Good Business Charter closely align with Freedom Media’s long-held desires and efforts to do business in a good way, based on positive values and integrity. Our ethos has been summarised on our website in the following terms: Value people. Do good. Be exceptional. Be genuine. Love work. Signing up to the Jersey Good Business Charter provides a structured framework and a defined course of action for us to continue on this journey, enhancing the excellent quality and range of work that we do for the benefit of all of our stakeholders.”
The Charter, a Jersey charity which was launched in November last year, currently has over 50 businesses from 13 different sectors who are at some stage of the application process and waiting to be assessed by the Good Business Council.
