Our community

Our commitment to the community is important to us and we always try to play an active role. Whether that’s creating opportunities for employment, apprenticeships for young people or raising funds for local charities, we are keen to play our part.

What we believe

BITC

Positive Contributor

From the outset, we wanted to create a business that is a positive contributor to the environment and to society itself through the reuse of recovered products reducing demand on precious resources such as rare earth metals, manufacturing and landfill but we also wanted to make it sustainable so that our legacy will continue for generations. Delivering our vision, we believe that we will make a difference to planet earth, the people that work for us and for our clients.

Our People

Our People

We are extremely proud of the people that work for us and we are very keen to understand and expand their skill set so they can continue to develop themselves to support our business growth. Our training and development covers many angles from product training through to personal development. We actively encourage internal promotion to retain the best talent but we also recognise the importance of bringing in new talent so our company continues to challenge itself.

Kingston Business Awards

Our Commitment

We are passionate about playing an active role in our community. From setting up apprenticeship schemes, employing local people through to collecting for the local food banks, we want to do our bit. We also take part in numerous events with our charity partners. To date we have participated in over 50 events and raised in excess £250K! We couldn’t be more proud to have received the Kingston Business Excellence Awards Commitment to the Community award.

How we contribute

Xmas Visits

Xmas Visit by GSUK

Three years ago GSUK created a programme where money donated by our teams would be used to purchase gifts for children unfortunate enough to be in hospital during Christmas. Each year, members of the team visit local hospitals to present the gifts to the children.

NUTS Challenge

NUTS challenge

In September 2015, a brave team of individuals from GSUK took part in the Nuts Challenge raising money for Scope about disability charity– a 7km assault course adventure race complete with 100 challenging obstacles with mud and water thrown in for good measure!

BUPA 10km

BUPA 10KM Run

In May 2015, a team from Genuine Solutions took part in the London BUPA 10km run to raise funds for Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity who help support families with a seriously ill child. The event proved successful with much needed donations being raised for Rainbow Trust.

Recyclewise - Charity Recycling

GSUK has set up mobile recycling / take back schemes for use by charities on a non-profit basis to raise funds from the value generated by recycling handsets received from their supporters.

By using our environmentally aware proven processes, GSUK is able to return on average more than 70% of the handset’s value back to the charities. The charities benefit from a fully managed service including; account handling, full marketing support in the form of collateral, provision of tote boxes to support handset collections from their corporate supporters.

Recyclewise

The Scheme

The take-back scheme is a fully working operation that collects, refurbishes and redistributes old and damaged mobile phone handsets. The money raised through the redistribution of these handsets provides charities with much needed, regular donations, helping them to carry on the good work they do on a daily basis.

The scheme is available to any charitable organisation, allowing them to offer their supporters and the wider community a chance to donate by handing in old mobile phones. In the UK alone there are an estimated 90 million handsets lying broken or unused in drawers and cupboards. The publicity and ease of schemes available to recycle mobile phones has made it a popular way to raise funds.

The scheme offers a sustainable source of fundraising and one that is fully managed from start to finish. The ease of implementation allows supporters the chance to donate without putting their hands in their pockets each time they do so.

The recycling of mobile phones also has a huge benefit to the environment, preventing handsets from going to landfill and re-use reduces the demand for the manufacture of new units, which reduces the consumption of resources and factory emissions.
