Aurion Learning Makes it on to Responsibility Shortlist

17 May, 2012

Aurion Learning is very pleased to have made it onto Business in the Community’s shortlist for its 2012 Regional Impact Awards for corporate responsibility. 

This is the second time that Aurion Learning has been shortlisted in the Most Responsible Small Business category which is sponsored by Electric Ireland.

The winner will be announced at the Gala Awards Dinner at Titanic Belfast on 31 May 2012.

Speaking about the awards, Ciaran O’Hare, Director at Aurion Learning said:
“We’d like to thank all our staff for the supporting us in becoming a more responsible business.  CSR is firmly embedded in our organisational culture and our strategic CSR policy focuses on how we can improve and enhance the experiences of our employees, customers, stakeholders, community and our planet.

We hope that by being shortlisted for the 2012 Regional Impact Awards we can encourage other businesses to adopt a responsible attitude to their business dealings.”

“These awards are about business making a real and tangible difference to the lives of individuals in our society,” explains Paul Rooney, Chair of Business in the Community. “If ever there was a time that this needed to happen, it is now. These awards are not easily won. They are rigorous and robust and every company, whether shortlisted or a winner, should be proud of its achievement.

Susan Kinane, Managing Director of Key Award sponsors, Electric Ireland commented: " I am amazed by the work being done across Northern Ireland by all types of businesses – those going the extra mile to do a good deed, give of their services on a probono basis, allocate time for employee volunteering and make sure their employees feel engaged and involved in their business. I look forward to meeting the winners at the Gala Dinner in May in Titanic Belfast.”

Five Northern Ireland winners of Business in the Community’s UK Big Tick Awards will also be recognised at the gala event in Belfast this June.
