Delta Foundation raised an additional £15,235 for charity in 2017

Posted on 23rd January 2018

In attempt to encourage employees to take their Statutory annual leave entitlement, Delta Balustrades decided to stop paying staff for ‘untaken’ holidays at the end of 2016. However, in some cases, especially where the allowance exceeds the statutory minimum, we still get staff not taking all their holidays.

This year we have introduced a new scheme under the Delta Foundation, whereby any unused annual leave allowance is valued, and the sum collated to form a pot of money which can then be given to charity.

The Delta Foundation is a fund set up by Delta Balustrades, Founder and Managing Director, Stephen Boyt, at the start of 2017.

Donations are made throughout the year to several charities, such as Cancer Research UKAlzheimer’s SocietyRonald McDonald House CharitiesBuilding Heroes and many more.

The Foundation believe heavily in supporting staff through difficult times, such as long-term illness, by contributing some unused holidays towards an employee’s recovery period.

“We encourage staff to take their full holiday allowance and there are sometimes instances where all the allocation is not required and it is a great ‘win-win’ situation when we can donate that amount to charity.”

Another way we contribute to the Delta Foundation fund is by donating £5 for every returned Customer Satisfaction Survey (NPS) from our customers. In 2017 we had 1,447 replies generating £7,235 towards the Foundation, alongside unused holidays contributing over £8,000.

This helps solidify our WHY – ‘We get satisfaction from helping people succeed’.
