How We Implement One of Our Core Values “Community” at Really Epic Dog Group

At Really Epic Dog Group, community is more than just a core value; it’s a fundamental part of who we are and what we strive to be. We believe that building a strong, supportive community within and outside our company leads to a more fulfilling and impactful work environment. Here’s how we put this value into action.

Empowering Employees to Give Back

One of the key ways we foster a sense of community is by empowering our employees to support the causes they care about. We allocate two hours of every working week for our staff to dedicate their time to a charity or community cause of their choosing. This initiative allows our team members to engage with and contribute to organizations that resonate with them personally, making a meaningful difference in their communities.

Whether it’s volunteering at a local animal shelter, mentoring youth, or participating in environmental clean-up projects, our employees have the freedom and support to get involved in various ways. This approach not only benefits the community but also enriches the lives of our team members by allowing them to pursue their passions and interests outside of work.

Our Annual Charitable Commitment

Every December, we take our commitment to community a step further by choosing three charities to support collectively as a team. This tradition brings us together and strengthens our bonds while making a significant impact. We actively engage with these chosen organizations, contributing our time, resources, and efforts to support their missions.

An Hour For Others

One of the charities we proudly support is An Hour For Others, a grassroots organization based in Liverpool. This incredible charity identifies families who are struggling and provides them with much-needed assistance. Each year, our staff participates in a heartwarming initiative: buying Christmas presents for the children in these families.

The joy of giving and the knowledge that we are making a difference in the lives of those in need during the holiday season is incredibly rewarding. Our involvement with An Hour For Others not only supports the community but also fosters a sense of unity and purpose within our team.

Building a Culture of Compassion

By integrating community support into our work culture, we cultivate an environment where compassion and generosity thrive. Our employees are encouraged to share their volunteering experiences and inspire others to get involved. This culture of giving back is infectious, spreading positivity and creating a ripple effect that extends beyond our immediate team.

Wayne Scholes, our Executive Chairman, often emphasizes the importance of community: “At Really Epic Dog Group, we believe that our success is intertwined with the well-being of the communities we serve. By actively supporting charitable causes and empowering our employees to make a difference, we create a stronger, more connected, and compassionate company.”

The Impact of Our Efforts

The impact of our community-focused initiatives is profound. Not only do we see tangible results in the form of improved lives and strengthened communities, but we also witness the personal growth and fulfillment of our employees. Their stories of volunteering and the relationships they build through these experiences are testaments to the power of giving back.

Looking Forward

As we continue to grow and evolve, our commitment to community remains steadfast. We are constantly exploring new ways to support and engage with the causes that matter to our team and the broader community. Our goal is to create lasting, positive change and to inspire others to join us in this mission.

In conclusion, at Really Epic Dog Group, community is not just a value written on a wall; it is lived and breathed every day through our actions and initiatives. By dedicating time to support charities and fostering a culture of compassion, we aim to make the world a better place, one small act of kindness at a time. We are proud of our team’s dedication to community and look forward to continuing this journey together.
