Our responsibility to the community extends from our local communities to national and international causes which are close to our hearts. We work with our government and membership customers to ensure that as an SME we do everything we can to be not only accountable and sustainable, but to lead the way for others in areas such as accessibility and apprenticeship training.
For every Christmas card given out by Invotra this year, we have donated £1 to Guide Dogs. We are extremely proud to be supporting a charity that changes the lives of so many people each and every day.
With our dedication to accessibility in mind, it made perfect sense for all of us here at Invotra that when choosing a charity to donate to this year, the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association was a great choice.
We were delighted to offer our professional services to the Communications and Public Service Lifeboat Fund. We agreed to host the website and get involved in improving its functionality. We also formed a project group with interested parties including the charity, Home Office and Ministry of Defence.
Our work has included improving the design and functionality of the website, cleaning up the existing content and offering new applications and better functionality including social collaboration and two-way communication.
Here at Invotra, accessibility is a hugely important part of what we do.
We recently launched our enABLE lab, an environment in which we are able to provide our workforce (and any other interested parties) an environment in which we can continue to align and educate ourselves on the importance of accessibility.
The lab is part of our ongoing work to raise awareness and improve the experiences of accessible software users.
Apprenticeships are at the very heart of Invotra – half of our employees are current or former apprentices and 60% of our Senior Management team are current or former apprentices!
We know what we’re doing when it comes to offering apprenticeships too – we have been listed as a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer, and in 2019 we were named SME Employer of the Year at the National Apprenticeship Awards.
Cancer is the toughest fight most people will ever face. And as treatments improve, more and more people are living with cancer in their daily lives. The money raised at the coffee morning will help make sure no one has to face cancer alone, from the moment they’re diagnosed, through treatment and beyond.
This is why our Macmillan Coffee Mornings are such an important part of our yearly calendar. The coffee morning provides us with an opportunity to raise money and awareness for a worthy cause (and find out who is the best baker along the way!).
Here at Invotra, not only do we lead the field as a SaaS provider, but as of Sunday, several of our team succeeded in proving their capabilities in a challenge to their own physical resilience. Lead by none other than our very own Chelsea Cadd (DevOps and Security analyst), our resident athletes took to the Tough Mudder course and over the span of several hours crawled and climbed their way to the finish line.
