Mitchell Group adopts a long-term approach to enhancing and enriching the communities in which it operates.
We believe in active participation in the wider community as individuals and as a company. We seek to involve our people in community engagement activities that make a positive difference to the communities where we live and work, by utilising our full breadth of knowledge and resources. Our community engagement initiatives provide access to volunteer support; mentoring and sponsorship.
Volunteer Support is the main activity that the Mitchell Group engage in. It is one of the simplest ways to connect with and “give back” to our communities. Mitchell group offer all employees paid volunteer leave per year and flexible working arrangements to make a difference in their communities.
The Mitchell Group has a very focussed corporate giving program. As limited resources are allocated, only proposals that deliver commercial or community benefits that align with the direction of our business are progressed to evaluation.
