We at Caroola group are proud of the work we do in our specialist fields of contractor accounting and umbrella payroll. But, we are also made up of diverse people with a wide variety of interests and abilities, and we want to do more than the bare minimum.
We developed the Caroola Cares platform to enable us as employees to thrive (as individuals and within the team) and do our bit for ourselves, others in the company, and the outside world.
As an added bonus, from a business perspective, Caroola Cares also sets us apart from the competition, as it allows us to demonstrate our integrity and develop trust with our clients, employees, suppliers, communities and colleagues.
Caroola Cares can be divided into four categories:
Our flexible working approach, which enables our employees to adapt their hours and location to suit their schedules.
Our dedicated team
Our People team includes dedicated equality, diversity and inclusion officers who support employees and provide initiatives that recognise and celebrate diversity within our team.
Both of our offices meet accessibility standards, so anybody who thrives in an office environment can get there and work there.
Every year, we partner with different team-chosen charities, and we encourage our employees to take part in regular fundraising events throughout the year. We are very proud of our track record in charitable giving, with previous contributions including:
Donating over £10,000
We regularly donate to the NHS, children’s charities and the Samaritans, and have contributed over £10,000 to these institutions so far.
Through The Turing Trust, we have been able to give staff and students in African schools access to essential technology.
Every year, our staff choose charities and take part in events to raise money for them. In 2023 we raised almost £1000 for The Trussell Trust.
