Northamptonshire membership organisation NNBN is supporting the Good Business Charter’s message this week of ethical business practices as part of Good Business Week.
The national campaign runs from Monday 5th February to Sunday 11th February, with a focus on placing organisations that adhere to the best business practices in the spotlight. The Good Business Charter, the driving force behind the campaign, aims to make exemplary behaviour and ethical practices the standard for businesses across the UK.
The Good Business Charter encourages the UK community to share instances of positive business practices, nominate employers eligible for Good Business Charter accreditation, and raise awareness about the significance of #GoodBusinessMatters through social media.
The campaign has designated themes for each day with topics including fair pay, prompt payment, wellbeing, customers and beyond profit, all values which are supported by the Northamptonshire membership organisation and critical for any business, charity or organisation for the long term future.
The Good Business Charter serves as an accreditation programme that evaluates responsible business conduct across ten components, encompassing care for employees, customers, suppliers, society, and the environment. This accreditation is accessible to businesses of all sizes and sectors, as well as public sector and third-sector organisations.
NNBN Director Simon Cox said “We are proud to be a Good Business Charter accredited organisation and would encourage local businesses, charities and organisations to sign up and become accredited.”
“We are also proud to have signed the Prompt Payment Code showing our commitment to our suppliers and those we work with to pay our suppliers on time and within agreed terms. Late payments cause a number of problems for small businesses and it’s key that we continue reminding businesses, charities and organisations that late payments can cause problems to suppliers in the supply chain.”
