The Importance of the HEGS CSR Program

The Importance of the HEGS CSR Program

We believe that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Programs are the cornerstone for building long-term business success. A commitment to help the community builds a strong workplace culture - the key to success. HEGS strives to give back the local community by working with and supporting the St Vincent de Paul Society and Mobilong. 

 

St Vincent de Paul Society

The St Vincent de Paul Society is committed to actively and passionately speaking out against the causes of poverty and inequality on behalf of the people they serve. Housing is a human right, but on any given night in Australia more than 105, 000 people are homeless. In recent years we have seen a rise in the number of people living in inappropriate housing. For example, members of the St Vincent de Paul Society have seen evidence of overcrowded dwellings among many of the families they visit. We are deeply saddened that a wealthy country like Australia still has such high levels of homelessness.

 

Mobilong

The partnership between HEGS and Mobilong is aimed at providing employment for people in Mobilong, including those who are either through age or other reasons cannot physically undertake strenuous duties that may have traditionally formed part of Prison Industries. From this employment HEGS hopes that these people get the skills and knowledge required, along with the dignity that work can provide and give them. It is hoped that they have the aspiration and opportunity to find work upon their release in the community and make a positive contribution to society.
