GBC Accredited

We are pleased to announce that Mediascape has recently achieved accreditation with the Good Business Charter! This simple accreditation, open to UK businesses and organisations of all sizes, recognises responsible business behaviour across ten key components.
We feel that it is important to be accountable in how we do business, and by gaining accreditation, we are demonstrating our commitment to our staff, suppliers, customers, and the environment.

How Mediascape Commits to the 10 Components of the GBC

  1. Real Living Wage: We are a Living Wage Employer who pays directly employed staff and regular contracted staff the regular living wage.
  2. Fairer Hours and Contracts: We commit to a fair approach to zero or minimal hours contracts, including giving at least two weeks’ notice for scheduling shifts and still paying shifts cancelled at less than two weeks’ notice. We commit to giving proper consideration to providing contracts with guaranteed hours. Both of the above are necessary unless requested otherwise by the employee of their own free will.
  3. Employee Well-being: We will have clear, fair and transparent policies that support and encourage employee well-being and ban unreasonable penalties for legitimate sickness.
  4. Employee Representation: We will engage with worker representatives and ensure there is a voice that represents employees around the boardroom table.
  5. Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion: We will commit time and money to creating an inclusive workplace. We will monitor the diversity of our workforce, commit to closing the gender, disability, and ethnicity pay gaps and narrowing the CEO/worker pay gap.
  6. Environmental Responsibility: We care about the environment and have an environmental policy demonstrating our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance.
  7. Pay Fair Tax: We commit to paying our taxes, not engaging in tax avoidance and being transparent in our relationship with HMRC.
  8. Commitment to Customers: We recognise our commitment to our customers. We publish this commitment on our website and gather and monitor customer feedback, reporting to the board and addressing concerns.
  9. Ethical Sourcing: We commit to the standards set out in the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code where relevant to our organisation.
  10. Prompt Payment to Suppliers: We are signatories of the government’s Prompt Payment Code.
Niall MacDonald, the Managing Director of Mediascape, expresses his delight at achieving GBC accreditation:
“As an employee-owned company, Mediascape takes pride in our commitment to the 10 components of the Good Business Charter. We believe that empowering our employees to actively participate in decision-making and sharing in the company’s success not only fosters a strong sense of ownership but also drives innovation and excellence in the audio-visual solutions we provide. Together, we are shaping a brighter future, where collaboration, integrity, and social responsibility are at the heart of everything we do.”
The GBC accreditation serves as a testament to our commitment to our employees, customers, suppliers, and the wider community, as we strive to make a positive impact and contribute to a sustainable and inclusive future for all.
