Customised Training and Bespoke Recruitment Packages

At Learning Partnerships, we have access to large numbers of people in the inner-city areas who are actively looking for work.

As a result, we have experience of not only training and upskilling candidates and matching them to suitable job opportunities but of also working in partnership with employers to create customised training packages that precisely meet the requirements of the job.

Our bespoke recruitment service manages expectations of the jobs available with prospective employees which in turn improves staff retention and ultimately ensures you have the right person for the right job. It enables candidates to hit the ground running in their new role.

The benefits of working with Learning Partnerships include:

Social Value / Responsibility

Supporting our charity can in turn help your company to fulfil its corporate social responsibility policy and help your business in a variety of ways. Investing in CSR will help you to; manage risk, recruit employees, save money, generate a positive social and environmental impact, strengthen your company’s brand and reputation, and ultimately help society at large.Doing good is good for business! It has been reported that 70% of consumers would spend more money with businesses that support causes. The notion of ‘giving back’ is a strong and potentially profitable consideration for companies to adopt in relation to increased company sales.

Employee Morale

Financial donations allow companies to actively take an interest in their own communities and can in turn boost employee and team morale as well as enhance staff retention. If a company chooses to make a corporate donation, workplace culture can improve with increased employee involvement and a positive general attitude. According to a 2016 Deloitte study on volunteering, millennials were “twice as likely to rate their corporate culture as very positive” if their company participated in workplace volunteer activities. Desirable and ethical employees respect companies that care for their community – it simply makes employees feel good, it increases the emotional attachment to their employer and increases the organisation’s credibility.

It’s Good for Your Community

Donating to charities can help change your business and work culture. It can also have a dramatic impact on others.

Donating to Learning Partnerships will help improve the Leeds inner- city areas for people and for communities, making them better places to live and empowering people. The public will notice if an organisation chooses to help these areas. Your company’s charitable donations can help Learning Partnerships in a number of ways.

Tax Deduction

This is one of the most immediate benefits of corporate donations. You may not instantly see how your contribution benefits your community, but you will quickly notice the tax savings. Of course, businesses shouldn’t donate with the sole expectation of financial gain, but there are fiscal rewards for helping a charity like Learning Partnerships. Businesses can usually receive tax deductions from sponsoring charities or events, but you should make sure to follow the rules and go about the process in the right way in order to comply with all tax requirements.

Increased Marketing

Philanthropic businesses are some of the most powerful in the world. Charitable sponsorship is a great way to do good in the community, while also gaining more marketing exposure. Donations can put your company’s name out there, especially if you sponsor some kind of programme or event. This will also help to show your current and future clients that you really care about your business and your surrounding area and help improve your customer / client engagement and stakeholder relationships. Investing in CSR can help differentiate you from your competitors.
