Corporate Social Responsibility

You are here

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is fundamental to our business and central to our brand values. Our purpose “Improving lives. Improving business” is the foundation of our business strategy, which alongside our vision, guides us in everything we do. We also look to our values that define the way we interact with our clients, each other and our broader stakeholder community. Together, these elements define Morneau Shepell’s way of doing business, drive our strategy, and shape the framework of policies and guidelines, which set the standards for our behaviour, CSR programs and performance.

Contributing to the wellbeing of people is ultimately the purpose driving our business forward, which is: improving lives, improving business. By helping our clients improve the mental, physical, financial and social wellbeing of their employees, we improve workplace engagement and productivity. In this way, we contribute to people’s lives beyond work in a larger sense of improving community wellbeing.

Stephen Liptrap, President and CEO

Becoming Paperless

Reducing paper consumption is a core component of Morneau Shepell’s environmental program. Driven by a strategic business initiative to drive efficiency, we set out to better understand our overall paper consumption, including end use and the role of printers. While there is more work to be done, our shift to a more mindful approach to printing is already making a positive impact.
