In 2016, Objective IT set up a Fund with the Essex Community Foundation to allow Objective IT and its staff to raise money for the local community in perpetuity.
The Honalee Fund aims to improve the lives of those living in the Essex community, particularly people affected by dyslexia or lung cancer.
Every year, the directors and staff support local and country-wide charity events.
In the past few years we have submitted a team of runners in the Race4Business, a 5km run though Chelmsford town.
Additionally, we host Coffee Mornings in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, and have held ‘wear it pink’ and ‘wear a hat’ days to raise funds for other cancer charities.
Objective IT promotes environmental sustainability, and energy efficiency in our own operations, wherever possible we go paperless.
Our carbon footprint is reducing. Staff are actively encouraged to walk or cycle to work, currently 25% of our staff cycle to work and 18% walk to work regularly.
