One of the objectives is to protect the mental and personal wellbeing during this time

Along with other businesses such as Everton Football Club, National Grid, Severn Trent Water, global publishing firm Emerald Group and Experian, it will help to target the immediate challenges and recovery.

Former Cabinet minister, Rt Hon Justine Greening with entrepreneur David Harrison, set up the C-19 Business Pledge, with the companies and backing of employers representing 300, 000 staff and students. Universities are also taking part, with Bolton Group, Bradford Bishop Grosseteste, Brunel, Northampton, York St John, Staffordshire and Leeds Beckett all involved and putting pledges forward.

But those companies who are able to, can have a huge role in battling the impact of coronavirus and make a real difference in these uniquely challenging times

Further companies include investment company True Potential, Yorkshire-based Sewell Group and law firm Shoosmiths.

Greening comments: “With the future of many employers hanging in the balance and incredibly tough times unfolding in sectors across the UK, businesses face many incredibly difficult decisions. But those companies who are able to, can have a huge role in battling the impact of coronavirus and make a real difference in these uniquely challenging times.”

Employers that sign up to the pledge will be giving their backing to three main objectives to help Britain through the immediate impacts of the pandemic, as well as helping it to recover. The initiatives include helping their own employees with practical support and advice and taking care of their mental and personal wellbeing, publishing clear and simple advice for customers and doing whatever they can for the local communities during this time.

The C-19 Business Pledge is all about encouraging as many businesses as possible to get involved

Greening adds: “In spite of everything, lots of businesses have already shown amazing initiative and commitment to helping people affected by coronavirus. The C-19 Business Pledge is all about encouraging as many businesses as possible to get involved and then helping them do that faster and better by sharing all the great work that’s already been done.

“The early response has been incredible, and I’ll do everything I can to help to connect up British business to play its role.”
