4 Our Community (4OC): four hours, for community, for everyone.
Established in 2019, 4OC gives Knights’ colleagues four working hours per month to support a cause that is important to them; it’s truly individual choices at the heart of Knights’ collective and passionate goal to benefit those communities around us
Knights believes that the opportunities given to its colleagues to volunteer, fundraise and support a cause that is important to them and has a positive impact on their wellbeing whilst supporting our communities.
4OC is our community volunteering framework, giving Knights’ colleagues four hours a month to dedicate time and resource to a charity or cause of their choice.
As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, many charities and community projects face hardship. Our aspiration to deliver 50,000+ hours through our refreshed 4 Our Community programme has continued throughout the year, with Knights connecting colleagues with community projects.
Four consecutive hours, or an hour a week. No matter how colleagues choose to use them, four dedicated 4OC hours are allocated each month. Using a simple online booking system, colleagues take time from the working month to support a cause that is important to them.
From a weekly soup kitchen for the homeless, to renovating a hospice outbuilding, community projects up and down the country need support. As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, many hundreds of charities and community organisations face hardship. Now, more than ever, is the time to commit to our communities and help make a difference.
Every single colleague at Knights is eligible to be part of 4OC. Making a difference is an important part of our culture and we value the impact it has amongst our colleagues. We even work with some of our clients to support local causes and initiatives. Curious? Click the below link to find out how you could make a difference.Get in touch
