Steelwork contractor signs up to show business is force for good

Posted on by in News

John Reid & Sons has thrown its weight behind a game-changing new initiative to combat poverty and boost employment and social mobility.

The Dorset firm – also known as REIDsteel – has become one of the first members of the Jobs Foundation, which is uniting industry leaders and entrepreneurs nationwide.

REIDsteel Managing Director Simon Boyd (pictured) has become a trustee of the independent charity, which will help firms to learn from each other to do even more in their local communities to relieve poverty and unemployment.

The foundation is headed by an advisory council of business leaders from a range of sectors, locations and sizes, all uniting behind the message that a successful society requires successful businesses.

Mr Boyd, said: “Business is a force for good. It makes an incredibly positive contribution to our society. It provides jobs, drives the economy and funds our country’s vital public services through its taxes and those of its employees.

“We are proud to support the Jobs Foundation in its mission to help alleviate poverty and unemployment while creating greater social mobility and delivering benefits for business, society and the economy.”

The Jobs Foundation has begun building a movement of business leaders across the country, all committed to helping people most in need.

Members will be provided with the tools and practical support to find and train people in poverty within their local community.
