Capita’s Partnership Director on North Tyneside, Richard Carmichael, explains why the company sponsors a category at the North Tyneside Business Forum Awards event every year.
“At Capita, we’ve sponsored a category at the NT Business Awards since 2013, because we’re committed to supporting the communities in which we work. We have also aligned our corporate social responsibility activities with the Council’s strategic priorities.
“North Tyneside is a great place to live, work and visit so we’re particularly pleased to sponsor the category that recognises businesses which have helped to enhance the cultural or leisure offering of the area.”
Capita is the leading provider of technology-enabled business process and customer management services and professional services. Through its Local Government, Health and Property divisions, Capita has been working with North Tyneside Council since 2012. “We’re delivering a range of technical services for the local authority with the aim of delivering both cost savings and service improvements,” continues Richard.
“Sponsoring a category at the Awards gives us a way to demonstrate that we try to provide value to the borough beyond our partnership with the local authority. The awards night itself is also a very enjoyable, well-organised event that provides a good networking opportunity.”
