ANTZ, a leading social impact organisation in Manchester, is launching the first ever social impact learning accreditation, helping business leaders understand and respond to the importance of social values at work. Setting a new standard for businesses to leave a legacy within the commercial sector, the training will help companies build long lasting foundation that drives employee engagement.

The Scheme

The training to get the qualification requires individuals to follow an innovative internal journey, helping them gain a clear understanding of social impact and what it means. The task builds on understanding how to evaluate and report on work processes and their impact. Leading to the final step of building a social strategy aligned with the company’s business plan. Importantly, the accreditation will also help businesses bring clarity to what social impact is, keeping it simple and provide a straightforward methodology. Commenting on the new accreditation, Jen Pemberton, CEO at ANTZ, says: “Since 2008 ANTZ has been encouraging a business led and community driven platform that changes lives in and out of work. During this time, we have learnt that businesses cannot create a positive shift change within communities unless we give them an accredited standard and platform to embed social impact internally, and this can be achieved through our business led social impact accredited training which is delivered via Teams.”

Importantly, leaders of the social values scheme believe the accreditation will also help businesses bring clarity to what social impact is. Showing their support of the new accreditation training after completing it, Faruk Patel from Saraco Industries, a UK based manufacturer of disposable wet wipe products, added: “ANTZ’ social value training demonstrated how we as a business can align our social strategy with our commercial strategy to maximise impact both in our potential partner communities, but also commercially. The social value training is very clear and it was great to engage with a variety of different organisations at varying stages of their social value journey.”
