Making a positive impact on the communities we serve
The difference we make
Empowering local partners
We work with hundreds of local partners, including voluntary sector organisations, local government and education providers, to deliver our programmes in communities across the UK. By creating partnership networks, funding projects operated by local charities and co-locating our delivery sites, we collaborate to foster innovation and ensure our service users can access the support they need.
Supporting diversity and inclusion
We foster a culture that respects and values individuals and encourages differences that spark innovation, leadership and exceptional performance. We are a champion of inclusive recruitment, training and development, and have put in place initiatives that ensure our workforce is diverse and reflects the communities we work in.
Reducing our environmental impact
In an effort to provide more efficient and environmentally friendly services, Maximus UK has implemented several programmes to reduce our environmental impact. From developing online delivery solutions that reduce travel requirements, to initiatives that increase recycling and reduce energy usage, we are committed to working with our commissioners and partners to develop greener solutions.
Our commitments include
As one of the earliest adopters of the UK Government’s Disability Confident scheme, we are committed to creating inclusive workplaces and reducing the disability employment gap.
Armed Forces Covenant
We are proud to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant, pledging to support those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families.
Ban the Box
In 2019 Maximus UK banned the box from its recruitment processes, reducing the barriers that ex-offenders face when looking to return to the labour market and rebuild their lives.
