Corporate Social Responsibility / Charitable and Volunteering Policy
OSKVI is committed to working in partnership with the local communities where we work to support and benefit the communities.

We enable our employees to get involved in volunteering activities for 1-2 business days per annum on activities within our approved volunteering policy. This time should be used at appropriate times approved by an employee's line managers in advance, ensuring that it does not disrupt or have any adverse effects on our business activities and priorities.
