Catering People are thrilled to have our social enterprise be Social Traders certified.
What does this mean for you- our valued clients, our community, and Catering People?
The Social Traders certification guarantees that we have a social purpose as our business model. To clarify, significant profits and resources get invested back into our social mission. Catering People have met a definition that aligns with international standards. Which in turn gives our business credibility. Thus we will now work with a new network of like-minded Australian businesses. Ultimately all with an interest in social purpose.
What is a Social Enterprise?
Governing body Social Traders defines it as “a socially responsible business that operates to intentionally tackle social problems. And also improve communities, provide people with access to employment and training. Or help the environment.”
What does this Certification mean for Catering People?
By certifying our social enterprise, we have proven to be genuine and trustworthy. Also, it shows we use the revenue to uphold our social mission.
The primary goal of Catering People is generating sustainable employment and training opportunities. Overall focused on those with backgrounds of disadvantage or disabilities. A chance for everyone to have the equal employment opportunities they deserve. With attention to ones that can aid their knowledge, skills, and growth as individuals.
This is an outlook that has been upheld within the team by owner Camel Tulloch.
Carmel is passionate about helping others. Particularly, she loves forging community-driven and sustainable businesses. Her aim is to lead the way of what she sees as a moral and ethical way of doing business. An approach that puts people and our planet first. Yet still profitable enough to make it sustainable.
Carmel says, “I am driven now more than ever to grow our business model. To empower through providing employment and training. It’s an opportunity to leave poverty behind. To create a better and more prosperous life for as many as we can.”
She adds, “We now have more chances of advocating change on a larger scale. Member organizations recognize our authenticity as a social enterprise. This can bring more business for Catering People, which results in more jobs created.”
What does this certification mean for our community?
This means more job opportunities and job force growth for those that need it. The pandemic of the last two years has affected the global economy. Thus, the need for certified Social Enterprises is growing.
For our community, it will be the chance to link businesses and government to Catering People. This will help create jobs for locally disadvantaged Australians, to enable a life-changing opportunity. Even more so if there have been financial and mental health struggles during this time.
