Corporate Social Responsibility

In recent years, Crossway have made a commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) and have implemented several initiatives to promote social, environmental, and economic sustainability.


Community Engagement

Crossway believes in giving back to the communities in which it operates. The company has been involved in several community engagement activities, including sponsoring a local sports team the Lindley Swifts Under 12’s and participating in charity events including fundraising for Andy’s Man Club. 

At the beginning of 2019, Steve Fearnehough, Crossway Managing Director gave all employees the opportunity to choose a charity close to their hearts for the company to support during the year. Steve expressed how fitting it was that Andy’s Man Club had been chosen, not least due to the fact that suicide within the construction industry is far higher than in any other industry.


Steve said:  "We feel as an organisation we have a duty to look after the mental health of all employees and we are very proud to be supporting Andy’s Man Club."

Andy’s Man Club was set up to help men open up about their feelings and to reduce suicide figures in general. It was originally set up in Halifax but now operates across the country, and is currently run entirely by volunteers.

Time to Change Employer Pledge 

Crossway have made a commitment to improve mental health awareness and support staff. We have signed up to the Time to Change Initiative which is supported by Mind and funded by Department of Health, Comic Relief and the Big Lottery Fund.

 Our action plan was approved and we seized the opportunity to sign the Employers Pledge at the “It’s a Knockout” event, which seemed fitting as monies raised are being donated to the Mind charity.

 We want to make sure that all Crossway employees who are facing mental health problems feel supported and by signing the pledge Crossway will be joining a growing movement of over 900 employers.

Sustainable Practices

Crossway is committed to reducing its environmental impact. The company has implemented a few sustainable practices, including:

  • Recycling waste materials such as our old scaffold boards to the public, and any money donated for the boards will go to Andy’s Man Club.
  • Green technologies, such as all-electric vehicles and hybrids being added to the fleet, to reduce its carbon footprint. By eliminating paper-based processes, we aim to contribute towards a cleaner and greener future.
  • Digital workflow is also expected to streamline operations, increase efficiency, and enhance customer experience. The software’s we have adopted are ‘SMART’, which is for the Commercial team and ‘Iphorms’ for HR, to make these processes completely paperless.
  • The Iphorms app is used by the operatives to digitally clock in and out each day. They can also find all handbooks, contact details, PTS information and various policies and videos to assist them in health and safety, accidents at work and manual handling.

Employee Development

The company provides training and development opportunities to all its employees, including apprenticeships and training programs. In addition, the company has implemented health and safety programs to ensure the wellbeing of its employees such as the Mental Health First Aider and the Mental Health Awareness.  

Ethical Business Practices

Crossway is committed to ethical business practices to promote transparency and accountability. The company has a strict code of conduct that all employees must adhere to and has implemented policies and procedures to ensure compliance with ethical standards. These include anti-bribery and anti-corruption police, disciplinary procedure, environmental and climate change policy, equality, diversity and inclusion policy, modern slavery policy and many more.


Crossway’s CSR initiatives have had a positive impact on the company, its employees, and the wider community. The company's community engagement activities have helped to build strong relationships with local communities. The company's sustainable practices have reduced its environmental impact and have helped to promote a more sustainable construction industry. The company's employee development programs have helped to promote employee satisfaction and retention and have contributed to a skilled and motivated workforce.
