Impact on Society
The principle activity in which Impala Medico is engaged that supports local/national / international society is its core business activity: the provision of temporary staffing services every day and night, all year round to ensure that healthcare providers are able to function when their full-time staff are ill or otherwise absent.
Without this provision, many healthcare facilities would be short-staffed or possibly even have to close.
The company is also active in training nurses to carry out VCT (AIDS) and Anti-Malaria programmes in Africa.
Ethical Trading Policy
The ethical trading policy guidelines are as follows: –
- to buy locally as much as possible to minimise travel miles of whatever sort, so we use local firms rather than sourcing alternatives that involve more travel.
- to attempt to avoid buying from companies/ regimes that have a poor human rights record.
- to source environmentally friendly products wherever possible and reserve the right to sight of suppliers’ commitment to ethical trading standards if necessary.
- Harambee spirit (charity giving) is encouraged wherever possible throughout the organisation.
