Our inclusive and diverse workforce shares a collective ambition, one that seeks to leave a positive legacy for future generations. Through our unique marketplace, we are proud to support the delivery of public sector social value goals that are both meaningful and impactful, extending the reach of this legacy beyond our own business.
Underpinning everything is our commitment to trust, integrity and credibility, so we may grow in an ethical and responsible way.
Bloom Essential guides our actions and decisions, making certain we deliver on our purpose and acts as a drumbeat for change and collaborative action.
Bloom Essential is underpinned by 5 pillars, outlining our long-term goals and objectives and driving action year after year.
Each of our commitments were carefully crafted and based on the values and issues most important to us. The result is five key themes that we believe will deliver purposeful impact.
We are committed to reducing the impacts our business and supply chain have on the environment and natural world. Our core focus is on activity that will take steps towards achieving net zero by 2045.
We will dedicate our time in the support of causes that are close to our hearts and purpose. As one team, we will be a movement for good, with a common goal of leaving a positive and lasting legacy for the benefit of everyone.
We will build an exceptional team who are motivated and supported by a culture that enables them to be the best possible version of themselves, at home and at work.
We are committed to long-term growth and continuous product and process innovation. We will promote a level playing field and equal opportunities for all our customers, as we seek to deliver maximum value for society and ensure that what we do today has a positive impact on our communities tomorrow.
We understand that everything we do has the potential to impact and bring about change for all our stakeholders, that we must act in way that ensures this impact is always for the better. We promote a shared accountability for Bloom to grow both ethically and sustainably and place this accountability at the very heart of our business. Our commitment is that as we grow, we will grow with purpose.
We recognise the importance of making a full and lasting commitment to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from our activities, in support of the wider commitment of the world to limit global temperature increases and their impact on the planet.
Our goal is not to simply track and monitor our emissions, but to educate and inspire in a way that generates a movement for collective action.
We have a responsibility to build a better tomorrow, that’s why colleagues at Bloom can take time each year to volunteer and support charities and good causes.
Our values are aligned with programmes and initiatives that seek to tackle the most pressing challenges of today, improving opportunities and skills in our communities, guiding the next generation and looking after our planet.
Working with Bloom to access the NEPRO solution has ensured we realise all the expected benefits from a neutral vendor approach in procuring and managing specialist professional services. They are a true partner and are continually looking to improve the way we work and ultimately the services provided by the suppliers.
Bloom was essential in the recent hiring of a consultant for a governance project within oneSource. Through the NEPRO solution, I was able to hire a consultant within 2 weeks of posting my project requirements. I was provided with proposals from a range of experienced and relevant suppliers and received valued support from Bloom throughout the process.
I chose to work with Bloom as I liked the idea of outcome-based projects. It’s so much more efficient, as it’s a compliant process without the need to go through the OJEU process as it’s still competitive. Bloom has many suppliers already available but we can add suppliers whenever we want. Having someone who can help by providing a second opinion; a neutral point of view has been valuable to us.
Through Bloom we were able to engage with Cardiff Council efficiently and help them access social care services they urgently needed in a compliant way.
