Since our founding, we have embodied the true spirit of corporate social responsibility, and we are committed to the highest standards of corporate citizenship. Our culture and values are rooted in service, integrity, and taking personal responsibility for our actions, outcomes, and reputation.
As a business, we understand how we can help to influence societal change, and our CSR program has been designed to engage in the areas where we can have the strongest impact.
Our CSR program concentrates on four main areas:
A company with a commitment to ensuring the well-being of others must first guarantee the well-being of its employees. To ensure this we have developed a work place environment that prizes honesty, hard work, and altruism because we know that when our people prosper, our business does too.
The Rapid Group has initiated “The Recognition Week” to acknowledge the hard work of those around us than to take the time to express our gratitude Since founding, under the theme “Just to Say Thank You,” Rapid Holidays’ Recognition Week has provided opportunities for employees and managers to acknowledge their co-workers.
We work with preferred travel partners who share values similar to our own. We encourage travel that supports nature and wildlife conservation, cultural and livelihood preservation and sustainability.
In Sri Lanka, where our office is based, we are active members of our community. At least once a year, as a team, we spend a day volunteering for a local cause e.g. a local conservation project working in partnership with local people. Our most recent project organized by the Rapid Group of Companies was providing food, medical supplies and sanitizing products for an aged care home at Seeduwa (Sri Lanka).
We also encourage employees to volunteer their time in the community and offer them the chance to take a paid day off per month during the week in order to do so.
When you buy a holiday or experience from Rapid Holidays, you have the option to help offset your carbon footprint by purchasing a tree. Once a year our team personally plants these trees at various locations across the island. To date, we have helped to plant hundreds of trees across Sri Lanka; allowing native birdlife to flourish.
