Seeds for Growth is a charity that advances the quality of life for those living within disadvantaged communities, primarily in East London.

We are working with Seeds for Growth on a pro bono basis promoting the the organisation’s work building community gardens in under-utilised areas on social housing estates. BECG used the London Mayoral and Assembly campaigns to promote this work to key political figures. As a result, a pledge to support the scheme was included in Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s manifesto in April 2021. The pledge gave Seeds for Growth an opportunity to work with the GLA post-election to grow the number of their projects across the Capital. A majority of elected London Assembly Members also pledged their support, enabling the charity to gain further political influence to further its ambitions of creating new community gardens.

In the Community

In our Workplace

Our approach to wellbeing puts the physical and mental health of our staff at the heart of our decision making. We train as many of our staff in mental health first aid as we do for physical health and safety.

All our people have access to an Employee Assistance Programme, and via our Vitality Health benefit, have access to Vitality Health Mind which supports all mental health issues with a variety of online resources and referrals to talking therapies. All staff also have access to FidlLeaf: a wellbeing and personal development platform. It uses Nobel Prize nominated science to measure and track 10 key wellbeing areas and provides tools to cope with stress, build self-esteem, develop assertiveness skills and much more.

Our Work that Works model asks for two days a week in the office, in return for flexible, remote where wanted working for the remaining days of the working week. At the BECG Group we work smarter, rather than for longer, and are flexible with start and finish times accommodating personal commitments.
