Social Values

We’re always looking for ways to give back and make a difference – not just to our own community, but to communities across the UK via:

  • Volunteering opportunities for employees through our partnership with OnHand, and through giving each employee a paid day off per year to spend volunteering in their local area
  • Supporting local economic growth with savings that encourage spending in your area, including onboarding Bike Shops in your local area who can offer our Cycle to Work benefit
  • Working with tourism boards to support discounts on local attractions and days out
  • Encouraging and supporting our Social Values People Champions, a group of Vivup employees who spearhead internal change initiatives to move our Social Value efforts into fruition
