At Multevo we pride ourselves on being a socially responsible SME by working alongside our clients to build better communities where individuals can thrive no matter what their background.
Empower Communities: A community is a unified body of individuals working towards the same aspirations. Understanding the communities that we work in is crucial in delivering specific projects that benefit the individual needs of the community. We aim to adopt an approach which envisions 100% local employment on all of our contracts as well as identifying a local supply chain, including the use of SME’s.
Build a Resilient Future: We are committed to focusing on the recovery of society following the Covid-19 pandemic by increasing workplace wellbeing and assisting the local community to bounce back. Our workplace wellbeing strategy aims to create a culture where morale is high, with a positive working environment and increased job satisfaction.
Protect Planet Earth: We have recently introduced an internal Eco Innovation Forum which will outline our strategy to reducing our carbon footprint. This includes implementing a circular economy where possible, the use of electric equipment, sourcing environmentally friendly products as well as recycling waste.
Investing in People: Multevo are a Disability Confident affiliate, and our aim is to create a future where all employees feel valued and have the support and resources to reach their full potential. Our people are at the centre of our success and by investing in them through our appraisal schemes and training support we envisage a prosperous future working in unison.

‘Count Vacula’ – Collaboration with Nightsafe Blackburn
In 2020, Multevo created a Halloween themed promotional video for the UK launch of the Multihog CV Sweeper in aid of Nightsafe, a young homelessness charity based in Blackburn. Nightsafe were supported with a cash donation; during the pandemic the charity struggled with funds due to not being able to actively host fundraisers and Multevo wanted to support in some way.
