How can ShelterBox help?


We form mutually beneficial tailor-made corporate partnerships that focus on staff engagement, attracting talent and driving down staff turn-over.

We can send staff members on evaluation deployments post-disaster to see and measure the impact that the partnership has created, creating engaging a rewarding content for the whole of your staff.

We have proven success in enhancing staff engagement in our partnerships with Aggreko and Beazley Furlong Ltd.

After working with Beazley Furlonge Ltd - a FTSE 250 insurance company - to engage staff globally, 78 percent agreed their employer was socially responsible and 83 percent felt CSR was the number one priority for the company to maintain.

Since the Aggreko partnership began in 2018, they have seen an 11% increase in staff engagement (measured through their employee engagement survey).

Laura Miller, Communications Business Partner at Aggreko says:

Whilst we cannot know for sure the rationale behind this change in quantitative score, this is a significant increase and I’m convinced it’s no coincidence that we see it following the announcement of our partnership with ShelterBox and the disasters we have supported them with.
