Corporate Responsibility

We believe that Corporate Responsibility is about doing well by doing good
We understand that this is not simply altruism but commercially sensible and as such it is embedded into everything we do, every day.

Corporate Responsibility is at the heart of our business and is core to everything that we do. Engaging employees is part of our day to day activity and is embedded in our value set which is intrinsically linked with the company’s proprietary business system for continuous improvement, The Unipart Way.

The Unipart Way is our way of working that has been developed over 30 years and which we believe sets us apart from our competitors. It is much more than a technique or initiative – it is a philosophy of working that is underpinned by a set of integrated tools, each of which can be mastered over time by people at every level of our organisation. 

It engages our people in delivering outstanding customer service while empowering them to find ways of continually improving our day-to-day operational performance. 

It is our basis for embedding strong Corporate Responsibility principles and behaviours across our business. It’s why we do what we do, and why we are focused on everything it means to be a responsible business.

The Unipart Way

A culture where a 'can do' attitude and a 'will do' commitment are infectious
The Unipart Way is a designed system that engages every single employee within the organisation.

It is a philosophy of working that is underpinned by a set of tools and techniques that form the basis of our knowledge management system. We have drawn previously on our relationships with Honda and Toyota to create a world-class body of knowledge for operational excellence. Now we have combined that knowledge with our culture and strong heritage in marketing and branding to turn the Unipart Way into a formidable business system.

The Unipart Way provides a foundation for innovation and organisational improvement on a global basis. When implemented across multiple sites or in multiple countries, it can provide you with a standard approach and measures that enable people to share best practise more easily and effectively.

Whether that means managing a complex global supply chain or sharing problem solving skills, The Unipart Way has already been used successfully to unlock the potential of businesses around the world in almost any sector. It offers people the ability to have ‘one way’ of evaluating and improving that can connect diverse elements of even the most complex businesses.
