We continue to deepen our social responsibility concerns and welcome engagement with appropriate initiatives. We regard the provision of valuable employment and apprenticeship career opportunities for young people in the communities where we work as an integral part of our corporate social responsibility.
Our people are at the heart of STS Group’s success. Their skills, capabilities and commitment to excellence are what make us stand out as the partner of choice. Key to that is ensuring that we realise the full potential of every individual, making the most of their talent and skills.

STS Group have partnered with the incredible Haven Haiti Partnership and are providing some of our skilled employees to travel with them to their school build project in Haiti this September 2017.
The Haven team have been working in Haiti since the aftermath of the destructive earthquake in January 2010. In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew dealt another devastating blow and so once more Haven are looking to the future with a vision to build thriving communities which prosper independently.
STS Group are proud to support Haven’s work in Haiti. For more information on the work of Haven Haiti Partnership see: https://www.havenpartnership.com
STS are extremely proud to sponsor Waterford natives Denise Doyle and Enda O'Doherty who are raising funds for Pieta house this summer 2017. They, along with a group of enthusiasts, took part in The Pieta Challenge which saw them trek to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro with a washing machine strapped to their backs this July! Denis and Enda, along with the rest of the group, have done a fantastic job so far in raising awareness for Mental Health in Ireland and funds for Pieta House, Preventing Suicide and Self Harm.
It is estimated that every €1,000 allows Pieta House to provide support for someone in distress. The funds raised from this trip will go a very long way to making a positive difference to many, many people.
