Corporate Social Responsibility Policy
IH InTuition Languages’ Corporate Social Responsibility
Travel, cultural exchange and learning; language acquisition facilitates all these enriching experiences. It makes a special connection with people, places, traditions, food, laughter and ways of life. For us, our courses are about combining these experiences. We are aware that we’re in a world of haves and have-nots and whilst education is a right in our part of society it is still an aspiration for many, either financially or physically.
The following principles form our corporate social responsibility (CSR) charter:

- IH InTuition gains customer satisfaction by offering reliable, high quality services. IH InTuition achieves this by committing to provide professional developmental and learning opportunities for all employees – enabling them to maintain their skills and marketability.
- We fairly compensate our host tutors for their contributions, provide meaningful performance feedback to them and provide them a programme of planned a professional development training. We encourage host tutor involvement in issues affecting our efficiency and our business. We also recognize that best practices in this important area continue to evolve and that, accordingly, we must learn and evolve as a business as well.
