Our Initiatives

Pure is committed to contribute to the growth in the region as well as making a difference to people’s lives and our initiatives have been created to support this.

  • Best Employers Eastern Region is a survey measuring employee engagement, culture and values. Produced in partnership with eras Ltd, the survey identifies and promotes the best employers and informs businesses of employee-led insight into their culture and values, creating a platform for enhanced engagement. Awards highlight best practice from innovative organisations in the East of England.

  • Pure and People & Performance Ltd have teamed up to provide a women’s leadership development programme to address the shortage of female leaders in the region and build a strong talent pipeline for the future. The programme is aimed at female professionals who aspire to progress to senior management or board level roles.

  • Compare My Salary offers real time salary information through a portal for candidates and clients across the region. For candidates, the information can be used to look at similar roles in the region and ascertain what people in their industry really are earning. For clients, Compare My Salary provides benchmarking data for talent acquisition and retention.

  • We run the Finance Leadership Programme supporting aspiring Finance Directors and leaders. In addition, we run a series of seminars and forums throughout the year with our strategic partners such as Grant Thornton, Deloitte, eras Ltd and People & Performance. Our series includes Finance Director Breakfast Seminars, HR Director dinners and Charity CEO Forums.

PurePure Charity

We believe in supporting and taking part in the communities that surround us. From the very beginning, we have supported a number of charities through fundraising, volunteering and donations. Our fundraising activities have included: climbing Kilimanjaro, Machu Picchu and the Three Peaks. In addition, each of our offices hold an annual charity quiz with all proceeds donated to local causes. Our teams are actively encouraged to support local charities and, after two years’ service at Pure, our team are given up to one week off each year to use for charitable contribution with a kick start to the charity of their choice of up to £250.

Over 30 different charities have now benefited from a share of £131,717.58 raised by Pure in the last 13 years including East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices; Lighthouse Women's Aid in Ipswich; The J’s Hospice in Chelmsford; Arthur Rank Hospice Charity in Cambridgeshire; The Matthew Project in Norwich; and Brightstars in Bury St Edmunds.

We are proud to be Pure.
