Montala is dedicated to protecting human rights. We are a committed equal opportunity employer and will abide by all fair labour practices. We’ll ensure that our activities do not directly or indirectly violate human rights in any country (e.g. forced labour). See our Ethical Policy

Donations and aid

Montala maintains a budget to make monetary donations.

These donations are made via our Matched Giving Scheme and annual dontations such as the Christmas Card Scheme (whereby instead of sending cards we ask our customers to nominate a charity for a donation).

Volunteering

Our company encourages its employees to volunteer. We allocate a number of days a year for each staff member to take part in community activities. See our Community Volunteering Scheme and the examples of recent projects on our website.
