Yondr will work with Slough Borough Council to exceed its S106 obligations and bring local jobs to local people. It’s part of our philosophy.
The benefits also spread further out into the community as Yondr staff and suppliers spend their money locally.
Examples of this are increased expenditure in local hotels, local contracts for landscaping and site management, increased spend in restaurants and cafes, staff attendance at leisure facilities and clubs, cleaning contracts, local business supplies etc.
Yondr have a community-led approach to development, with ambitions to create true circular economies.
Skills and knowledge gained from working with data centers lead to new business opportunities for local suppliers.
Employment opportunities provided by data center investment enhance the Government’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) strategies. Through Yondr’s specialist inhouse learning team, we can offer partnerships with communities on workforce development and education initiatives that prepare the current workforce for positions in the new economy.
Data centers enhance the digital capacity for Big Data usage. This has a ripple effect through all aspects of the economy as it enables virtual learning, mobile computing, e-commerce etc, particularly highlighted during the pandemic.
