Environmental social governance

We’re a global business with a trusted reputation, and we have a responsibility to the communities we serve.

Acting with purpose

We serve hundreds of businesses and thousands of individuals every year, so we’re mindful of the impact of our company.

We’re putting sustainability at the heart of what we do, making sure our decisions are environmentally sound, that we act with integrity and that we hold one another to account.

As signatories to the UN Global Compact, we’re proud to join an international community seeking to address global challenges.  

We align ourselves with the following goals:

Partnerships for the goals

Reduced inequalities

Decent work and economic growth

Gender equality

Good health and well-being

Peace, justice and strong institutions

What we’re doing

Read our environmental social governance (ESG)policy in full. Here are some of our key partnerships and initiatives:  

Our carbon footprint

We’re working with the Heart of the City to create our roadmap to net zero by 2040, with a plan to roll out targets for emission reduction across our global locations, following an offset/reduction model until we reach net zero.

A greener future

We’re working on ways to reduce waste and minimise our impact in every area of our business, from the journeys we take to the suppliers we work with to our digital footprint.

Social purpose

We believe in using our resources and networks to support different causes. We run different initiatives across our specialist search and recruitment consultancies that connect charities, non-profits and social enterprises to professionals who can donate their time and skills.

Equity in the workplace

We believe that a workplace where all employees feel welcome, respected and supported is essential to our future success. We’re a signatory to the Mindful Business Charter and work with a number of partners to ensure our business is a great place to work.

Opportunities for all

We’re committed to reducing inequalities and we work with our clients to advance opportunities for underrepresented groups. We promote fair and equitable hiring practices both in our own business and in our networks. We support a range of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives that help create a more diverse and inclusive future for everyone.

Acting with integrity

We are a responsible business. We work in an ethical and lawful manner, and we hold ourselves to a high standard.
